The Tiki Bago is one of Starlite’s fun and popular themed campers. All we are missing
is the ocean!
Styling is based on the great Tiki Bars of the 60’s... Think Trader Vic’s with dark
wood & bamboo everywhere.
The Tiki Bago sleeps up to six. In the rear of the coach is a full size bed to sleep
two, the dinette folds down to a ¾ full for two more, and a ¾ full size bed for two
more in the overhead bunk above the drivers seat. All bedding and towels (except
pool towels) are included.
Tiki’s kitchen has a stove with oven, sink and a refrigerator. Basic dishes and
cookware is included!
The Tiki Bago has a RV style restroom known as a wet bath... Shower, basin and RV
type toilet in one room. For guest wanting a bit more room the Starlite’s clean
and comfortable common area restrooms are just a few steps away.
It’s Party Time!
One of the fun features of the TikiBago is the included Tiki Bar, complete with a
hand crank blender! (Bring your own cocktails, booze not included)
Other outside amenities include a patio cover, picnic table, chairs, a fire ring
and an elevated grill, and a Limbo Bar... How low can you go?
History of the TikiBago
The TikiBago started life in 1973 as a Winnebago Brave. In the early 70’s Winnebago
Industries (Forest City, IO) revolutionized the motor home industry by developing
a unique construction that allowed motor homes to be built economically and changed
the RV world from trailers to motor homes. When Tiki was first purchased the interior
had been poorly painted... White latex paint was everywhere. While it was ruined
for restoration it did give the opportunity to create a custom interior that you
see today. The wood is leftover scraps from other restoration projects, you can
find birch, oak and ash panels incorporated into the paneling. It was one of the
most fun projects to date! Just an FYI for the mechanical types, the Tiki still
runs great with a big Dodge 440 Cu In motor with just over 50,000 miles, however
travel in it was not all that pleasant... It’s noisy, hot and drinks lots of gas!
