From Road & Track

Thinking about pulling off a big road trip before winter kicks in? This might be just the truck for you. It’s a 1977 Ford F-350 that was converted into a camper when new, and it’s covered just over 24,000 miles since. A true time capsule, it looks immaculate and is said to work perfectly. Best of all, it’s up for bidding right now on eBay.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

According to the seller, this F-350 motorhome was converted by a company called Country Campers in Eugene, Oregon, and has spent its entire life in the Pacific Northwest. When not in use, it spent its time in indoor storage under a cover—unheard of for most vehicles this size. That would explain the condition and originality, then.

What’s more surprising is that everything on the truck works—including the onboard generator, air conditioning, and cruise control. It has everything you need to live on the road: A toilet, a shower, a kitchen area, water storage, and sleeping space for six. The only thing that currently needs replacing is the burner unit for the hot water heater, though the seller says they’re planning to replace it before the truck is sold.

The camper is currently up for bidding on eBay in Vancouver, Washington with a high bid of $12,850 and six hours remaining. If cruising across the country in a slick vintage motorhome has always been a dream of yours, this might be your best opportunity to make it a reality.
