Not sure of the purpose of this post, but felt I had to ask...
Does anyone know or remember and older (guestimate late 1970's to early 80's) Class C on a Dodge chassis. Probably 20-22' long. Once used to have some blue color to the coach.
On the rear is the name 'Dorothy', and WWW.ROADSTORIES.COM
in larger black letters.
This coach is now, to be polite, maintained by someone with little pride. It's a rolling derelict, with a window air conditioner hanging out of the back end.
The 'gent' who currently owns it was in line ahead of me at the dump station. The person in front of him was having trouble getting his 'rustic' coach started. So I had time to get out and walk around (after offering to help owner with engine that would not start) the Class C named Dorothy. Lots of custom modifications, slightly lifted, two older roof top carriers on top, and two spare tires on the roof too. I asked the owner if he was the original owner, and he laughed and said he had got it by paying 'The impound lot storage and parking ticket fees.'. So old no smog check needed, in San Diego, CA area. I asked if the guy he 'helped' by taking it off his hands out of the impound lot had told him any of the history of the coach? Nope, he knew nothing.
This got me wondering, and thinking in a sadish way, about the slow decline of once 'Real Gem's' of older RV's. This thing had many thoughtful and clever modifications, inside (he said I could put my head in the door) and outside.
Some one named this Class C 'Dorothy', I assume from not in Kansas anymore? But who knows! Used to keep a site WWW.ROADSTORIES.COM
. This Class C had stickers from many states, as well as a few from Baja, and other Mexico locations. A 'Homer, AK' decal, etc...
Again, not sure why the post. But wondered if anyone may have recalled running into this Class C named Dorothy in 'her prime'...
Best to all, and keep them coaches taken care of
