This motorhome is one of only 20 in exsistance made by BBC RV Inc. in Wakita, Ok. The man that built them came down with cancer and ceased production. He has recovered from the cancer but has not resumed production of these uniqe Rv's. It is built on an Isuzu front engine diesel chassis and is approximately 22' long. http://community.webshots.com/s/imag...9tzIUsS_ph.jpg The word Navette means "Shuttle" in French. When I saw this come into the campground I was to say the least intrigued and had to find out more about it. I had a nice conversation with its owner, Lloyd Tobias and let him know of our web site and that I would like to show our members his motorhome and tell a little bit about it. It should get pretty good fuel milage but I forgot to ask what it was exactly. Some people in the campground thought is looks like a modern High Speed Train! It is a one of a kind. http://community.webshots.com/s/imag...4FGfSZe_ph.jpg "http://community.webshots.com/s/image3/6/8/14/92060814FCazTm_ph.jpg" As you can see it is a one piece fiberglass body.

Has anyone else seen one of these? Can you give us more details?

There has been one for sale in the Mooresville, NC area but it was not at the location on Highway 150 west at a storage lot this week [perhaps sold]. You can go to rvtraderonline and search. I saw it listed in there as well.

On this rig would the fresh water fill opening be called the "Navel"?

Hey Wizard, theres one here in Pigeon Forge at a nursery. I'm surprised you didn't see it when you where here. Also sorry I didn;t get to meet up with you when you were in town.

Thanks for posting the info on this unique motorhome. I saw one at the 2000 FMCA rally in Pomona, but never got a chance to get in touch with the owner at that time. I looked for info in it for a while, but never found out anything. It is one interesting looking rig.

I saw a Navette heading Westbound on I90 in New York state out of Albany while returning from Verona, NY yesterday. I knew right away from the profile that it had to be a Navette because there isn't any other motorhome that looks quite like it.

This is a very old post but if you have any questions about the Navette, I bought one in 97 and I still own it. I have a 26 ft on an Isuzu NPR chassis
