"The Motor Home"

"The Motor Home" is a 1975 Dodge Sportsman Conversion Van on an extra long 1 Ton Chassis, 23ft. I came across this beast in a local news paper..I ended up buying it for a total of $1000 with a generator. It has freezing cold 120V AC and reverse heat, Gas stove and oven, Dual sinks, gas/electric fridge and freezer, Cab over bed, shower and bathtub, hot water heater..

The Sound system consists of a Pioneer 35W x 4 CD Player in dash, 2 10" Pioneer IMPP Subs pushed by Pioneer 300W x 2 Amp in a Truck Box mounted to the Floor where the old LPG Heater vents ran through..In the over head compartments on both sides of the truck are 2 200W Kenwood 3 way 6x9s..Sound is crystal clear and bass is loud and strong.

This 10500lb truck is powered by a rebuilt 360 Dodge Motor, with high volume oil pump, very large cam, Edelbrock Performer Series Intake and 750 cfm 4bbl Edelbrock Carb. Manual Choke...Yes it is a bit much for carburation, but it doesnt seem like it. Last but not least, 2.5" Dual exhaust, turn out before the dual wheels..The Mufflers are 2 plain old turbo mufflers..has a very deep sound you can about feel in your chest under accelleration..Nice Deep Mellow sound at cruising speed.. The transmission shifts pretty firm..Im not sure of the Diff. gears..probrably 3:73s, but it pulls to 30mph quick enough to have anyone standing sent to the back via air mail!..Spins those 16.5 x 8.5 Dual Wheels pretty good though...But since it is Gas and not Diesel, The fuel economy is about 8 city MPG and 15 highway. But I suppose its better than $50. night for hotel in the end.. I like the motor home..its fun to drive..Has full power..With all the performance products involved in it, I can consider it My Hot Rod Motor Home..and everyone agrees!
