Detail by owner
For sale is a vintage 1984 Travco 32-foot motorhome in very good original condition. I believe the model is a 32SBI. All original equipment, furnishings, etc are intact and functional. There have been no significant alterations to diminish the distinctive charm of what was, in 1984, a premium quality coach. We’ve had it out every summer for many years, including this year. It is completely functional as is if that is what you are looking for. Or with a little work it could be turned into a showpiece vintage coach. Engine/chassis is a 1983 Chevrolet with the original carbureted and HEI 454 engine with 92,260 miles. Transmission is the original HD 3-speed automatic. There has been no significant work done to the engine or chassis in the 20 years we have owned it other than replacing the radiator, master brake cylinder, brakes, fuel pump and routine tune-up, greasing and oil changes. It starts reliably and runs and drives well. Tires are good for a few years. The front tires and two of the four rear tires were new 2 years ago. The original roll-out awnings for all the side windows are still functional and in pretty good shape. The chassis battery was replaced this year. The coach interior includes the original LP stove and oven which both look like new. This model included a blender built into the small counter beside the stove and an ice maker – both run off 110 shore power or the generator, and still work. Many a camping trip included re-supplying ice chests with ice from the on-board ice maker – a neat feature. This model also included a built-in vacuum cleaner, which still works great. The original vacuum hose and attachments are all still there. A new Dometic two-door refrigerator that runs on LP or 110v was installed a year ago. There is a small microwave oven above the refrigerator. The freshwater tank holds nearly 70 gallons. We never ran out of water even dry camping for a week or more. Water pump, LP hot water heater, freshwater, grey and waste tank systems all work well. In the rear of the coach is a very nice bedroom with double bed, dresser, lots of storage, shelf/12v outlet/antennae for television and its own LP furnace and air-conditioner. The bathroom door doubles as a privacy door for rear bedroom. The bathroom includes a toilet, tub/shower, vanity, and large medicine cabinet. There is a large 2-door closet in the hallway for clothes, fishing gear, or whatever and a set of deep drawers. The living area includes a sofa that folds out into a double bed and a pair of swivel barrel chairs that are typically arranged around a foldout dinette table. The table can be made longer with two additional leaves stored under the table. There are two other small tables that can be set up on each end of the sofa. The driver and passenger chairs can swivel 1800 to face the living area. Roll-up shades are installed on each window. On each side of the living area are overhead cabinets that provide a huge amount of storage. The entire coach is carpeted. Everything – sofa, chairs, shades, carpet are all original. It all shows its age and there are stains, but there are no rips. The woodwork is all walnut and at the time was top of the line. There are a few nicks and scratches here and there, but the woodwork could easily be touched up to appear near perfect again. There is a furnace and air conditioner for the living area. The coach batteries were new last year. The coach exterior includes three basement cabinets for general storage, water heater, sewer hose, shore power electrical, potable water connection, generator and gas tank on the driver side. The passenger side includes an access door to LP tank, refrigerator service panel, 110v outlet and furnace exhaust. There is a large water-tight clam-shell storage box on the roof. The spare tire is mounted on the back. There are 2” receiver type trailer hitches on rear and front. The rear hitch has two additional 2” receivers to accept a 2’ x 7’ storage box in addition to the trailer hitch. Storage box is available to purchase separately. The generator is a 6.5 kW Onan that runs off the chassis tank and is plenty to power everything in the coach. It runs fine and has only 136 hours on it. Canvas wheel well covers are included. The major reason why a rig like this can last so long is that the entire coach exterior is made from solid fiberglass shells over a steel frame. Roof, sides, front and back are all solid fiberglass like a boat. We have never had a roof, window, or any kind of exterior leak. I have fixed minor plumbing leaks, but no leaks anywhere that typically compromises the structural integrity of older RVs. These motorhomes were realwell made and if taken care of, like this one has been, will last a long time. We’ve enjoyed this vehicle for nearly 20 years and really hate to part with it, but have decided it is time to downsize. It really is a unique and charming motorhome. When you pull into a campground inevitably your neighbors will stop by to ask questions and admire it. If you are looking for a vintage motorhome with real character, BUT is intact, fully functional and comfortable with all the amenities of a new rig, then you should look at this 1984 Travco.
