The early 1970s were the zenith of future-forward campers and RVs, when independent builders and major manufacturers alike sent suburbia to the wilderness. The Rectrans Discoverer is a perfect example of existung truck technology matched with dope-induced styling.
The 1973 Rectrans Discoverer 25 is a Class A motorhome. Just 1,875 of these made, and very few are still on the road. Rectrans motorhomes were designed by Larry Shinoda in the early 1970s, following the 1968 Mako Shark Corvette and 1970 Boss 302.
Power is courtesy of a Chrysler 413 big block with a Loadflite transmission, on a M300 Chrysler chassis. This example for sale on Craigslist has just 96K miles.
Inside has beds for 5 people, dining table, kitchen, and a bathroom.
It’s a perfect way to indulge your Mopar collecting bug, and keep the family happy all summer.
