Lightbulb Archive It !!

I find this unit very interesting also.
By custom do we mean a factory-built custom job, or a home-made customization using a travel trailer and morphing it with a cab & chassis or some other stock automoblie/truck? Or a "coach-shop" conversion aftermarket customization?

If this is from the A/S-factory then I wish the owner was a member here and we could have some history and further photos. I hope someone will save the above photo to our archives.

Do we have any camera savvy members in the Ft. Collins area who could visit and give us a report and pix? Strictly for archival sake. I'm not a prospective buyer myself.

Man, that is a wild lookin' camper. I almost get dizzy looking at the transition from the windshield to the passenger side door. Looks almost like it is make-believe.

I have never heard of an E-300 Econoline van?, probably some sort of beefed up E-250.

The dual rear axle drive also causes me to ponder?

All in all it looks to be well done.

Chas

You're right Chas there is something not quite right about that glass between windshield and passenger side mirrors.
Optically confusing if not illusioning!


Maybe someone is pulling our leg. got their holiday mixed up...thought it was April fools.
If it's real I'd sure like more info.

74 Argosy/Airstream Travel Coach

Hello from Ft. Collins, CO.
Thanks for the comments and thoughts on the coach, my Dad took two years to finish this machine. It is the third and final reworking since 1974 to get it to where it is now. It is unique and one of a kind eh? It runs down the road easy and fast and everything works great. I will be glad to give more info to anybody. I do have more pictures and am ready to find it a good home. This is our fourth camper/motor home and we are going to sell three and buy a newer class A to do some more traveling.
Thanks for your interest,
John G. jgilsdorf@frii.com (970)-227-0600

saw this today on RVTRADER for the first time, wow! a ton of work went into that. It reminds me of the one we posted some time ago that was completely custom built from an airstream trailer into a motorhome on a GM Chassis.
Amazing what people would do to have an Airstream motorhome before one was actually manufactured! No wonder we all like ours so much...

on the subject of classic Airstream motorhomes, I saw this ad, and thought how good the asking price made me feel, although it is quite unrealistic.
