1977 American Clipper, 21

It has the original outside paint, and the original paneling inside. Some of the paneling has been replaced but it is a good match. We put in the dinette in place of two swivel chairs. Also has the flip sofa and overhead bed. Has leaked in the past but we've had it for 15 years and it has never leaked for us. We have kept it garaged. Just came back from a rainy 3 weeks in Canada and it was dry. The refrigerator does not work on 12 volt but does great on propane and 110. Coach AC is almost new however cab AC does not work. Tires have only about 4,000 miles on them. Real spare. She has 101,000 miles on her 440 engine.

  • No Smog Required

  • 88,000 Miles

  • Dodge 360

  • Rear Kitchen

  • Awning

  • New Tires

  • New Wheel Bearings

Only $2500 why? American Clippers are CLassics! But let's face it, most are 30+ years old and have lost their new car smell. All of them have leaked at one time or another, need minor tweaking and a little TLC. If you are handy (and I'm not) this can be a jewel in short order. Great for weekend getaways.
