Dos look nice both coming and going. Nice color scheme as well. Easy on the eyes. Folks who do nice work are just great. Fantastic to see such a unique project. Pat

Interesting coach, looks like it'd be fun for touring around. It sure is an eye catcher. Thanks for sharing.

Here is another one from the same Barnfinds source.
This is a production based model that is quite appealing.
I'm relatively new to the RV world so still delight in the interesting variety of rigs to be discovered.

Me too, Al. That Bambi/ Tornado is awesome! Perfect fusion in silver.

Thanks for posting that, could be fun to see what else turns up here.

So that is our challenge, seak out the coolest, most unusual campers/ RVs
And post them here, to stimulate, inspire, or just entertain.

Cheers Richard

I'm always looking for my next projects - here's a 1956 Cadillac-Motorhome "meld" that the Craigslist seller says were intentionally produced. The pictures show a ~complete~, if very dusty, unit. I've no knowledge of how many Cadillac motorhomes were ever made - perhaps this is a one-off, perhaps just a couple - for sure though, this is the first/only such that I've EVER seen, even heard about. It's in the Deming NM area, a persistently dry climate w/ a reduced rusting rate that allows lots of interesting "survivors" from days long gone by to tickle our curiosity - I'm not too far away from Deming at the moment so might actually go take a look at it.

A great way to avoid buying new axles...

I don't know how many were made either, but it was more than just a couple. I remember seeing them on the road in the late 50's and early 60's.

Nice model Caddie but a terrible result. Function yes, but at horrible cost to the eye. Maybe the right paint job would have sealed the deal, but as presented, which is likely original, the styling of this rig is something only the designer could love. Good thing that you don't have to look at the row away view while driving down the road. Usually a $9K price would be interesting from a vintage perspective, but it's just too much for this. Really going to have to find that one buyer who has the bucks and the love. Pat

Duh the light finally came on for me. I've been driving by theis 60s Dodge motorhome for mos. it is between where I'm staying and my Sis'S place 5 miles away.

It looks to have been a production model. Molded fiberglass skin with some nice details.

Cheers Richard

There was one like this at the Pismo vintage gathering this year in black. Looked to be in about the same condition.
