The Cayo MOTOVATOR is a Class C Fully Contained Motorhome. Only 600 were made making them quite rare especially in this condition. Available in 20- and 22-toot models, the Motovator featured an anodized aluminum shell [sporting a 13-panel rear cap design so familiar to owners of mid-'50s Airstream trailers] and metal framing which allowed the mini-motorhome to maintain its structural integrity. These units were produced with a lifetime warranty from the factory.

Originally available on a Dodge one-ton chassis with a choice of a 360 cid or 318 cid Dodge, 350 CID Chevy or 302 CiD Ford V-8 engine, the Cayo carried a dry weight of 8,245 pounds [20-foot model]. The spacious interior [6 feet, 8 inches, floor to ceiling and 7 feet, 7 inches wall-to-wall] was fitted with most conveniences then available, including maple hardwoods, a dual-battery charging system with 30-amp converter, 22,000 BTU forced-air gas heating system and sizable 5 cubic-foot refrigerator. Options included an auxiliary gas tank, 2.5Kw AC generator, roof rack and ladder, Therma San waste incinerator, water purifier and 10,000 BTU roof-mounted air conditioner [which raised the height to nearly 10 feet]. The 52-inch cabover configuration offered sleeping arrangements for four.

This is an ALL ORIGINAL and COMPLETE rig that is in excellent condition. The aluminum exterior skin is in excellent condition. It has a dry weight of approx. 8,245 lbs according to factory specs.

This 1974 20ft Cayo MOTOVATOR has a Seating/Sleeping configuration of (1) Convertible Cafe-Style lounge and (1) cabover full bed over the cab. It also has plenty of storage, a kitchenette with nice original sink, (3) Burner stovetop, and a nice bath with shower in the center compartment. The 20ft size is a perfect size for easy maneuverability and is well suited for family vacations or weekend excursions.
