Someone please buy it.
The global pandemic still has a firm grip on the US, and that has made for some pretty interesting results in the motoring world. Namely, people have started buying more RVs. We here at CarBuzz don't recognize these land yachts as actual cars, but seeing as they are road legal, we have to respect their space on the road.
We've seen all kinds of weird recreational vehicles over the years, including RVs with their own built-in garages. These days getting into the RV game is as easy as buying a converted Ford Transit Cargo Van, but what if you want something that will not only draw the attention of passersby but also every cop in a 10-mile radius? Look no further.
This RV, described as a 'Convair 240 Airplane-RV Conversion with International Diesel Engine' is listed on Craigslist for a cool $27,995 and looks like it would make the perfect laboratory for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. The ad starts off by stating "great to park on your property as an AirBnB and take it out whenever you feel like it!" Sure, buddy.
This RV - which combines the torture of traveling by airplane with the mundanity of living out of an RV - consists of a 1979 Fleetwood Pace Arrow RV base with a fuselage of a Convair CV-240 crudely stuck to the top. Dubbed the 'Andromeda' after the Ethiopian princess of Greek mythology, this bulking monstrosity features an inboard jacuzzi and an open-top roof.
Built in the early 1980s by Tony Tosta and Jason Von Straussenburg, the Andromeda is registered with the state of California, albeit as a 1979 Pace Arrow motorhome and features sleeping space for four and a full kitchen, including a microwave and refrigerator. The cockpit still has some of the original airplane's controls and looks rather complicated to operate. According to the seller, this thing can manage an easy 65 mph thanks to an international diesel engine, and "could use a bit of refurbishment", but is otherwise in good shape. We do not recommend buying this thing (but we'd totally do a feature on it if you did).
