If you see my profile, the rig I am considering is a 1968 Venture by Venture Coaches in Banning, CA.

I have been unable to locate any additional information on the company or the rv itself and whether there is any chance of finding a replacement windshield & rims/tires in order to get her weighed and re-establish registration.

From there, I can decide if I take the full plunge into a full frame restoration or not.

If it cannot be roadworthy for trips a few hundred miles of my home, then it’s probably only worth the salvage to reuse as an auxiliary bedroom permenantly installed at my second home.

Thanks for your interest.

Firstly, TY for having me.

And right into it-has anyone ever seen one of these guys before? The serial number shows “1005” which implies there were at least 1004 that came before...I am having a heck of a time finding anything online.

This gal has serious issues-out of registration, missing 2 of its rear wheels on a dually, split rims on what is there, virtually gutted inside down to the fiberglass shell, windshield has 3 sections & 1 has been replaced with plexi.

To start I am looking for someone within a couple hours of me to take her shell off and strap it down to a newer underbelly encompassing the motor, drivetrain, chassis, trannie, axles/tires/wheels etc.

She has a wheel base of 125” and large open fenders.

Need a reversed because the steering is in front of the front tires.

Thinking of going with a minimum Ford F450 diesel.

She runs now on her 318 Dodge Polysphere & the electrical appears to be all there so maybe a full motor/chassis replacement is the least of my worries.

If i can get a new windshield & tires/rims on her and drive to get her weighed, I believe we can solve the dmv registration hurdle.

I know she is probably a money pit-I am prepared for $15-20k but more than that and my hubs will leave me!

BTW, she has built in beer taps on one side so I have made a deal with the hubs that if I can invest in getting her roadworthy again, she can make the money back by renting her to festivals & weddings.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to have this cutie show up at their party with ice cold beer & wine?

Any help or advice or tell me to run?!?!

Thanks!
Diana
