I never heard of one and don't know Pam. When I went to look it up I found a really neat thread with all kinds of strange and wonderful RV's.

Most likely a stickie. The front end reminds me of a Winnebago of that era.

Roy thanks for the link! loved looking at the pictures. The one of the VW front end married to the sticky moho made me smile. Goes to show "love the one you're with"! Now, if anyone finds a Scamp Moho within driving distance of Portland, Oregon that's for sale... send me a PM. I don't want to discuss motorhomes on this forum. YMMV

I've seen one. It's a stickie. Only the front and back "endcaps" are made of molded fiberglass.

You are welcome.
I liked the one with the sailboat on top, or the citroen that looked like a hearse with the tandem wheels and a pop top.

Now completely off-topic - but you might like to see other Tissier conversions of Citroens into load-carriers, with up to 10 wheels!

The text is in French but, whadyaknow, the pictures are all in English.....
