Cool old RV

Just though this cool old RV was interesting.

WOW! Love it.

I've seen the one at the Henry Ford Museum. Like he says, it's built on an older Model T truck chassis.

Don't think traveling cross country on that seat would be as comfy as my heated leathers!!! Imagine bouncing over those old dirt roads in that thing. What an adventure!

What a shame it was sold to a collector, it will probably never be seen again! hopefully the new owner will still show, drive and camp with it!

That is really cool. I sent it to one of my clients who has a Marathon. I told him is was his Marathon's great grandpappy. By the way, his Marathon is $1.5mm. Tad more than most of us spend on our RV's.

The same client restored a 1972 GMC Motor Home. It is really a neat rig. Single wheels with two rear axles. All it lacks is the disco ball!
