You might review the movie credits for a clue on the name of the 'custom' shop that built that horrific vehicle

Would anyone really want to take "CREDIT" for that rolling stock?

I think you're onto something with that Corvair Greenbrier comment. The front wheel / fender area is very similar to the Corvair.

Regardless, it's a very unusual custom RV.

Here's a picture of a 63 Greenbrier

As truly awful as that Aironado looks, it would probably scoot. The Corvair Greenbrier was no barn-burner just hauling around its factory bodywork...

I dunno, I see some of the Corvair similarities, but:

1) the front wheel is too far forward on the MH, but too far back for the G10.
2) the mirror on the MH is placed wrong
3) The Corvair has a one piece wraparound front end, the MH does not
4) The slope of the hood on the MH is more rakish, like the G10...The Corvair is pretty flat.
5) The AS floor level is too low to accommodate the Corvair engine.

Still a mystery to me.

I still think the cab is a highly altered/customized Dodge Tradesman by the door and hood- wheels still in the wrong place/ cab sits too high-

I am sad that everyone agrees that the creation is so ugly. I worked on it for years...Just joking.
