At a city festival I saw one of these set up. I would have loved to get more pictures but I was holding up traffic. Definitely looked a little used but still one of the sleekest RVs made.

They are pretty sweet. I knew a guy that used to own one, but when he passed, his heirs liquidated it with his estate.

Wow. I can see turning that sucker into a Colonial Marines APV.

Saw this thread title and thought you were talking about one of these:

Forgive me... I just bought a Sako rifle last weekend so I guess that's where my brain has been this week.

FYI - the Vixen was a model of a Sako rifle from the 60s and 70s. They fetch decent $ these days.

It is nice, not crazy about the color but it does go with the period. Looks like an Atari fun bus. Wheel covers change from pic to pic.

PS I saw the same Vixen at the same festival last year. I guess the owners are vendors.

I'm not big on RV's, but if I ever did buy one, it'd be a Vixen for sure - up to 30mpg is a no brainer :biggrin:

I'd love to take a ride in one someday.

Here's a very clean looking example getting some strong interest over on eBay....

Never heard of those before, but it reminds me an awful lot of these AirStream RV's:

Are you kidding? I should ban you right now for saying that monstrosity looks half as good as a Vixen! I'm going to keep my eye on you mister!

I didn't say it looked like it, it reminds me of it. Mercedes based motorhome... smaller in proportions... wedge shape...
