AS motorhome concept

This Chevy concept hauler would make a way cool AS motorhome with an alum. skin, IMHO (excerpt from Motorcade, Oct. 1965).

Very Cool

What a concept. I wish the RV industry would create concept vehilces like the auto industry. Concepts like these help push the envelope in all areas of design and engineering.

What about a deisel turbine/electric RV? Maybe a double decker with huge vista windows like trains (and station wagons) in the 60's?

They'd have to put that on a MH chasis! As it looks, that's be one heck of a tow vehicle! Maybe a 53' Airstream 5'er is in the works! Maybe the 'Titan Octa-Slide' (8 slide outs), 1,000 gal. tanks, 15k gen set, a few cubic yards of solar panels, heck, you could boon-dock all summer! Pay your few bucks at Quartzite and spend the winter. Maybe they could have a garage model so you could drive the Hummer H2 into the rear garage. Oh the possibilities!

Silvertwinkie,
We got most of the old trailer docs from the PO of the AS; the rest comes from Ken's stack of old car magazines and such. Glad you're enjoying it. I'm having fun looking through all this stuff and posting bits of it. I'll post pics from time to time - just enough to support your habit I promise not to stop until I run out of material or get my third rivet, whichever comes first!
Doug

I understand that these things failed in the marketplace because the driver (engineer?) had a heart attack everytime he went under a bridge.
