very cool !
Yours too , doinbad
What does the inside look like?
The wife has not attacked it yet. I'm sure she will play house and get it dolled up
Here is ours...bought last Sept. off CL. It's a 1962 Mobil Scout. Still
working on it but we fixed it up some, got new tires & propane parts
and made it to Yellostone in early Oct. What a blast. Hope the pics work.
Here was mine I sold last year to get a big fifthwheel....
I kept something old with the new camper though
truck was not complete at the time of this photo but it was the first trip with the new camper
For any of you old enough to remember "Elm Motors" on Queens Blvd. in Elmhurst Queens NY in the early 60's they had THIS car and trailer on their lot around 1964 for sale. I was in the trailer and it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. You could sit in what was a cockpit over the gooseneck and look out while a chauffer was driving and speak to him on some sort of intercom.
Any plans to make the trailer match the truck?
Graham-Paige Blue Streak Coupe 1932 with Curtis Aerocar Land Yacht caravan trailer by Pics-from-Amsterdam, on Flickr
Too bad I just sold my Graham.
I am working on putting some black decals on it this spring....I can't find anywhere big enough to paint it.
That's a pretty cool tow rig, Buggy!!
Never seen one ! do you?
Been looking for an old camper to fix up and take to shows and stuff and today i saw an old shasta i believe with the wings. its in ruff shape painted camo and i can see its filled with trash my question is what should i offer? Its been sitting a long time by the looks of it so i consider it prolly a shell. im going to go ask about it after work i just dont want to overpay.
You can buy somewhat intact, restorable project ones for $500-$600 pretty commonly, so I wouldn't pay much for a really rough project one. But, the fins are actually valuable (they can be unbolted) as are the big "Shasta" emblems and if it has a title card, that's good too. If it has all of that stuff, you should be able to safely pay a couple hundred for it, and then even if you end up finding a better example, you can reuse those pieces or sell them and come out OK.
If it's really that rough, I doubt you'd be insulting anyone to offer them $100 for it, and you can always come up from there. Sometimes the camo'd out ones end up being Grandpa's cream-puff that got inherited and turned into a hunting shack by an ignorant redneck son, so you might have a good score under that ugly paint, good luck!
Painted the Frig & Stove from Brown to Seafoam. Wifey should get after new curtains today
Mine is a homemade teardrop i built two years ago.
My '53 Chevy truck with a retro styled 2013 White Water travel trailer, my dad owns an RV dealership & they sell these retro look campers.. www.parshallburgcampers.com in Michigan .. thought I'd share if anyone hasn't seen these before
Nice looking! Gary
68 International 345 v8 with 5 speed od. Rollalong slide in. Belonged to my parents. Was sold a while ago. Id like to find it.
I found this little winged Shasta for sale and jumped on it quick because it had a bathroom/shower and you don't see many of these little trailers with them.
Finding a clean bathroom on the road isn't always easy, and some campgrounds only have construction type porta johns (Yuck).
But before I could do anything with it we ended up with a vacation home and no longer needed it.
So, it's for sale. $1000. It needs a little cleaning up. It looks like the previous owner put putty on the roof. He said the fridge was new and the A/C worked but I've never used the camper or even tested anything.
Great job with the truck, but you blew it with the new 5th wheel. It would be legit towing a big Spartan or Westcraft. Friends don't let friends camp in big white boxes.
Hey that Alaskan is cool! Looks great on your truck.
I have some work to do 390 clark 5 speed
I've been toying with the idea of a air-stream fifth wheel project. The big white box was the wife's idea.....sometimes you have to let them win so they don't start taking away your toys.....
Anyone have a source for newly made old style windows? The modern windows blow the whole look.
Buggy your truck is so cool I didn't even notice the trailer!
Sniff around here http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/Windows_s/126.htm

Just used hardware.
Great looking setup. Those crewcab cornbinders were great. Way ahead of their time.
Here are a couple from down under, first and last pic are mine.
Hope you enjoy
How do you change a flat tire on the second last one?
