I've read some of Vermin's adventures.

Yes, if you can find a PC in reasonably decent shape for 1500 bucks, that is a very good buy. Most run twice that. Everything about the bike is great, except for the power is not typical of a motorcycle. Think of it as a light weight tourer. While it is not the pavement pounder the Goldwing is, it is much easier to drive everyday, with good wind protection.

I suppose what is most rare is that it is probably the most modified Revcon out there. While dropping a 502 in a Revcon has become somewhat common, its a little more rare with MPFI, and even more rare with the 4L85e conversion. Some of the other stuff is converted to disc brakes in the rear, converted to except Koni FSD shocks, machined bellcranks for tapered roller bearings and a highly modified front differential. There is a whole host of little things to, so many, I can't remember anymore. I'm guessing the coach has close to 200K miles on it, half of which are mine. And yes, it gets used year round.
I really like the side-skirts I wish I could find a set. Very nice.

I have done all of the high exterior, and a lot of the interior. Not having to climb up to mess with the clearance lights is a BIG PLUS.
As for the interior being easier on the eyes, I don't know, but we sure have more light in the places we need it.

Yes, and in addition, aged clearance lights are a very significant source of leaks. My coach marker lights had a plastic base. When I replaced them with LEDs, much of the old plastic had turned to powder. They were cracked on the inside from heat. I was able to by a package of 10 lights for 50 bucks. I preferred the clear lenses for looks. Goes better with the white background.
I also changed out the tail light fixtures. I had someone complain they could not see my turn signals during the day. With the long wires in motorhomes, there is a lot of voltage loss from between the front and rear of the vehicle.

Most of the clearance lights on mine are good working condition which is a plus. Only a couple are out in the rear. The light fixtures are in ok shape too. Of course as I said before. This motorhome was well taken care of before I ever got it.

Only 375 Ultravans were made.

We are blessed to have some with hopes of having a small private museum some day.
We plan to use and enjoy each and everyone once they get restored.
