I think Foretravel bought them out and just burned out the brand.

Yer Rite... Foretravel bought out Dodge, but not SPECIFICALLY for the Travco... It seems like they were more interested in owning the name and rights to the Motorcade Club, which they apparently still advertise all these years later. I guess what they figured, was that they'd keep selling Travcos until they couldn't anymore, and then the "old" Travco buyers would start buying the bigger, more expensive Foretravel coaches... Looks like it worked out for 'em.\nCHEERS!\nSlick

Yeah AFAIK the only part they still carry is the windshield gaskets. I bought a spare one even though mine was new just so I have a spare.
