I threw this together over the past month. Not exactly vintage, but inspired by vintage..
that does it, I'm painting my Boler silver
I like it five-oh, it is a bedroom on wheels and a dry place to get in out of a passing shower. Built my hitch ,finally , and took mine
out for a neighborhood spin. Still gotta wire in the lights on the 55 but I am just about there.
The latest roadtrip. Zion
That is cool.
First time that I've seen matching car and caravan - and house and garage !
Awesome photo b-bop
^^^^^^Totally Awesome! You need to put that pic in the "Cool, Artsy Shots of Your Hotrod" thread.....
Awesome pic for sure! Amazing place, I was there last year (not in such a cool rig tho!)
Staying in Tahoe for a few days and came across this cool combo...it is being raffled off for charity.

Would kill to have the wagon, but the camper is a bit new looking for it...
I agree....the drapes don't match the carpet.

I saw this setup at the Carson rockabilly riot show last weekend. Good Sam safe ride does one of these raffles every year. Last year it was a 57 Chevy truck with a Shasta trailer. They haul it around to local places much of the year and sell raffle tickets.
My wife has a 1964 Cardinal that had to take apart and redo all wood, it' turning out real nice it was white a had yellow paint going to go back original except for the paint . going to paint it white with the yellow changed to the same blue as her 1967 olds 98 convertable LOL i know 1967 ain't hamb friendly but much of my stuff is also doing a 1970 AIRSTREAM also not hamb friendly she love the old campers so we are think about building some new retro small campers Butch
banjeaux bob, is that trailer just a pic you found on the web, or do you know the location?
B-Bop,I found it on the web. I believe it is in Europe...more than likely France.Ok,with a little help from GOOGLE ...here is the story....http://mondioramapinder60.skyrock.com/tags/fpjnXGvQcLa-Photos-d-epoque_7.html
That looks like circus equipment.
Thanks, and now to GOOGLE translate to understand what they are talking about
Haven't made it all the way through this thread but looking for ideas for a shell or cap for my 36 in the Avatar. Not finding much on the WWW. Want something light weight and at this point it seems modifying one made for a small pickup might be the route I'll have to go but was hoping for something more vintage looking. No windows except maybe in the back.
Hey rramjet. Search the google machine for images of "Steinbeck truck" and "Steve McQueen truck". Neither are in the style of your avatar but both are definitely very cool vintage designs.
Here is one for sale local to me, looks solid and a decent price
If you google ' vintage truck topper ' and choose images . There are many to stir your imagination.
1966 Falcon Travel Wagon with 1965 Mostard Yvonne
Just need a hitch!

What brand is that trailer? Size?
Its a 1984 Bigfoot 17.5 ft 1900lbs dry, has full bathroom and hot water.
^^^^Very good brand; fiberglass bodies and one piece roof. This one a rare, older example of their
travel trailer line. Most today are slide-in truck campers.
yes , they are not that rare in Canada but the older ones like mine are lighter than the newer versions. They are subject to delamination such as mine was and takes some rebonding..
