Put the running gear from a modern Dodge truck, ie with a Cummins...

There was a Glastron fiberglass motorhome on Ebay recently that sold for $5400. It was turquoise and white from the sixties and was beautiful.

My sister and I (both RV freaks) were drooling over that one. Only a severe lack of funds kept that thing out of one of our driveways.

I watch the TV show 'Breaking Bad'.

I can't see a motorhome without yelling 'METH LAB! or screaming 'Let's COOK, BABEEE!'

Elderly couples can't see any of this behind my mirrored visor.

it's not as bad as it sounds.
I just lease a nice wooded lot to people when they get tired of hauling the things around.
When i look at the things all i see is a big $ sign.
I own the hotel California for RV's.

I know where two Ultravans are. One in Palo Alto and one in East Palo Alto. The one in East Palo Alto has a 455 Olds in it.

I have one of these(turquoise and white 65') trust me when I say there is nothing remotely relaxing about driving around a 45 year old motorhome of questionable mechanics,I was all into it at one time had a bunch of work done to it, redid the floors in Bamboo, got all the crap needed to take the fam camping, I've got about a used KLR into it at this point and honestly, me, and I'm sure my neighbors, cannot even stand the sight of it out the kitchen window, every friggin' day for the last three years! THINK BEFORE YOU BUY!!!!

Not a motorhome but my wife and I bought this recently to use around the west. It's very comfortable inside with a stove, fridge, and furnace. Double bed. Weighs 1000 lbs. Tows very easily. It's a 1982 Burro 13'.

Just got done replacing the tires (175/80 13") and wheel bearings and have begun to use it. Works great. Just add a 10x10' EZ Up, some camp chairs, and booze and you're all set.
