You know that phrase, “A face only a mother could love”? Well, this unusual R/V likely has a lineage involving a Dodge D150 pickup and a school bus given its distinctive grill and headlight combo, which isn’t exactly what you’d call handsome. Still, this bubble-shaped motorhome is dirt cheap at the moment, listed for $1,100 or best offer here on eBay.
What’s unusual about this particular listing is that the seller is simultaneously parting it out and also selling the motorhome in one piece. That said, he recommends contacting him before bidding so you can be sure the part you need is still available. If you’re interested in the complete package, he has duplicates of some of the parts that have already gone missing.
As you can see, this includes the gauge panel, steering wheel and front seats. He has another steering wheel and dash cluster in good shape, but some other items have been sold that there are no replacements for. These include the hood, a side door and a rear storage door. My guess is having never seen another R/V that looks like this one that those parts may be hard to replace.
One design feature I definitely like about this flat-faced motorhome is the amount of daylight that pours in through those big windows. Sometimes, old conversions like this one appear dank and dark inside, but this looks quite inviting. The full kitchen looks practically ready to serve roadside breakfast as well. There’s 440 power on board so parts-sourcing for the mechanical bits should be simple – should this Dodge be saved before being parted out completely?
