Travco Motor Homes

I came across this site and I'm not familiar with them. Are they related in any way to A/S?

The one on the home page top right is painted/striped like an A/S.

Thanks-John

No relation to Airstream. They have a Dodge chassis and fiberglass body. Chassis parts are getting rare.

I do find it interesting how they painted it, as it looks like an A/S.

I guess it's a form of flattery to you A/S MH owners!!!

Travco Motor Homes

Having grown up in a family with a history of being involved with the auto business - - my father was an office manager for a variety of automobile agencies during the 1970s; I can remember when as a teenager I saw my first Travco. It was at one of the dealers for whom my father worked. The dealer was the franchisee for Travco Motorhomes in our area. I was in awe of one particular 28 or 30 foot model that was more or less a custom order that had crystal chandeliers and a list price in excess of $50,000 in about 1973 or 74. With its introduction as the Frank Industries/Dodge Motorhome in 1963 through its run that ended in 1979 when Foretravel became the owner of what remained of Travco; it was both a predecessor (in the motorhome industry) and contemporary of Airstream Motorhomes.

As a teenager, I never paid particular attention to most of the Travcos that passed through the dealership where my father worked - - I was a bit more interested in the Surfs-Up conversion vans that were being sold at that time as well. We moved away from the city and that particular agency in 1975 so I hadn't thought much about Travcos for a number of years.

We saw a Travco on the road a few year ago in Altanta. We were researching AS MoHos at the time and from behind (and from a distance) it looked like an AS. We followed it for about fifteen miles. Super cool looking unit.

A few months ago I saw another one in the local Camping World. I was driving the 345 and the owners came over to ask me about my Airstream. We ended up give each other tours. Very compact, efficient interior. They were on their way to a Travco rally.

Since Foretravel Motor Homes purchased all of the intellectual property for the Travco units, I would call the Foretravel factory and see if they can give you the answer that you seek: 1-800-955-6226.

I have two links on my Travco page. I don't have any Travco units in my archives yet. When my wife's honey-do list gets completed, I'll get right on it!
