Here are a couple pics of our interior. Everthing is still original.

Thanks for posting, 88Barth. I recall that a Barth was one of the first motorhomes I saw as a kid, belonged to a neighbor who owned a truck business. I remember it was like brand new.

All I can see in this post is an image icon, not the image itself so I don't know if it worked. I went to Picasa and got the photo's url.
Right click on the link to your photo in Picasa, then choose copy (if you are using Windows), then choose the little icon above that looks like a mountain with a sun over it. Then click the CTRL key then the V key and that will paste the link into the first box of the little window that pops up. Click Insert.
Viola~~~!!! For anyone trying to insert photos here and having a bit of a fuss.

I owned this 1968 Corvair-powered Ultra Van for 16 years (1991 - 2007).







I sold it in one day on the internet with this web ad:

http://home.roadrunner.com/~kwildman...tra%20Van.html

My replacement coach is 50% longer and 50% taller, but only 6" wider.

That is over the TOP.

Thanks a million for sharing that true classic. I had never heard of a corvair powered Motor Home.

Hi,
This is our 1986 Vixen TD21. It is powered by a BMW turbo disel 2.4 liter engine. We get around 30 MPG with it. We love it. Go to You Tube and type in Vixen RV to get a video of its history. Or you can click on the following: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...=vixen+rv&aq=f

Toyota Sunland Express 1985



I see the image icon but no picture. I'm going to submit this and see what happens.

MBL

Also, I thought I had joined this group but no affiliation shows up under my avatar.

Well, I see it once again didn't work. I followed the instructions someone gave for getting the picture from my Picasa album. I have the picture on my desktop but iRV2 doesn't allow uploads from there. It's such a pretty little rig, I'd love to show you.

I remember when these were brand new. I only saw a couple of them on a dealer's lot. But some very clever engineering. How about an interior shot?
