That rig certainly looks like a 50s travel trailer turned around and installed
on an old dodge van ,say about a 73 most likely . Im pretty sure that this
paticular camper is a homemade deal .The back of the van has been cutoff
behind the cab area ,the vintage of the trailer and the van are about 20 years apart Id say by the photo . the trailer is sitting on the vans old floor
and the tailights along the bottom of the van frame area are questionable at best . anyway it is what it is .

And then there's this one. At least they got the overhang on the right end.



My goodness, polish up that aluminum and, and, well, you've got a shiny old POC. I suppose in it's day it was, if nothing else, functional.

I was trying to see what was behind that neat kick-butt old Corvair that was so ugly and then realized it was the Corvair.

I ummm, sort of thought, ummm, that it was kinda neat looking......in a unique sort of way, of course. There didn't happen to be a for sale sign on it? Did you happen to get the phone number ?
