I've been RVing for many many years since I was young. The first RV my family owned was a Streamliner, and from there on I was hooked.
I now own one of the first true land yachts. Its a 1978 Apollo 3300 1B. I'm restoring it as I go. It's all original, all the way down to the original welcome mat, which only says Apollo. It has the 440 Dodge and 727 transmission.
She has the original two-tone paint and hub caps to match and this baby is my love and I love the way people come up to me and say how nice she looks when I pull in.
The blue book says $9,000 to $12,000 and she worth every cent and she has never let me down and never will. I live in her year-round and would never trade.
I wish more people would restore these great Icons of an era gone bye. That's why I love RVing.
