           1972 Chevy G30 Beauville Balboa Motorhome

I purchased this vehicle 2 yrs ago from Arizona from an old man who loved it, but he hadn’t used in years. I renovated the interior and went thru all the camping equipment and prepared the van for the next owner. Everything is fresh and ready to go! This van is #877 of maybe 1000 ever built from 1968-1974 by Jensen Marine in Costa Mesa. It is said that there is about 50 in driving condition today! It’s all fiberglass so its light, doesn’t leak, rattle, or rust. You can see more of my campers on Instagram @balboamotorhomes and @freedomvessel. You will see several of my camper vans driving around Encinitas area. This one is a gem! It was fully renovated, as you can see!

 Needs (I am working on this week):

  • all propane appliances work, but when I went to fill propane Saturday, the gauge on the tank under the van started to leak propane, so I let it drain, so it is safe, but empty.

  • I would get new tires before a huge road trip, the tires now are good for around town

  • Horn not working, probably easy fix

  • For 50 yr old camper thats an easy "to do list”
