Hi! We just brought a 1972 Travco home yesterday. It made it the 175+ miles home in traffic with no problems except some loose lugnuts we tightened at a rest stop. I have been researching them and stumbled across your site, it has lots of great information that should help us with this project RV. I think we got a great deal, it has the 413, new brakes , new fridge, new stove, 2 working AC units, all the plumbing has been replaced and there is no major damage to the inside or outside. The undercarriage is solid and it purred down the highway. It does need a new exhaust manifold (which was included in the sale price) and the passenger windshield wiper needs to be fixed( we have that too). The upholstery needs some TLC and we are going to go pretty retro with it. Just thought you would be interested :)

Thanks for the pictures and good luck with your new Travco.
HERE ARE SOME TRAVCO PICS FOR YOUR WEBSITE:
We bought our 1977 270 in January of 2013 after searching for a Travco for several years.
We wanted a turn key Travco but that proved to be unrealistic. We have remodeled the interior and done extensive work on the coach since then, including brakes, cooling system and general maintenance. Next will be the exterior paint job.
We now consider it a member of our family!
A Beautiful 1977. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
This is our 78 Travco 270 named Tank. It has 70,000 miles and has had several previous owners. Bruce and Rachel Williams in SW Missouri
A Beautiful 1978, Thanks for sharing your pictures.
This 1969 Travco belongs to Ronald Lynn from Roseville, Michigan.
The next 1967 Travco belongs to Ed Campbell along with this message;
Really glad to have found your site, hoping I can rely on the experiences of others to help me in the restoration of my purchase. I've always admired them but just yesterday was presented with an opportunity to buy a restoration project. My plans are to have her completed in two years.
It's a '67 with the anemic 318 wide block and a four barrel but it starts the first time every time and runs really well, just really underpowered. I have a 413 and tranny out of a '63 Chrysler that I may transplant but that's down the road. Yes, she's rough but I saved it from the salvage yard crusher so it made me smile to find it and to save it. I've restored a lot of cars over the years but this will be my first motorhome ever and my first motorhome restoration.
Everything including all of the exterior lights are in working order but it will all need to be gone through of course. Even the four cylinder engine/generator is there. To me it was like finding a pot of gold so I can't wait to get started on her.
I'd be interested in finding some sources for original fixtures (interior lights, etc.) and exterior parts as I may need them.
If you'd like you can post my information and or pics. Thanks in advance!
Ed Campbell is located in Strasburg, Lancaster County Pennsylvania
The Next Travco named Bubbles belongs to Ted Heath. He sent the following message;
Here is Bubbles, we horse traded a 95 dr 650 for her. The 318 purred the whole 500 mile trip back to So-cal.
I'm amazed at how much of the original equipment that it has and how much of it still works. (Couldn’t get cruise control 2 work.)
Does the charging on main engine system run thru generator? The guy tells me the engine battery won't charge because it needs a relay on the generator. Does that make sense?
Any clue where to get the seats for the dinette? BTW thanks for the awesome site!
Thanks for lightning quick response Andy.
So I guess I missed a big drawer when I was cleaning bubbles out. My mouth fell open when I found all this stuff. There's a book that has an owner’s manual for everything on the motorhome, heater, refrigerator, stove, generator ...everything. (Who knew that there was a system for a high pressure water system built into it). I thought all that was pretty cool until I came to the big draft style drawings. It looks like they were drawn in late 69 for the people that bought bubbles originally. Being a history major I'm kind of a sucker for that stuff, very neat.
A little history on why I'm a big softy on Travco. My mom took me out of the 6th grade when my parents divorced and she bought a class c GMC Jimmy Mini for a kind of drive about.
Apparently not the strongest of motors as it blew up by the time we got to Tulsa. Instead of arguing with the dealer and waiting for them to fix it, she proceeded to rent a 27 foot Travco. 3 months and 30 States later we came back to Tulsa to pick the gmc up.
She ended up getting a job with trailer life Magazine and we rented that motor home 2 more years to go and rate campgrounds and sell advertising for the directory.
So being the first vehicle that I ever drove at 11 years old you can see my joy to have another Travco. Ha ha.
P.S. If there is ever any kind of shindig were all the Dodge motorhomes get together, please let me know
Ted Heath is in Southern California.
This 1977 belongs to Dwayne Poe
The following 1966 in need of restoration belongs to Marilen Monrow.
Greetings! Im so happy to have stumbled onto your website! My mother in law bought a house near Atlanta, GA, it had been vacant for 20 years. Completely buried under trees and behind 20ft tall bushes, we find an old 1966 Dodge MotorHome. Previous owner days it ran when he parked it there.... But now its in bad shape. MIL doesn't want to deal with it, I love old classics of anything, and see value in this moldy rig. It's a big project, that will likely take me years to complete. I started to clean one side, which you can see in the pics. The other side is still nasty. I am here looking for any advice on what I should do with it! Like, what kind of wood should I use to replace the floor? What is the most economical exterior paint? How can I clean the mold out of the headliner, or should I throw it away? Same with the seats? Any info is appreciated, and I am already getting so much info from others' projects! I can be reached at Marilenmonrow@gmail.com. Best regards, Thanks again
Good Luck Marilen

Hello James.....the pic of my 1980 AVCO will be sent from another computer later. I worked in another division of AVCO but loved the typical engineering I was used to being in the Space and Missiles Divisions.
I never saw another one and sold it to a gentleman in Palm Springs.
I now have a 1973 Travco after owning a 1975 Travco years ago....wish I never sold that one.
My current 1973 22ft Travco is attached. Thanks for letting me brag!
