Roadtreking: The Ultra Van — a 110 HP beauty of a motorhome

From the bloggers at Roadtreking.

So there we were, cruising East on I-80 in Ohio when we passed this airplane-shaped vehicle with a strange saying stenciled across the back: “If Rocking When Parked, You are Witnessing a Miracle.”

As I passed and it showed up behind me in my side mirrors, I could see it was actually a motorhome. “Hello” was jauntily written across the front in yellow, framed between two bug-eyed headlights.

“What the heck was that,” I said, as Jennifer got a better view.

“A 1968 Ultra Van,” she said.

We Googled it. The first thing I noticed is that it is powered by a 110 HP Corvair engine. The Corvair. Remember that one? The Corvair  was actually both Jennifer’s and my first car. Ultra Vans were manufactured in Hutchinson, KS between 1966-69 and only 33o were made.
