Here is one too!

Here is one near our place. For $800 it's mine! Problem is, I don't have a truck with a 8 foot bed. What do you think.

For $800 I'd be leaving my tailgate down to make up the difference on the box length and be enjoying the heck out of it. That seems like a very good deal.

We saw one that looks a lot like the pictures in the first post east of Cottowood (AZ) when we were there for the 4CU rally. The only one I could find now on eBay is in Santa Cruz.

Another Avion camper on eBay

I know this is an old thread but I didnt want to start a new one...

Here's another Avion slide-in camper on ebay: eBay Motors: Avion truck camper vintage hunting camping antique rv (item 320239325664 end time Apr-19-08 15:46:05 PDT)

It looks pretty restorable, don't you think? I wonder if these can be polished?

My wife will be glad that our Chevy HD is a short bed. Otherwise, I'd be bidding on this one.

Dang, I wish we lived closer to Utah!

(Brad is very, very glad we do not live closer to UT!)

E Bay camper

Hi I've just joined today.That camper in Utah was listed in Craiges list this winter.I almost bought it but because of the heavy snows was unable to get there. Speaking with the seller it'll need some "tlc"but he said it's all there.
These campers are anodized and can't really be polished.Also I saw one where I live in Moab and decided I did not like the interior layout.It being too cramped with a shower and all. I ended up buying an old early 60's Colorado Coach camper with a cozy all realwood intreior for $200. Since I plan to use it for knocking around the boomdocks I won't worry about damaging it too much.
Good luck ED

These are pictures of a slide in that was for sale here last year. It's no longer parked where this picture was taken so I assume it's been sold.
If I remember correctly, the details on the fact sheet said it was a '67, needed an 8ft bed and the asking price was $3500.

The Avion is built with anodized aluminum. It will not polish to a mirror finish.

Alaskan Camper

I've always bee intriqued about the Alaskan Camper. It's an aluminum shell camper much like an Avion (and Airstream) that raises and lowers.

Camper, The Alaskan pickup truck camper RV sold by Alaskan Campers

What a nice looking rig!

What I like about the Alaskan pictures you posted is the service body on the truck. I'm hoping to get something like that when I get a truck for my Avion.

How about an insulated topper that would sleep two with minimal equipment ? Perhaps just AC and heat. Does anyone have plans or does anyone make such a thing?
