    Immediately I thought this was extremely appealing to the eyes...a 1966 Dodge Motor home.

    The interior is more appealing than the outside to me.

    It is appealing, I agree. Has a nice looking front end. Saw a similar one a few years back at a local gas station, very neat.

    Most were 318 powered. Love the looks - way ahead of it's time.

    Love it inside and out. It looks just like one that was a TV show Midnight Texas. Never seen one in person.

    I found the old add you are pulling the pictures from. That is how everything should be sold.

    I like this setting.

    Anything bigger than a 3/4 ton pickup better be diesel, especially if you plan on towing.
    If I just had to have this I'd plan on doing a Cummin's conversion

    Good news Doc... you can afford a fleet of them... but towing them home is another story. I really like these Travco RVs... They are made from 2 halves bonded together... fiberglass bodied... and MOPAR. Vette guys would know this, but old fiberglass is a big + and - at the same time. For an RV, no good excuse for leaks that aren't repaired right away (try to fix one on a flattop aluminum skinned one parked under pine trees... I did once :realcrazy:). To do nice fiberglass repairs and paint is a bigger PITA than steel... but patchwork is much simpler for those without welding equipment and skills.

    The fully restored ones may be expensive, but fixer uppers are out there. Quick search highlights...

    For Sale - Fiberglass Mopar's for restoration... Travco

    For Sale - 67 Travco

    Go camping with Dodge

    Personally, I still think these are overweight/underchassised as I feel about most commercial RVs... but they'd sure be cool to cruise/camp in.
