So, like I said when I opened this new little forum - Miller wants to go camping. The thing is, I'm not much of a camper or an outdoorsman - at all. But if the kid wants to go camping, I'm gonna make damn sure he goes camping. With that in mind, I figured I might as well get a vintage camper so that I can use it for all my Jalopy Journal events as well. Two birds with one stone... So the hunt began. Keep in my mind, I don't know my ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to these things. All I really know is that I DON'T want a huge project. I'd like to get the boy camping this summer so a full build is absolutely out of the question. But I'm not afraid of a little work and I'd really like to get Miller out in the shop doing some wood working too... So what I'd like to find is something with really solid bones, no leaks, and a decent look to it. Here is my first find: It's a 1957 ElJay... and I absolutely love it. It's almost exactly what I'm looking for... I found it on craigslist in Colorado and started negotiating soon after. It sold before I could reach an agreement with the owner. I think he got $12k for it. So the hunt continues. I've already got another in the crosshairs, but I don't want to post it just yet as I don't want to jinx the deal. If and when it happens, I'll update this thread.
