It's appealing, in an odd sort of way. Maybe the colours.

It looks quite a bit like the early 1970s Winnebagos, except for the paint.

Mid '70's to mid '80's.

Those are OU (Oklahoma University) school colors, crimson and cream. Looks like it was painted from original colors...

The colors are good! Tell your buddy to pass the hat and get the door painted up, and post back again. A bunch of us like the old road horses.

It is a 1966, 18' Winnebago. The feller delivering it drove it from the UPPER PENINSULA at a top speed of 45 mph. It was all original, one owner, 23k on the odometer. The entire ride, he had to drive with the windows and door open. The exhaust pipe was directly emptying into the moho. The temps were below freezing the entire time.
It was heading to Australia for a new start in life.
oh, yeah 5 Miles PER GALLON!
