I think its a home built from somebody with above average skills. Maybe it was from a very short lived company even but it is not refined very well like a production product usualy is.

Wood framing is nothing new. Many cars where built that way. The MG's are a good example.


That MG has a lot of wood that the sheet metal is attached to to form the main cabin.

That camper having a wood under structure is unique but not an unheard of or unsound building technique. Wood after all is pound for pound stronger then steel. Just a matter of know how to build it. The desgn looks quite sound just very labor intensive compaired to what you can do with extruded aluminum ribs.

Looks like it needs more than TLC. There is a lot of decay in those wooden ribs. And the partitions have a lot of delamination in the plywood. My guess is that it would be an enormous undertaking and that is probably why the bid is currently $71.

However, it has a pleasing shape and would be a great conversation piece. But then again, so is the construction of the Hoover Dam!

Looks like it could have belonged to Jeff Foxworthy's old Publicity manager before he made it big.
