Time Capsule: 1977 Ford F-350 Country Camper

It’s rare to find vintage motorhomes in survivor-grade condition. While it’s been well-documented that they have a high tendency to become water-logged beaters after years as someone’s mobile castle, even examples that are loved by long-term owners are used frequently on the open road, often to their cosmetic detriment. This 1977 Ford F-350 is a genuine survivor with under 30,000 original miles and its vintage Country Camper conversion still presenting extremely well. It has never left the Pacific Northwest and is isted here on eBay with one bid to $12,750 and no reserve.

Bidding ends Friday evening, so be sure to check it out soon if a vintage R/V in pristine condition is on your short list of vehicles to own. The body looks incredibly nice on this motorhome, which is often a point of weakness when discovering a conversion of this vintage. The roof falls victim to either years of outdoor exposure, or a combination of that with damage suffered from l0w-handing branches and bridges. Water starts to trickle in and the occupants don’t notice it until it’s too late. Not here – this vintage R/V is pristine, and the seller confirms that the 24,632 miles on the clock are genuine.

And boy, does it show. The interior is pristine, and a time-warp at that considering it is a perfect example of what period styling consisted of. Dark, earthy colors with loads of fake wood everywhere – and it’s all in mint condition. This is what you want in a vintage motorhome, as those examples with wasted interiors simply aren’t places you want to spend any time. The seller notes the original upholstery is in excellent condition, and the only change he’s made is to replace the shag carpeting with a nice Berber design that matches the other upholstery surfaces inside. The seller even had custom carpet runners made!

The bucket seats up front in the driver’s compartment show no flaws, and the seller notes that the ab air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, cruise control, dual batteries, and 460 V8 engine all work as designed. The door panes and carpeting are mint up front, just like the rest of the truck, and the gigantic bus-like steering wheel is a subtle reminder that your arms are going to get a workout in tight spaces. The listing describes the full assortment of camping equipment inside along with clean sleeping areas for six occupants, and aside from a faulty burner on the hot water heater that the seller will fix prior to delivery, this is truly a turnkey camper with under 30K miles!

    Actually it’s a 76. Nice rig though, love to have it.

      What distinguishes it as a ’76 instead of ’77 as advertised? Looks virtually identical to my ’77.

        This one has the model badging on fenders, in 77 they were located on the cowl. Otherwise the two years were identical cosmetically.

        The F350 insignia on the fender (76) was moved up closer to the hood on the ’77

      It may be listed as a 77 because of camper conversion, making it an RV, would have to see if it is still registered as a FORD or if it is now a COUNTRY CAMPER titled from the conversion company.

      Motorhome builders have a over a year to build on a chassis, which they typically buy in lots. It’s not uncommon to see a chassis that is a year older than the motorhome. This is a 1977 coach on a 1976 chassis.

    The 76 had clear parking lamp lenses with yellow bulbs, the 77 had amber lenses with clear bulbs. Looks like a 77 to me. I had two of them, an F150 and an F250.

    You guys want to bicker on what year it is, get the vin from eBay and get a marti report. Or take the vin to carfax. Doesn’t matter the RV conversion. If it was intended to be one, then it was sent out for the conversion from Ford…. (off my soapbox)
