Response Rate: N/A

This 1977 Kent Cortez motor coach is a step into a time machine. It sits on 5 acres of secluded desert, yet is only 5 minutes from Joshua Tree Village and the Joshua Tree National Park. The Kent Cortez was a luxury liner in its day, famous as NASA's vehicle to shuttle the Apollo astronauts to the launch pad at Cape Canaveral. Celebrity owners included Vincent Price, among many devoted fans of this early motorhome. The "Clark Kent" was repainted in a patriotic color scheme by the previous owner, an electrical engineer and his wife who toured North America for their dream retirement. It still has the original, well preserved chocolate and orange shag upholstery. Welcome back to the groovy 70s! A perfect depiction of a desert campsite for those who appreciate nature and the self-reliant off-grid desert lifestyle. Guests have the motor coach and its 5 acres to themselves. A winding driveway leads to the private and secluded central area of the property where a circle provides plenty of parking. Easy access off the main highway, then about a half mile on a well trodden dirt road. The property has strong 4G data and voice signal reception with all the major carriers: Solar panels feed a battery bank and there are 12 volt and USB plugins for devices at the dinette booth. Stargazing is a popular pastime in this area, so an industrial sized double hammock pyramid was custom made for that purpose. The rocket stove serves as a primitive charcoal grill, fun for grilling up burgers or kabobs on the patio.
