587 Vixen motorhomes were built by Vixen Motor Co., Pontiac, Michigan, between 1986 - 1989, when the company closed. Retail $40-$53k. 21-30 mpg. Three models: lift-top BMW diesel motor homes with 5 speed manual trans-axle, Fixed-top BMW diesel limos with 5 spd manual Trans-axle, and high-top GM V6 gas engine motor homes with four speed automatic Trans-axle. They have a 148" wheelbase and the wheels are 5" wider apart than standard automobiles. Empty weight is 5100#, GVW is 6700#

 

THE TURBO DIESEL VIXENS ARE 6'4" HIGH OUTSIDE WITH THE TOP DOWN, AND PARK IN A STANDARD GARAGE.  THEY HAVE A FULL SIZE DOUBLE BED PERMANENTLY MADE UP IN THE REAR,  SHOWER, FRESH WATER FLUSH TOILET, HEAT EXCHANGER SO ENGINE COOLANT HEATS FRESH HOT WATER WHEN ENGINE IS RUNNING, DIESEL FURNACE FOR HOT WATER AND INTERIOR CABIN WARMTH WHEN CAMPED, INVERTER THAT PRODUCES 1200 WATTS OF 110V ELECTRICITY FROM THE TWO DEEP CYCLE COACH BATTERIES, DOUBLE BASIN SINK, 4 CU FT REFRIGERATOR, MICROWAVE, DINETTE THAT MAKES INTO A BED FOR TWO, AIR SUSPENSION WITH FRONT AND REAR AIR COMPRESSORS TO MAINTAIN RIDE HEIGHT AND THAT CAN ALSO BE USED TO LEVEL UNIT IN CAMPGROUND, 4 SPEAKER STEREO SYSTEM, CLOSET AND STORAGE SPACES, DUAL HOLDING TANKS, 23.5 GAL FUEL TANK, TILT AND TELESCOPE WHEEL, CRUISE CONTROL, ELECTRIC MIRRORS. FUEL CONSUMPTION GIVES 29 MILES PER GALLON. POWER ROOF THAT RAISES TO GIVE 6'6" INSIDE HEADROOM WITH THE TOP UP. ALL HAVE DASH AC AND SOME HAVE 110V AC.

 

THE V-6 BUICK 3.8L GAS POWERED VIXENS HAVE A BUICK FOUR SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, A FIXED ROOF GIVING 6'4" HEADROOM. ROOF AIR AS WELL AS DASH AIR, GENERATOR, REAR DOUBLE BED, CONVERTIBLE COUCH THAT SLEEPS TWO, 4 CU FT REFRIGERATOR, MICROWAVE, AIR SUSPENSION, PROPANE STOVE AND FURNACE, QUITE A BIT OF STORAGE, TV ANTENNA. FUEL CONSUMPTION GENERALLY IS BETWEEN 19 AND 21 MPG.  ON BOTH THE DIESEL AND GAS POWERED UNITS THE FACTORY RECOMMENDS A MAXIMUM TOW WEIGHT OF 2000LBS.

 

ON  MY UNITS I HAVE MADE MODIFICATIONS THAT I AND OTHER OWNERS HAVE FOUND TO BE ESSENTIAL FOR COMFORT, SAFETY, OR TO PROLONG THE LIFE OF VARIOUS COMPONENTS. PROTEC ANTI FRICTION METAL TREATMENT IS ADDED TO THE ENGINE OIL, POWER STEERING AND TRANSMISSION OF EACH VIXEN. THIS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES WEAR OF ANY LUBRICATED MOVING PART. I ALSO USE THE PROTEC FUEL TREATMENT FOR EITHER THE GAS OR DIESEL ENGINES. THIS BOOSTS OCTANE (OR CETANE IN THE CASE OF THE DIESEL FUEL), CLEANS INJECTORS AS WELL AS REMOVES WATER CONDENSATION AND HELPS THE FUEL ATOMIZE INTO FINER PARTICLES FOR MORE POWER AND CLEANER BURNING.  I AM A LICENSED, BONDED CALIFORNIA CAR DEALER. BANK REFERENCES UPON REQUEST. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL. I DESCRIBE EACH VIXEN AS ACCURATELY AS I CAN BUT ALL VEHICLES ARE SOLD ON A "AS IS" BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTY.
