Classic Chinook Mini - $5500 (Yakima)

This 1978 Chinook 14' mini Class C motorhome on Datsun chassis is super rare and in unbelievable condition. Garaged all its life and used oh so lightly this 91,000 original mile mini is one of Chinooks most innovative designs ever. In many ways this one piece fiberglass coach is still ahead of its time today.
I recently completed the following work; new clutch, pressure plate, slave cylinder and throwout bearing, rear differential grease, transmission flushed and new fluid, radiator flushed and new coolant/antifreeze, front brakes, engine steam clean, full buff and wax, new floor covering in kitchen and dinette and Weber carb.. Front tires 90+ %. Rear tires 60%.
The unique design offers 6' 2" headroom. The twin facing settees double as dinette and double sleeper with 6' 4" legroom. There is overhead storage/ sleeper(childsize).
Kitchen features gas/electric fridge(very rare usually an icebox), three burner stove and ample counter space and storage. There is a hanging clothes closet. A porta-potti is tucked out of sight in the back with privacy door and curtain. There is a propane furnace that will run you out in 10 minutes flat.
Other unique features include the ability to see out the back window in the rear view mirror and large side windows(with screens) to minimize blind spots. Twin mirrors(1 regular view 1 dished view) on each side. Front seats that actually recline(rare in a class C) and offer legroom for 6'4" or taller people. A unique two piece rear entry door has very low threshold for ease of entry.
Very easy to drive, park and maneuver in any kind of traffic. The design gives one of the most stable rides available in an RV. Almost no leaning or body roll. 21-23 mpg hiway. 16-18 around town. Runs like a sewing machine. Drives like a dream and turns heads 'everywhere' you take it.
Will consider taking your gas guzzler Class C up to 26ft in trade. No junk since mine is not. Due to all the scammers and fakes I will only respond to phone calls or text. Thanks! Call DT @ 360-410-1284
