'Landmark' Motorhome For Sale

Winnipeg Sun - Canada
It's not that often that you get the opportunity to purchase a landmark, especially one with cruise control.

For decades, the Dzogan family bungalow on Burrows Avenue has been home to the quintessential definition of the North American motorhome.

Mary Dzogan and her late husband Nick purchased the 1973 Starcraft Starcruiser, sculpted in Fibreglas, while vacationing in Florida in 1974. At the time, you could have probably fired a cannon through the lot of a motorhome dealership, as the U.S. was still reeling from the aftershocks of the OPEC oil embargos, and the lineups at gas stations just kept getting longer.

"Because it was a 28-footer, no one wanted to buy it," said Dzogan.

But they bought it, and enjoyed the heck out of it.

With only 70,000 original miles, the Starcruiser has remained in impressive condition. Close your eyes, walk inside, and open them quickly. Welcome to 1973. This is a time machine, finished in plenty of avocado green and dark paneling. It has all of the comforts of home, including a fridge, overhead oven, burners, and a roof-mounted air conditioning unit with plenty of chill. There's even 13 inches of black and white television to entertain you.
