About this RV

Thanks for checking out our 1978 Datsun Chinook Gazelle - This amazing fuel efficient vehicle is super rare. Only 6,000 Datsun Chinooks were made and only about 3,000 a year so this baby is special. It's the first year Datsun put Nissan motors in their vehicles. This baby cruises! Amazing adventure RV that will take you anywhere. Sleeps 2 in a dinette layout not recommended for people above 5’10” 178cm added over head area for a child or a dog. The sweet pop-top makes it extra roomy. There is tons of storage space available for your outdoor gear. We have furnished it with a sheet set, pillows, pillowcases, comforter and duvet cover, the bed folds out and is super cozy. We found this gem in excellent condition and plan to keep it that way. It's clean and very reliable. Take it for a week getaway, travel the coast visit Tillamook State Forest.

The Gazelle is equipped with a sink, propane stove, and refrigerator so you can cook anywhere. Wake up with a mug of coffee. The Chinook comes with a kettle, french press, mugs, single serving coffee, creamer and sugar. We also have plates, pan, pot with lid, cutting board, wine/bottle opener, utensils for eating and cooking. Spacious living area that converts into a bed. There are hookups for 120V electricity and a charger for your cell phone. There is a separate RV battery so you don't have to worry about the truck going dead. We also keep spare fluids, some tools and a first aid kit as well as a fire extinguisher on board. We can fill the water and propane will be full
