I just sent an email to the guy that sent me the photos and asked him to take some of the interior if at all possible and find out some more info.  Hopefully it is still where he is staying.  I talked to Jim on the phone a while ago........I bet he is going to be up all nite trying to find out more about it.

Got a reply.  Owners are gone right now but should be back for Thanksgiving.  Neighbor said that it was built in Mass. and that a boat builder did the fiberglass work. All of this info is 2nd and 3rd hand. Will get interior pics and the facts when the folks get back. Stay tuned. Smiley

So, is the front end on that thing original Pete?  Or is it a fiberglass add on? 

That's one cool looking RV.

A friend of mine just built a Kingsley repro on a Volvo chassis. He did some really nice work on it.

Below, there's a "372":

Yes, there has been some great work done to the front too!

Thanks for sharing!

ROFLMAO!

Jack reminds me of when Frieghtliner, Pete, KW, & IH all got jealous of Volvo winning the same award year after year when the new trucks came out!
Anyone know which award that was?...

It was the ugliest truck award!
And BAM they all wanted a piece of it!

Well first Frieghtliner took it with the "Century Class"
Then KW took it the next yr with the T-2000 ! (which when it came out I nick named it "an extended hood cab over" and the name stuck. At least in the circle of "chicken haulers" I ran with anyway!)
Then Pete joined in with the KW Look alike 387 ! YUK ! what a waste of a red oval!

To this day I have to say the T-2000 and the 387 are the butt ugliest trucks ever on the road! JMHOFWIW! Grin

The fiberglass work on that motorhome is exquisite, but it seems pretty dated.  The look kinda screams late 80s or early 90s.

BK and Jack, did anyone ever make a nice looking cabover truck.
 Dad bought 50 new Frieghtliners in 1962 when White owned the Co. and I was in his office one day and he was looking for drivers so I ask did they quit because he never had a turn over in drivers he answered no I just have 11 drivers out with kidney stones. true story



good luck
