Is your RevCon still on the road?

Checking in to take the pulse of RevCon owners out there.

I have yet to see another RevCon operational here on the road in NorCal in the 2 years that I was renovating and now camping in "Flatnose Frank".

I did see one in a backyard off the highway up near Sacramento as I was heading back from Mt. Lassen (but alas, rotting).

Who's still on the road in their RevCon?

Hello from Minnesota!
I have a 1976 Revcon. I don’t know much about it but my wife and I bought it for $800.00 two years ago. Pretty much all original just slowly upgrading items as we go.

Im not sure how to add photos but here is a link to a couple photos.

Boondocking last weekend in the middle of the desert, way off any real road. Found the one tree to use as shade. Nobody even close by. So quiet, and beautiful starry skies. Great area for riding dirt bikes. Now thatís not where you would expect to find an almost 50 year old Revcon!

I have not seen a Revcon on the road in 3 or 4 years, so sad. I know they are out there lurking about. I have owned 2 over a 30 year span, last one a 1983. When the main gas tank fell out, going down a turnpike in Pa, 2500 miles from home, I lost my confidence in Revcon! But it was a fun ride.
