Seller’s Description:

CELEBRITY OWNED, DANA PLATO the beautiful & Talented actress that played KIMBERLY DRUMMOND on the very popular 80's "WHATCHOO TALKIN BOUT WILLIS" T.V. show, DIFF'RENT STROKES, spent the last 4 months of her life traveling in, living in and sadly passing away in this motorhome. It has remained unused and in her family's possession since her passing. It was Winnebago's top of the line, biggest and best coach that year at 37 feet long with a tag axle. It is clean and in fair condition, with faded paint, stripes and needing t.l.c. inside and out. It runs and drives well but still has Dana's original tires, hoses and belts on it. You can find autographed pictures of Dana Plato for sale, but this is absolutely the MOST SUBSTANTIAL REMAINING MEMORABILIA she has left !!! TRULY UNIQUE AND 1 OF A KIND !!! (Own the vehicle Dana enjoyed driving, her home, furniture, appliances and fixtures.)

Price: $45,000 obo

I'm thinking more like $3,000. Straight away it needs $2,000 in tires, complete overhaul of every rubber component on the engine and someone's got to fish out all the left over drugs before you get pulled over!

At best it's worth $10k! She was good on Different Strokes, but that doesn't make it worth anymore than a similar model.

As it sits it's worth $7k

First Class A I bought was a 1985 Elandan 32ft. I bought in 1988. It had a 454 chevy engine. Pretty nice RV as I recall, drove nice and rode nice. I remember the price being $32,000.00.

there is a sub-culture if memorabilia collectors who actually want ti buy muder hones and all manner of, what mist call, "twisted" items associated with death.

We here know the real valueof this rig BUT, out tgere could well be someone that perfers it over something nit associated with the sad fall & eventual death of a celebrity. There are obsessed "fans", ask Jodie Foster, with means to buy befire another one cones aking to snatch it awawy.

Interestingly Ebay has rules to block the sale if items like this. Anything associated with tragedy of recent vintage. You can still sell items of ecents like the Titanic. So argue it's a poor policy for what was once touted a America's last truely level field open narket selling venue.

That RV is creeoy vut, meh, if a person exists to buy ut, great for the seller.

Dana Plato? I had to look her up.

I doubt it would go for 45k even if it was owned by Elvis, Michael Jackson or any famous actor/person.

It's an 87 winnebago that needs restored.

She died in 1999. This coach has been sitting unused for the last 20 years? It even comes with all of the original hoses and belts and tires, that were on the coach when she died. Like that is a good thing. [emoticon]
Maybe you can make a fortune selling off the individual parts as being from the "death coach". Maybe it was the stuff in this coach that caused her to OD.
Her time has passed, and so has this RV.

The Pic using a wide angle lens makes it look 45 feet long. Remember, it is a 30 amp RV. 20 years of lot rot. probably worth 5k to 10k depending on the condition of the engine and chassis drivetrain. Doug
