Old Campers...Let's see what you got!

Discussion in 'The Antiquated' started by mctim64, Jun 4, 2009.

  1. I have noticed that a lot of guys have Classic campers and/or trailers, I just love my old Alaskan it's a '58 and goes great on my '58 F-100. I have noticed in following the story of the "Fordillac" that flynbrian48 has a very nice trailer to pull behind his Pontiac wagon, that's one now let's see what else is out there. :D

    Kool camper, Tim.. Mines not as kool, I have a 68 Teardrop 12 1/2 foot camper for my 70 Chev 3/4 ton truck my grandpa bought new. Looks pretty kool pulling my old 66 flatbottom, though. Should have taken pictures before I buried it in the shop...
  8. One of my friends has tons of that stuff, lots of aluminum trailers of all sizes, a couple vintage pop-ups - one with a semi-streamlined body like I've never seen before, has to be 50s or older. And then he has this thing with the face only a mother could love. It's supposed to be a factory conversion on a Chrysler frame. Aluminum body, of course someone gutted it in like the 70s to use for who knows what. But it's like a trailer that doesn't need the tow car -

    Hey that Alaskan is cool! Looks great on your truck. I don't think we'll be able to pull the Spartan behind the roadster, maybe a Mullins.:D

  13. Thanks! That set up of yours is the best. I love your "36 Special" with a nice touch of British with the MGB windscreen, certainly better than using Lucas electrics. :p

    Real cool. X2 on good thread. There's got to be more out there. Sure beats being in a hotel sleeping in a fuck stained bed wondering if anyone is eye-ballin your ride in the parking lot.

  20. Bubba, I like it! You bring up another question, how many guys use their campers for guest rooms when visitors come? I know I do.
  21. Nice shop Bubba, I like the '29 with the 302. Way cool!
  22. A friend out at El Mirage brought this one with him, I thought it very nice. :D

    This is a 1957 Ford, Gruman, Olsen Kurb Side. Converted to a camper sometime in the '70's judging by the orange shag carpet that was in it. It has a Mopar 413, pushbutton torqueflite with a 3 speed Brownie. If you like it I could be talked out of it.

  24. Here is my set up. The teardrop was homebuilt in 1949. I use it LOTS during the summer and have towed it over 15,000 miles in the 3 years I've owned it
