Here's a cool old camper! .... Designed by Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky, the guy who designed the art deco beer trucks.

Here is a 39 Westcraft. Birch interior with bake-lite knobs. It's got the old pullman top (looks like a trolly). Spoke to the owner who would consider selling. But beware, for those who don't already know, these old trailers were not 'self-contained', if you know what I mean. Definately located off the grid.

As far as being self contained, I.E. a bathroom you can always add one. I added a bathtub to my scotty. I built it under a raise up bench. The plumbing is not to bad to put in,same as house pumbing except you have a reserve tank and dirty water tank.

Me and another fat guy under my homebuilt, self supporting awning at B' Ville. Noticed that others as well as myself have posted my teardrop on this thread, but not one with the awning. Would really like to find a Spartan like FlyinBrians to tow behind my '51 'Burb

Cool! I take it your brother and his wife own the Stardust (Starlight?) Classic Camper Park in Cannon City, Co. I was there just a couple of months ago. Great people and a great place to camp with your vintage camper, or in one of theirs!

This is our rig.. A '65 Airstream Globetrotter and '58 Lone Star Malibu aluminum ski boat. I just aquired the three door '72 Suburban project to rebuild as our tow vehicle.

Here is mine. Not old, but everybody thinks it is. I left the wood work and cabinetry a bit "rough" and spread some heavy dark varnish on it to make it look well seasoned







here is the album of the build photos, if anyone is interested.

Those are beautiful shots. Looks like a lot of fun. Where's the Chris Craft? IN the water? I didn't see it in the pictures.

That "bus" is wild! The top is pure Hudson stepdown. The overall size is a little baffling due to the various components utilized in the construction. I think that it is cool!

My daughters would say" Dad, that's f'ugly! Only you...."

Would love to see/learn more about this "creation". What is the location?

cool setup classicfins! Hows that Chrysler run? I have a 67 55hp, was my Grandpa's, has about 3 seasons of use. I had it on an old renken run about but I never could get it running reliably. It stranded me more then a few times
