A Hot Rod Motorhome with a Retro Feel

People probably don’t associate motorhomes with the SEMA show, a high-performance car and truck showcase that was held in November, but tucked away in a corner was something cool. Creative Mobile Interiors restored a 1972 Chevrolet C30 motorhome and called it ReRun. 

The machine started life as a Mitchell-converted C30 camper, but it was in bad shape when the folks at Creative Mobile Interiors found it. The crew initially planned to keep the original exterior and overhaul the interior. When stripping out the cabin, however, the team found that the walls suffered extensive dry rot, so they spent 2,200 man-hours building a custom, aluminum exterior and an impressive living space to match.

The exterior is now finished in a Hulk shade of green with silver accents. The color scheme takes cues from vintage campers but maintains a modern style.

On the inside, the upholstery matches the outside. For entertainment, there’s a TV, and you can enjoy your LPs with the wall-mounted record player. A built-in four-kilowatt generator provides electricity, and custom skylights with domed tops let in natural light. There’s a kitchenette for food preparation and a full bathroom. When the time comes to sleep, a queen bed sits in the alcove above the driver’s compartment.

Under the hood, the original 402-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) Chevy big block V8 was bored .030” by Creative Mobile Interiors. The engine’s internals now include domed pistons, and fuel injection replaces the original carb. The factory four-speed manual transmission is still in place, but it undergoes a hydraulic clutch conversion.

This machine shows what Creative Mobile Interiors can do, but if you want it, the owner throws out a price of $250,000 in the video above.
