This majestic looking beast has a stock engine which has been painstakingly and expertly rebuilt before being converted to 12-volt. Needless to say, the vibrant turquoise colour way (both inside and out) are going to turn heads aplenty and we can just picture this camper heading down Route 1 in California here at Coolector HQ.
