The price seems very reasonable consiidering it includes the truck.
this is another close up photo of the Avion...made by Cayo.

The story I have heard was Cayo Company was owned by two brothers that had a parting of the ways...therefore thae later Cayo name. Or this could be totally wrong.

The Cayo family were the original manufacturers of the Avion campers since the mid 50's. Some where around '70 the company was sold. One of the brothers retained the rights and design of the truck campers only ,but not the name. It was then marketed under the Cayo brand for a few more years. Avions and Cayo are basically the same except that the Cayo's would be more resent so some updates/changes were made.

That would be worth it just for parts . But then I would be dead and not have a chance to use them

Is yours a Cayo or Avion?

Mine is an Avion.
I came across some pics at the Avion Yahoo group of a 72 Cayo which looks to have the same layout except for the deeper holding tank area under the overhang........








Not sure if you can make out the Cayo badge on the front.
Also notice the formed aluminum piece at the front corners instead of the curved panel on the Avion.

On a side note I finally finished my windows, all new plexi, seals and gaskets .

(So, how's that in-transit sunroof access from the truck cab working out?)

Saw on another site that published weight was 1,860 on a C10 (no year or options given).
