Even though it is advertised as such, this was not a '77...by 1977 the Shastas were built by Coachmen, and had the orange/brown striping. This would likely be about 1972 or '73, Stratoflyte model if memory serves me. This would have all the same framing techniques as the late-60's/early-70's models with the gold stripe finish design.
With the placement of the door behind the axles, it would have the rear bath/streetside kitchenette/curbside dinette layout with a huge living/sleeping area in the front. I understand your interest...

well, I dont know much about them, but in the 2 years I have been on here I have never heard anyone bash them for major reasons (other than the hidious 70's interior). from what I have seen they are about the same as the earlier versions I think.
I think they're about the same as well. Not really a vintage canned ham but they work for families and have some retro charm. The biggest drawback to 70s units is that they used a lot of MDF rather than real wood. It's really heavy and more so if wet...

I like it... who'd of thunk it? I don't think that's is a 77 either. They went "Daisey" then I think. You might not be in the "vintage can ham" club but you can be in my club. I'm in the Toaster club. And while I like the classics that so many here possess and labor over, I like the 70's campers too. I like the vintage green interior, but I grew up in this era as a boy..It's all about Retro Baby.. I got her new license plate the other day "71TOASTR"....Silly me, but I am having fun with it.
