    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 2016-06-25_13.59.15.jpg out for a neighborhood spin. Still gotta wire in the lights on the 55 but I am just about there.

    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.

    banjeaux bob, is that trailer just a pic you found on the web, or do you know the location?

  20. 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.

    Its a 1984 Bigfoot 17.5 ft 1900lbs dry, has full bathroom and hot water.
     
  29. ^^^^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..
