My Dodge Travco

Here are a few pics of my Dodge Travco...
The outside pics are recent, I am still working on painting it. The interior pics are from when we re-did it a few years ago but it pretty much still looks the same.
Drivetrain is a 440-3 engine, 727 tranny and a Spicer HD70 rear end with 4:56's. Runs and drives like a Swiss watch. Just put on a set of new tires and the Onan only has 680 hours on it. I wouldn't think twice about driving this coach to any location or distance.

Travco77,
What a beautiful job that you have done. I have always loved the Travcos, they were a nice unit back in the day, and you have made yours a nice unit for today.
Frank

I love the stamped tin to use as a spash guard in the kitchen area. was that taken off an old tin ceiling? Either way it's a nice touch.

It's actually a thermoset plastic product that is meant for kitchen backslashes. The panels can be cut with scissors and are very easy to install. It comes in various colors and designs. Any home improvement store will have them but they aren't cheap.

Here is a link to the product... Shop Fasade 18.5-in x 24.5-in Cross Hatch Silver Thermoplastic Multipurpose (Kitchen; Bath or Bar) Backsplash at Lowes.com

I am looking to replace the sheet vinyl a previous owner put up as back splash around 4 burner range and kitchen sink. I do not think it is safe for the heat generated by the range, like when a skillet is being used on a burner close to the sheet vinyl. Currently I use a cookie sheet on edge between the backsplash and skillet to keep the heat off. I am thinking maybe using some flat tin? Is your backsplash holding up to the heat generated by your range?

It is designed to be a kitchen backsplash. It's A thermoset plastic so it is unaffected by the heat from the stove. Holding up well and its easy to clean.

The floor is a vinyl plank flooring product from home depot. It is impervious to liquids and has the texture and look of real wood. It comes in all kinds of patterns and is not very expensive.
The paint scheme was there when I bought the coach a few years back. I don't have any history about who painted it.
