The Futureliner tjhat sold for 4million plus at B-J auction was one that was not a motorhome. It was a portable stage for presentations and such.The side opens up to show the stage.
The white Futureliner that is privately owned and restored, has an amazing interior of woods and leather, with a full bar and lounge pit area. I am figuring that one must be worth even more.
So my 82 airstream should bring maybe 500,000 at B-J next year?
Oh yeah if I put a '69 427 fuelie Vette on as a toad!

You'd probably do slightly better with the Delorean designed '64 Pontiac Banshee XP-833 Coupe Prototype instead of the 'Vette... only two were made!

There is a website that I visited some time ago that documented the restoration of a Futureliner. It was the one used for presentations. The whole side opened up and I remember there were interior steps to the driving area.
