The Decoliner

Looking like something out of 30’s comic or Flash Gordon, this is ones man’s vision of a futuristic mobile home from the 30’s/40’s, the ultimate land yacht. From concept to realisation the skill involved cannot be under estimated. Taking a humble 1973 GMC Motorhome due to its front wheel drove layout then combining it with a modified cab from a 1955 White COE and fabricating the whole structure and body by hand is no mean feat.
But add to it the flying open driving position on the roof with working controls and all the period details it’s just breath taking. The work Randy from Balstolene has undertaken is mesmerising, and apparently to be expected looking at the “club” he’s involved with (I recommend you look at other projects, although some will find their way on here)













I highly recommend you watch the youtube video below as it has lots of details on the construction etc as well as follow the link to the build thread.
