1975? Dodge Travco 270, Olean, N.Y.

This 1975? Dodge Travco 270 (27-ft.-long) motor coach has been sitting on a side street in Olean for some time now. It was quite stylish in its time, especially when compared to the shoebox-shaped Winnebago, or especially the smaller Shasta Royal Land Yacht which is pictured below — ain’t it aerodynamic!

    Jim, my guess is that this beached whale will be sitting there for much, much longer as the owner likely has to float a line of credit just to fill up the tanks.

      I’m still amazed whenever I see a giant motorhome cruising down the thruway, especially when it’s towing something like a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Chevy Silverado. You can almost hear the gas getting sucked out of the tank!
