#Auctionwatch: If gas-guzzling and vintage 1970s design is your thing, peek inside this 1974 Ford C-750 Camelot Cruiser Motorhome, currently for auction on Bring A Trailer.
The 55-ft-long mobile timeworn is a tale of two parts, comprising a Ford C-750 truck and Gerstenlager trailer, which were converted into the ultra-bespoke Camelot Cruiser by Edler & Company. According to RV Travel, only three were ever built, and this two-tone version has been refurbished and well-maintained from its engine to the green-shag carpets that line its cabin.
Power is from a 391ci V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission, and both the truck and trailer are finished in two-tone green.
Walk-through interiors offer nostalgia at every turn with woodgrain panelling and cabinetry, a built-in kitchenette and a yellow vinyl dinette with matching ruffled curtains. The living room follows the same theme, with built-in storage and sofas daubed in yellow and thick green carpeting underfoot.
In 1974, the motorhome would have set you back $150,000 – which is the equivalent of $905,000 in today’s money. Current bids are up to $120,000, and the listing includes two vintage 1970s Poloron Snowmobiles in matching two-tone green that can be stored under the living quarters.
‘Steel 22.5″ wheels are wrapped in 11R22.5 Ironman tires that are said to have been installed within the past year. Stopping power is provided by air-assisted brakes, and the trailer rides on an air suspension system. Service performed under previous ownership in 2022 involved repacking the wheel bearings and replacing the wheels, shock absorbers, brake air reservoirs, air hoses, brake adjuster cams, trailer suspension airbags, and shore hookup power cord.’
