The growing popularity of campers and the uniqueness of the lot suggest that this motor home will leave for a record amount of money.
At the Leake auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, a unique camper will be sold on January 18, 2020. Its current owner, Lucas Luckner, acquired it at the time, wanting to restore and modernize, which was done.
The 1950 Westcraft Capistrano is 10 meters long and 2 meters high. He was the longest and rarest Westcraft camper. The restoration and modernization of the motor home was done by Stephen Butcher, a well-known expert in the field of car restoration.
The aim of the project was to create the perfect “restomode”, combining all the modern conveniences, but without compromising on the style – the 1930s Art Deco. All modern systems in the trailer are hidden behind panels and doors, and the camper himself looks vintage.
For example, the lights in the trailer emit the light of that cozy shade that was in use in the middle of the last century. Televisions, audio, USB ports and chargers are carefully hidden but easily accessible. A water heating system was also upgraded and a silent and highly efficient Duotherm remote-controlled heating and air conditioning system was added.
In detail the volume of work carried out over 11 years of restoration described in listing on the Dupont Registry website.
