    Camper I built for my 1960 F-100 in 1973. Drove it from SLC to Mazatlan, Mexico. Spent all winter there and drove it to British Columbia in the spring, about 6000 miles total.

    One good story - when I was leaving, headed toward Del Rio, Texas, I was driving in a line of traffic doing about 30mph. A cop was standing in a turn-out and he waved me over to stop, then wrote me a ticket for speeding in a school zone. When I asked 'where's the school' he pointed to a building across a field maybe 200 yards away. He told me I had to wait until Monday to see the judge (this was Friday afternoon), or I could pay him right there!

    I've been back a couple of times since, but the closest I'll get again will be Old Town, San Diego.
     
  12. @mkebaird, that’s a pretty sweet camper you built. Look very well made!

    Thanks, it was a lot of fun. It was well built but heavy. I added air shocks, helped a lot at 90#. No construction screws then, it was mostly just nailed together. Main framework had bolts.

    Well... I guess I can add this distraction to the thread. We bought this from a friend down the road a few months ago. 1947 Kit Mfg. It needs a lot, but it is complete. It's had some weird things done to it during its life, but has a lot of rare features and is probably a pretty low production model. This was a bucket list item for us for camping with the kids. It will be awhile before we do a single thing to it, but I'm looking forward to it! I may have to strip the paint off first, though. Looks like a turd in the drive. HAHA!
