Detail by owner
Just in time for Summer!

Revonna is a rare, near pristine Travco 270 that has been lovingly restored and maintained. We bought her from a gentlemen in West Virginia who was the third owner, and along with the previous owner, went through all her working parts to make her one of the most reliable classic motorhomes out there. My wife and I drove her from West Virginia to Arizona this last summer, and more recently to Bend, Oregon without a problem. We've had minor maintenance, such as oil changes, and had her inspected along the way.

30,593 miles and 760 hours on the Onan generator.
The previous owner's description is as follows:

"Mechanical: Prior owner had the drivetrain rebuilt. Engine has Comp cam RV cam. Last year I pulled the radiator out and had it recored and had the heater core rebuilt at same time. While the front was apart I replaced the water pump, thermostat, and put in powermaster starter. Kept the good starter, thermostat and water pump as backups. Has a new stock style distributor with a petronix kit and MSD Coil. I also have spare petronix and coil as backups. Quickfuel SS 730 cfm carb.Replace all belts, hoses included heater core hoses. New large transmission cooler. Also converted to GM style Single wire alternator mounted high on the engine with custom brackets. This allows for more reliable GM alternator and is MUCH easier to set the timing.
Brakes have been fully rebuild this winter. New master cylinder, wheel cylinders, etc. Brake adjusters are no longer available so I cleaned and greased them and got the brakes adjusted properly.
Also installed last winter are NEW 19.5 inch Rickson truck wheels powder coated white and brand new Micheline tires. These got rid of the split rim design and are tubeless.
Much work has been done on the electrical system. It has a new fuse block that handles accessories and also a later "spade" style fuse block which handles high amperage circuits. Have rewired accessories and ignition circuits. Replaced all exterior bulbs and cleaned or replaced bulb sockets that were corroded. Added a new perko switch to handle switching between batteries and replaced battery cables. Removed the stock inverter and installed a charge wizard inverter and two new optima deep cell batteries to run the house. Uses a separate batter to handle starting the engine and a forth battery starts the generator. Have rewired the 120amp "house" electric box and added new connectors for easily switching between generator and shore power.
Added Autometer gauges. Large Sun Supertach mounted on dash and oil, temp, volts under dash. Added trailer brake controller. Has new touch screen radio with a backup camera that activates when in reverse.
Generator starts easily and runs smooth. Has been tuned up and has plenty of power to run everything while boon docking.

Exterior: Prior owner had this Travco repainted white with Blue stripe. Looks great. In some spots there are some small paint blemishes in the blue stripe that you have to get a few feet away to see. Roof has sealer coating. No leaks.
Had large owning with new checkered flag fabric. Also has new fabric on small awnings for each window.
Had heavy duty custom made hitch. Has both style electrical trailer connectors.
Had large storage box on top where I keep lots of spare parts and supplies. I took it down and replaced the hitch and the latches.
Has air horn. It is also set up to use the small onboard air tank to air up tires. The air hose stores in the blackwater hose storage tube. Not to worry, I don't actually keep a blackwater storage tube in there.
All glass is good and window screens are good. And has new rubber gaskets around windows. No leaks.

Appliances: Last summer but in a new Advent 15,000 btu roof a/c. There is no problems with staying cold. Will get cold on low setting on an 85 degree day. Water system has been redone new pipe. No leaks in the water system. New water heater will get the water very hot. Has new 40 gallon fresh water tank. Water pump pressure good for boon docking.
Original refrigerator works great. Prior owner had it serviced in 2007. Couple years ago I added new door seals. I had plans to replace it for reliability but I really enjoy the vintage look and thought a new style would ruin the look of the interior. Runs on 120v, 12v and propane. Still cools to 40 degrees and freezer makes ice cubes so left it alone. Has the original stove and oven. After a good cleaning and they work perfect. Have cooked many meals with them. Has a newer roof vent and fan in both the main unit and bathroom. Has touch screen radio with 4 alpine 6x9s in the ceiling. I wired the TV sound to play through the radio speakers. Has two LCD tv's. The rear TV is 12v with built in DVD player so kids can watch TV in back while driving without running generator. Sink has pull out faucet. Has newer suburban furnace put in by prior owner. Has two large propane tanks. Someone added an auxiliary tank in the driver side rear.

Interior: I tried to upgrade the interior while still keeping as much vintage vibe as possible. All decorations can be removed. Carpet and front walls have been redone. I wanted to keep the cabinets because they have neat designs so gave them a couple coats of minwax. I added many vintage decorations throughout. Installed antique vintage amber bubble fixtures above the couch. Two year old jackknife couch with pullout drawer. Two year old quality mattresses. The center table was also put in about two years ago. Early this year bought a new bench seat with storage. Has LED "mood" lighting and many florescent fixtures throughout. Using a positionable computer monitor arm flipped upside down and some custom welding I build a bracket for the front TV so it can be moved around to any position and even swings out the window to watch TV outside. The original curtains where in great shape so I had the dry cleaned and replaced any broken clips. Has curtains for every window including for the front windshield. I put a USB/aux input down in the dash for playing through the radio. Everything in bathroom works good including toilet and shower."

And we haven't done much since we've had it: we replaced the leaking windshield washer fluid reservoir and have driven her across the country.
Feel free to ask any questions or request additional photos.
