Perhaps "PINK FlOYDS" is in reference to the "Pink Flamingos" plastic yard ornaments that can be seen around many trailers in America. Especially in Arizona and Florida. I don't know why mostly old and retired people put them around their trailers and houses. Perhaps when I get older and retired I'll understand.
For more information about the Ute Liner motorhome try http://sites.google.com/site/uteliner/.
Steven, thank you for your reply ( becareful of my poor english ) On websites, when you try to find some details on USA collector trailers and motorhomes you see around RV's ( yes I understand "RV's"- LOL -recreative vehicule,thank's Jim) "pink floyd, pink flamingo".In France, at a collector trailers meeting, we put pink flyod around our american trailers wihtout knowing WHY.That is my question.Especialy with AIRSTREAM, for sale or in a camp you can see PINK FLYOD!!!!
With your website address I can see some details on uteliner, thank's again.
i am new to this forum but i do own one of the rvs that you are describing. mine is a 1972 uteliner. its powered by a 345 cubic inch v8(about 5.6 liters) international harvester motor and it rides on an international harvester 1510 motorhome chassis. The coach body is made by uteliner. From what i can tell they are pretty rare. Also, according to what i have seen, they were absolutely the toughest motorhomes on the road in the 1970s. All were designed to sleep 6-10 people, carry 106-206 gallons of freshwater and up to 123 gallons of gasoline. Mine is 30 ft and it is a castle compared to some of the new ones out now. all in all, i love mine. i am a 30 year old that lives in it fulltime and for a 40 year old rv, it has held up extremely well. my original a/c and original onan generator both work flawlessly. as for my engine(the 345, although a 392 was optional) i dont know because it has only 12k original miles on it.
also pink floyd is a band that alot of rv'ers listen too. kind of an acid rock band with trippy music.
Donald,( sorry for my poor english) YES of course I know "pink flyod" rock band, famous oldtimer cars collector.
I hope to know why you see " pink flyod bird near RV's.It's usualy to see american trailers with these birds around: WHY.
The true:a man in France wanted to sell an Uteliner RV's, I try to find information but I don't find a lot of things.The price is very cheap but the RV's needs a lot of Work, and I have still a lot of work with my trailers.
I start tomorrow to one week on holifays after that I send for you or for GOODRV's an address of website to see THE restauration of my ( little ) typical french RV's called NOTIN, the owner of the factory since 1928, factory still alive to day, not Mr Notin.
You can send me pictures ofyour Uteline RV's to my email box:firstname.lastname@example.org
best regards denis
Donald, thank's for your reply and pictures.
I have 12 oldtimer cars and trailers and I do myself all the work on my car because I don't have a lot of money...
Buying the Uteliner is a great fact: heavy, difficulty to come back home with this heavy RV's and find a ( big ) place in my little garden ( 10 km from Paris )
The Rv's is still to sell. denis
