^^ Yes this 290 looks worthy of serious consideration.
I do wonder if the conversion is well fettled in, if so that and the rear bed, general refreshed condition could make for desirable rig to get into!

Sure sounds like it. It would be paying 50 cents on a dollar if all is as described. But then again, we all know that there is always more to the story. Only drawback I see is the lack of awnings

Does the stock th400 tranny mate up with that chevy diesel? He doesnt mention a transmission change. I guess that motor is a Detroit, does it have a good reputation?

No matter how you slice it, that is a fine coach! If I were still looking, I would probably have grabbed it myself.

Considering all the mechanical work that was done to that moho, how do you end up with a picture of the toilet rather than the engine?

That seemed strange to me also. It could be the fly in the ointment. I've done several engine and drivetrain retrofits in classic vehicles and have seen many more. It can be done very eloquently and reliable or an unmaintainable mess.

Easy to torch these engines if you don't know how to operate them.
