It’s a common phrase, “such and such is the Cadillac of (blank).” Bicycles, refrigerators, toaster ovens, minivans – you name it, the comparison has been made.
This, too, is worthy of such a comparison, not because it’s the ‘standard of the world’ or of incredible luxury. Rather, it simply is a Cadillac that is now a motor home. At first glance it’s a bit odd, but dig deeper and there’s something quite homey about it. Capable of sleeping five, this unique Caddy camper is up for grabs on eBay.
According to the listing, this ’68 Cadillac went under the knife at the Superior Coach Company and emerged with a frankly well equipped living space at the rear. Step inside the Cadillac and you’ll find a sleeping loft, three-range stop top, sink, two kitchen counter tops, TV, refrigerator, bathroom and furnace. But the coolest feature has to be the quick access cockpit cut-out space, allowing occupants to zip from motor home to passenger seat in a flash.
The custom treatment would appear to end right at the raked windscreen, and under the hood lies a massive yet familiar sight – Cadillac’s hefty 472ci V8. Drive goes to the rear wheels through a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, though speed demons likely need not apply. The camping Caddy measures 22 feet long, seven feet wide, 10 feet tall, and weighs a significant 7,440 pounds.
The more I look at this, the more it makes complete sense. Not long ago we weren’t slaves to our cell phones and computer screens. We got out, hit the highway, and saw the world through our own eyes… not a liquid crystal display. The world could use more Cadillac campers.
