It is a 1970 Dodge Empress 2400. I am the 3 and 5th owner of this unit.lol Long story! My wife and I were looking for a long time for a class C around 20 ft and I had seen this advertised for awhile. everything we looked at had some kind of rot or smell. We decided to have a look at this and fell in Love! Its in real nice shape and everything works, but it needs a sparker to light the fridge.
It has a 318 engine and runs real nice.It

Now there's a nice classic coach. Does the cab tilt for engine access?

Thanks Ramblin. No the cab doesn't tilt. Engine access is through the doghouse in the cab. I think the handles may be there to help balance while you wash the windows. lol

Aww... Would have been the first tilt-cab RV I ever saw.

Maybe the handles are there in case you ever RV in Vietnam. Apparently the cops there need them to issue speeding tickets.

That 1970's has really been well cared for, that's an old beauty for sure.

Tx, I didn't see your old Silver, those are just awesome trailers. We have no leaks in the roof and never do anything but wash them down at times. Ours do not shine, I have waxed them and they will get a bit of a shine but they are the anodized aluminum that doesn't polish up.

I bet you know Eddie Huffstetter down in Houston, he is into these in a big way.

The one sitting in the yard did have either condensation or a leak in the kitchen window so we have to fix that piece of paneling. One of them had a leak at the back trunk and husband replaced the floor back in it and some into the bathroom, no more issues there.

We hope to get it fixed up and rented one day, husband has no time for now. I need to get out there and clean it up.
