Set up for camping ( see the pic ), it looks more like a pile of junk than a VW.

Hmmmm... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I just noticed that this one has the entrance on the left side, Brit Caravan style.... Didn't notice that at the show.

Restored and completely intact Futurliners are selling in the $4-5 million range. There is a story of one in South America that was converted into a motorhome, and one in Sweden being restored. Of the 12 built, the whereabouts of 9 are known, 3 are still MIA.

SHOW UPDATE


I talked with my local RV dealer today, who had a major presence at the above mentioned show, and got the following sales info:


Tent trailers sold: a few
$300,000+ Motorhomes sold 5
Trends:
Large trailers (2 axles) UP
Small trailers (single axle) DOWN
Class "A" motorhomes: UP
Class "C" Motorhomes: about the same as last year
They do not have a line of FGRV"s (But who does?)
Total Units sold: 217

Ironically last years show sales were heavily tipped towards smaller trailer sales, this year towards the larger ones. (Gas Prices are Down - DUH!)


They are looking to move their service and Parts departments for this location to a larger facility to be able to handle the increased volume of orders.
