It looks like PO's went through and put up new paneling in the kitchen area, and bunk area, but nothing seems wrecked underneath.

The furnace, stove, fried, freezer, lights, etc, all work, but it has no fresh water tank, so we'll have to get one installed.

It even came with two large FULL propane tanks!

I can't wait to pack the family in and go camping!

Nice find! looks like it is in great shape, Ours is a 19 foot 1977 and we love to get it out and disappear for a few days.

74 ft overall. Looked like a long ways back in the mirrors.
ActuAlly it was a convertible. Something about needing to film the Actors in the open. The car and trailer are at 1:03

my new vacation home...





1977 Dodge Jamboree!

I just fixed the water heat, 2 leaks in the plumbing. 1 leak above cab, patched roof and fixed the ceiling inside, and 1 other part of the paneling by the door where there was a vent (I guess for the fridge or furnace) that had to cover on it so water would just come right in.

Already found useful info on this forum, thanks!

Our old 1985 Airstream 345 Turbo Diesel which we owned for 17 years and just last week sold. Will miss her but now have a nice Journey 36 to take her place.

We have friends who own an Airstream exactly like the one that you just sold. They would have to be threatened with serious bodily harm to get them to sell the coach.

Well like I said, we've owned her for seventeen years, made a lot of trips, and did a lot of work on her. Now I'm getting older and not so willing to do all the upkeep. Also we want to spend more time on the road and would like more room. It/'s time.

We did however find a buyer who not only will keep her in shape, but will probably polish the heck out of her.

It was a win/win.

That is one sexy coach! So much character. I saw a ruby red Foretravel with a double front chrome bumper setup. Love at first sight...damn sexy coach. If I were to ever own a vintage rig to tinker and toy with, it would be one of those.

I always wanted a Foretravel or even a Apollo of that vintage.
