Me and my RV

Is it the oldest one here? Dunno, but it must be in the running!

1963 Grumman, converted to an RV way back when by who knows who {but he did a great job!}. Chevy 2 ton chassis, 292 I-6 with a 4 speed. Has all the comforts of home; A/C, furnace, water heater, stove/oven, toilet/shower, frig.

Making a few of my own marks on it, added a 19in HDTV with DVD player, and an inverter.

Here she is, Rolling Funder!

Don't know if it's the oldest one posted here, but it's definately KOOL. Good Luck with her, looks like she's been taken care of really good.

Looks like a neat old "coach". Love the grill cut out.

Everything works but the oven thermostat, furnace not tested yet. Gotta get to that shortly, got some camping to do in January.

The grille isnt cut out, just a quickie paint job on a whim...works too. I find people thinking about pulling out in front of me and testing 1963 brake technology taking a look and then a double take...and they dont pull out!

Will probably loose the P40 maw when I paint the rig. Just deciding on colors.

To the amazement of some folks, I took it on a 1400 mile trip with my family, included a Disney Ft Wilderness stay, ran flawlessly.

But, its main purpose for me will be monthly weekends at some land I lease for dirtbiking, trips to offroad races and events my club puts on and a few others.

Got about 3K miles on it now, I think it'll do!

How many total miles on it now?

Per the records on our old trailer, it has been towed over 200,000 miles.

It shows 75K on the odometer, but that could be 175K, there is no hundred thousand digit. Wear and tear tells me 75K, but I could be wrong.

Some chips in the paint tell me it was originally a Sunbeam bread truck.
