Evergreen Alabama is where they were manufactured, The cruiser was one of two models of the mobilux RV's the cruiser which is more common and the cutter witch was a smaller RV like 18 ft. It was a upscale Class A motorhome of the early 70's. A 24 foot motorhome based on a step van, It sold for $12,000 new while Winnebagos sold for under $9,000. So it was a top of the line motor home back then.

The designer was Emmett Dale, From 1959 to 1960 Engineer at Airstream Inc.
