1973 Travco 220
1973 TRAVCO 220 …… 413 engine/727 transmission/ 4:56 rear
3” dual exhaust done about 5 years ago. Rather loud nice voice.
2 new General 235x85x16 tires and new rims installed at the same time
These tires have less than 1000 miles on them
Rear tires are 235x85x16 Good Year Wranglers about 50% tread
Right rear shows slight weather checking. These are on the original split rims
Interior upholstery and shag carpet are original… (Light green 70’s shag)
Truck will need three new batteries...1 for the generator 1 for the coach and 1 for the drive train
These are separated by a Perko switch … battery 1, battery 2, both on or all off
Water heater and oven have been disconnected….Never had use for them
Furnace worked the last time it was used about 8 years ago
Roof air works fine off the generator or 110v plugged in
Stainless steel deck on rear for hauling miscellaneous?????
There is also a class 3 receiver hitch. Never used it
Truck was painted about 10 years ago and THIS IS THE DOWN SIDE TO THE SALE It needs to be repainted again
Slight brake fluid loss …I suspect a wheel cyl but have not checked but just top it off before going on a 400 mile trip each summer for the last 4 or 5 years
This truck was used only in the summer and never in the salt since we have owned it
Last summer it was not used so we are offering it for sale.
The instrument on the dash is a vacuum gauge not a tach…used to keep the Holley power valve from opening when possible
Cabinet doors are my wife’s art work and are not included in the sale nor is the vintage lamp on the rear dresser
This is our first attempt to sell this truck so I thought I should let the Travco group have first look.
As I stated earlier the paint is checking in various places. It could be spotted in but for a real classic Travco
Strip and repaint…..Oh, one last thought a small bb chip in the passenger wind screen. Glass guys say they can repair this by squirting in some “mending material”.
Any more photos needed or questions contact me. Any close up photos of the paint flaws or interior I can send.
Mileage is original as I have a pack of old registrations and records from years gone by.
Bathroom is original lamps, sink, shower, etc. Toilet has a slight leak on the fresh water fill side. Easy fix
Wiper blades are on the table, I take them off for the winter as the truck is not garaged.
It has an A&E awning that needs new fabric. Accidentally hit it with the pressure washer while cleaning 3 or 4 years ago
I did not replace the fabric.
There is a 2” thick OEM folder with all the books, manuals, receipts, etc. in the closet.
We paid 10k for this rig in 1990. Original receipt included.
Bunk beds in the rear. 2 on the driver’s side, 1 on the passenger side
I may still have the one that I removed but need to check to see if it is still in storage. Top bunk drops down to make a sofa
Since there were only two of us this was adequate but it can sleep 6 if needed using the front seats and table
I have been a professional mechanic and shop owner all of my adult life and in my own shop from 1979 until retirement a couple of years ago.
Current mileage on the truck is 38,736. It has not been driven since 5/30/12.
Firm price is $5k cash. Truck is in a gated area and can be seen by appointment only.
We are in Pa. one hour south of State College between Pa. turnpike and route 80
