The Vixen motor home was produced by the Vixen Motor Company, Inc., in Detroit, Michigan, from 1986 to 1989. There are three models; a BMW turbo-diesel powered lift top (the TD), a turbo-diesel eight-passenger limousine (the XC), and a General Motors gasoline-engined fixed-top (the SE). All are 21 feet long.
While the diesel engine may come from Bavaria and the transmission from France, much of the rest of the Vixens come from American car manufacturers. There are few unique parts on a Vixen which means that most parts are still available today.
The design was wind-tunnel tested until it reached a coefficient of drag of .29, better than most production sedans and even sports cars on the road at the time. That low cD coupled with light weight (5,100 pounds) and a fuel-efficient engine allows the TD model to reach 30 miles per gallon while the gasoline-engined SE hits 20 mpg.
The vehicle has an extremely loyal following, many of whom are members of the Vixen Owners' Association which provides technical support as well as social gatherings, called Prides, for its members.
