1973 xplorer

Might be a little optimistic on the asking price, but still, super cool van with a nice layout.

Very very cool!!! That layout is pretty darn cool.

Always admired the early 70's Xplorer conversions.
(RV Trivia: I believe that the wife of the guy who started the company who did all the Xplorers (TravCo) was the person who coined the term "Motorhome"....)

I came really close to going the TravCo / Xplorer route before doing an SMB, myself....and that one really makes me remember how cool they are. If it wasn't for what ultimately seemed to be the advantages of having an SMB penthouse layout (and to having a newer van with newer RV equipment, hopefully better reliability/ease of finding parts/people to work on it.....)......I was veerrrrrrryyyy close on a couple occasions to picking up a really nice 1971-1975 Xplorer 224 or 228.....they look soooo damn cool......

Sharp looking conversion....first class all the way
