Apparently it was designed by Larry Shinoda of Corvette Stingray and Boss 302 Mustang fame. http://bringatrailer.com/2015/08/13/lar ... overer-rv/

Dodgetimes 2, Thanks for the link. To my knowledge, (limited), This is the only motorhome that came with a fiberglass hood and hood pins. Plus it matches the colors on my 1970 Hurst Chrysler 300 which is going to Sweden in the Spring of 2017. Another aspect is the unique / weird grey tank (waste water) that was burned by the exhaust. Regards, 42itus.

Not sure if your buddy is in need of parts, but a "for parts" 72 Rectrans just popped up on eBay. Might be a once in a lifetime opportunity to pick up a parts donor. Looks the same as the one you posted except for the grill/headlight assembly. http://r.ebay.com/U9Jljt

dodgetimes2, Thanks for the "lead". They are in communications. Is there any board member here close enough in Delaware to pick up and store the parts, not the entire RV until Spring? Surely he would compensate the individual for time, travel, and labor. Regards, 42itus in snowy SW Michigan.

Well, My buddy and I went in on the Rectrans 50% each. I posted an inquiry here about transporting it to Michigan. Like I need another Spring project but he has MD and is very optimistic / excited about this which makes us both "happy" . Regards, 42itus in SW Michigan.
