Rare 1970’s Balboa Motorhome on Dodge Chassis
The inside looks original and it seems to be in tip-top condition for its age!
There’s storage over the cab area but it can also be used as a children’s sleeping loft. The dinette converts into an ample sleeping space. Curtains enclose the cab area for privacy.
There’s a door in the rear of the camper and you can see lots of built-in storage throughout the entire van.
The couch in sleep mode gives you plenty of space to sleep, even if you are tall.
The area directly behind the cab also converts into a dinette which is great during the day.
A closer look at the cockpit. According to the listing, the air conditioner here is in need of service/repair.
Is an oceanside view okay today? The vintage plates and cookware are actually included in the sale.
The exterior is also in really good shape! So what do you think of this vintage van camper?
