Oh, look her over. She’s a rare, all aluminum body, vintage motorhome with a little ‘bustle’ in her trunk. This American beauty hit the scene in the early 1970’s as a 19 foot, self contained, motorcoach.

What’s inside this rare mystery machine? Word has it, she sports a P30 Chevrolet stepvan chassis, 350 small block V8, and has an automatic transmission with a 410 positrac dually rear end. Wow, she’s a real hot ticket!

Can you IDENTIFY this RV?

Hint: No need to guess what’s inside, you just need to know who made it. Now, watch a dash of this video clip from You Can’t Do That On Television and make your best guess.
