Interior Photos of our 1978 Foretravel Motorhome 33ft

Camping at Chatfield State Park 2010

Rear window decal
Bucket seat and Recliner with pullout table

Looking from midship toward front of coach. Pull down bunk was removed by Foretravel in 1985 and interior was completely redone by Foretravel at their factory in 1985.

The coach was named after the previous owners wife, Harriet.
A very true statement that we like to keep with us in this coach. Every obstacle known to man almost prevented us from having this coach.

The side of the eye-level oven makes great place to keep our funny magnets. Note the wetbar.
Looking into the spacious bathroom for such an old coach.
This coach included a real tub, not plastic and real bathroom sink, again, not plastic.
We like to keep ourselves reminded of where and who our dream coach came from. Hall just outside the bathroom and gigantic closets opposite.
The queen size bed with generator access and water tank access and water line access beneath. Night stands on both sides with the night stand on the right side of the bed created as a make up counter from the factory.
Looking from rear of coach toward front of coach. Note enourmous closets and chest of drawers with overhead storage everywhere.
Looking at the right side of the bed and built in make up counter with more night stand storage on both sides of the bed in addition to more overhead storage.
Looking at the rear of the coach and master suite. Note overhead storage and there is a "hidden" laundry shoot under the rear window.
Left side of rear bed. Note more storage for the left side of the bed as well.
Another shot of the bedroom suite. Note gaudy wall hangings on either side of the rear window picked up at a thrift store from about the same period as the coach.
Looking toward the rear of the coach. Lots of interior natural lighting provided by alot of windows, everywhere. Electric and fuse box located at the base of the bed.

Looking at the hallway of the coach with the bathroom on the opposite side. Note the original and in like new condition frig. Yes, it works like new as well.

Wet bar of the coach with working and original blender with icemaker and small pantry beneath.
Built in blender that works like brand new.

View of the wet bar attached to the kitchen area.
View of the kitchen cooking area including eye level oven, microwave, ice maker, blender and stove. Also note overhead storage everywhere.
Kitchen counter space is at an alltime premium in this 32yr old motorhome. Why they don't do this anymore, I'll never understand. Note the gigantic kitchen window. Again, another nice feature only found on vintage coaches. Why? I have no idea. This area also features a max air fan in the ceiling right above the kitchen. Note built in garbage can built into the counter top. So much more convenient.
A view of the entire kitchen. Plenty of storage, counter space and lighting provided by gigantic kitchen window and overhead vent/fan along with quite a few 12volt lights. Original woven blind in perfect condition.

Lazy boy recliner. A feature in every Foretravel Motorhome even to this very day. There was even one in their smallest motorhome. Nice.

Looking at a view of the coach from the front toward the rear. Couch doubles as a bed. Carpet replaced 4years ago, right before our purchase.
Looking at the front drivers area of the coach. Note original sun visors and like new dash with no tears, scratches or dings. New captains chairs during the remodel done by Foretravel in 1985.
Front dash windshield.
That reads 141,641 miles on the house. Apprx 5000 miles on the new engine, tires, drive train, transmission, suspension and brakes.
Dodge 440 Chassis with immaculate drivers area.
Coach monitor panel able to check all fluid levels as well as batter conditions, black and grey tanks, outside and inside temp and operation of the generator from the drivers seat. Note CB raido that also came standard on Foretravel.
My new CD stereo with remote control and input for SD cards as well as being able to attach my cell phone to it to play music from it as well as my computer. Birthday present from Carl. Previous stereo and speakers were from 1978. Note dash heater and AC control beneath that. Yes, both work like new.

Looking at the front of the coach from the entrance door. Note the curtains on all windows are pull cord track controlled. Installed at the Foretravel factory in 1985 along with the entirely new upholstery and removal of pulldown bunk all performed by the Foretravel Factory in 1985.
