Buy This Gargantuan Ford F-350 Six-Wheeler Motorhome and Get the Heck Out

It's $125,000, but then again, what isn't these days?

If you want to spend a lot of money on an off-road RV, there are plenty of options—too many, if I’m honest. Name your six- or seven-figure price and there’s sure to be a rig for you. The problem with most of these machines, price notwithstanding, is they’re all alike; it’s what happens when you try to squeeze the same luxury home amenities into a rolling platform that can cross the Rockies on pavement or dirt. And while you can call this 1993 Ford F-350 six-wheeler built by Revcon a lot of things, it’s no cookie-cutter motorhome. Whether or not that’s enough to justify the $125,000 asking price is up to you.

Revcon built around 70 of these Trailblazers back in the day and sold them for roughly $180,000 in 1992. That’s nearly $403,000 in today’s money, so if you look at it that way, this one for sale in Chicago is a bargain. They were billed as the world’s only all-terrain motorcoaches, though it’s important to note that they’re only four-wheel drive, not six-wheel drive—those back wheels ride on a tag axle. They’re still necessary because this behemoth probably weighs the same as a school bus. Sure, the camper body is made of aluminum, but the truck is 30 feet long, 10 feet 6 inches tall, and 8 feet wide.

Regardless, it’s one of the best examples still left today. There are only 30,xxx miles on the odometer, which I promise is nothing for the 460-cubic-inch V8 under the hood. The interior seems to be in super shape as well, with the listing mentioning new floors, a new kitchen countertop, and an induction cooktop. There’s also a ton of onboard power thanks to a 3,000-watt inverter, 2,300 watts of solar, and 680 amp-hours worth of lithium-ion batteries, so there’s more than enough juice to power the mini-split HVAC and Starlink.

Even though there aren’t many of these left, I see them online pretty often. I imagine that’s because every time someone sees them on the road, they snap a picture and post it. You’d have to be OK with getting all the attention because there’s no way to escape the public eye unless you go way, way out.

Maybe that’s the move, though. Buy this thing, look into some nature-based learning curriculum for your kiddos, and hit the desert (or the forest, or the arctic tundra). I think I could probably sell my wife on it if I use that pitch.
