This unit started out as a regular 4x4 pickup in 1983; it was professionally converted to an RV in 1988 by a company which has
since gone out of business. I am the second owner and have had it for 15 years. I have personally driven it for 60,000 of its 138,000 miles and most of those miles have been great fun and adventure. The unit is clean and is in decent shape for its age.
