What, My coach isn't one of those BIG giant  coaches over 45 feet. It is just a small camper at 44' 11". A fun thing is I looked it up a while ago and my turning radius is 6" shorter with this one over the 38' Bounder.

Carl, you should have everything fixed now.

Foretravel is 2000 model 

the previous owner was Roger Berke- the guru of all things aqua hot. In fact he installed a new 19 gallon aqua hot in 2019.

This coach sat for a couple years. It’s needing a makeover. We will be having rain all this coming week and the detail guy can’t work.

Ernie, where did you get it and who is doing the detailing?  They don't have a garage/Bay?

I was going to post this in Picture of the Day but decided not to flood that thread, so here.

In 1974 I owned a 1972 Chevy Sportvan 20, equipped by TravCo with a pop up roof. The pop-up was supported by 4 corner pilars of tubing and was definitely a mechanical muscle to open.  There were canvas sides all around and two side zippered screen opening for cross air.  The back table dropped down to make a bed, similar to today's bench seat tables. Above that were two sets of aluminum tubing with canvas between the rails where the kids slept.  Had a gas furnace that was absolutely great.. I one cubic foot refrigerator, a single opening kitchen sink with a hose connection on the outside for drainage of grey water. The toilet was a square box with a padded lid on it that doubled as a seat, and inside was a toilet set and a 5 gallon bucket. You most definitely used chemical smell 'em goods in the bucket.  Emptying the bucket was at any toilet facility, gas station or park toilet.

Powered by a Chevy 350 engine.  Kept it from 1974 to 1979, sold it to my brother for $1500 as I was going overseas on military duty for 3 years.  Came back in 1982 and bought it back from him for $1000. He took good care of it.  Came to Texas in 1984 and sold it to an engineer working at NASA. He lived in it full time on the Texas City Dike. Last I saw of it a few years later there was a lot of rust and derelict looking condition sitting on the Dike.  I think the city finally towed it away.

Ah! The good old days.

Forgot to mention. Everything ran off of 12 volts. Two batteries, Service and House with Diode isolator to keep service battery from being used.  Alternator charged both when van running.

In 1972 I got the last Revecon built, it was replaced by the GMC and FMC in 1973.  I never did get the GMC, but I got the FMC in 1974 a 2900R, 440 rear engine with front and rear IS.  I sold the Revecon for $27,000 ($19,000 new) and the FMC was $29,000, it had been in a fire & rewired...New, it listed for $55,990!  I used it for 6 years, I think I put 12,000 miles on it.

Wayne, we have been "around the block!"

I believe it had a Dodge 440.

I met a gentleman in El Dorado Arkansas that was buying everyone he could get his hands on. At that time he was putting Ford V10s in them. I can't remember what transmission he was using. He said that being a Gas pusher with a rear radiator they always had overheating issues. I only spoke with him once and have on idea what ever happen to his business.
