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

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

  1. I picked this one up last week on my lunch break. It's a 1962 Terry 16' cab over. Overall it is a solid, mostly complete trailer, but right now I am repairing the floor at the entry from a leaky door.

    From the Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green. There will be a lot more pictures posted on the thread that is linked in my signature over the next few days.

    These guys were camped next to us. C5D4F06B-CF70-4988-8428-AC11DB59F05F.jpeg

    I pulled mine with the 40 for the first time last weekend. It worked great. I put air bags on the rear for overloads. It rides better with the camper on.

    Yes the house was built around 1932 and the camper is a 1967. They all keep me busy!

    When I went to pick up a cabinet from CL this was in the yard as well. It was gutted but I would love to have gotten it. I just don’t have the room.

    i bought this tiny flip top camper last year for i don't want to sleep on the floor in a tent anymore, i think, at the age of 50 i'm out of this stuff and have to do me a good sleep at the car meetings. it weighs something 485 pounds, no brakes, plain simple, but you can slide out a gas cooker, two chairs and a table. and at night you have a 6.2 x 4.6 ft bed, a dry floor and room enough for a friend or two and some clothes you can hang there.
    It is a dutch brand called 'Alpenkreuzer', built in 1965, means mountain cruiser. It was cheap and looks well used, but not junk. My '42 Pontiac will pull it easily, let's see next months on a Sweden roadtrip. Fits the car nicely and looks like a burger bun on wheels

    I don't want to derail this thread, but here goes anyway:

    My parents had an Appleby tent camper in the 70's. It was two wheeled trailer and the top unfolded into something like the one 40two posted above, except that there wasn't anything that went down to the ground. Both "lids" unfolded and with the tent up looked like the passenger side of 40two's above.

    b-t-w; these were manufactured by the Appleby boat company in Lebanon, Missouri.

    So my question is if anyone ever knows of one for sale I'd sure like to get my hands on one.

    Note: I've been searching RV websites and Craigslist and eBay and other places for several years to no avail. Every one I've found for sale is junk.

    Here are a couple of pix I lifted from the web:

    Our 1953 Happy Home camper. Most of it redone. Think i saved one side wall from total rebuild. We use it as a spare bedroom at our cabin on Flathead lake in Mt 20181114_181005[1].jpg 20180129_173425[1].jpg 20180614_102735[1].jpg 20180129_173425[1].jpg 20181114_181005[1].jpg 20181114_181005[1].jpg 20180129_173425[1].jpg 20180614_102735[1].jpg 20181021_181524[1].jpg 20181021_181524[1].jpg 20180614_102735[1].jpg
