Have been looking for a long time and found a piece of history for a camper.
I spent a long time thinking about egg campers and it seemed the hit on the fuel economy of my small tow vehicle...a Volvo 240 would be the same as a slide in camper for my pickup truck and I could still tow a boat behind that.
So I have been looking at slide in campers. My favorite is the Bigfoot
10.6E. I found one and the the owner decided to keep it. It was just as well as I could not afford it, even though it was a good price. At the same time I found an aluminum camper with aluminum framing. It is 45 years old and had a hole in the roof which let water into the back. It had fallen off one of the two saw horses it was on, so the damage is restricted to the back by the door.
In any event, the price was right...$425 and I ordered some tie downs and had planned to pick it up Sunday. Unfortunately one of the four tie downs does not fit because of an aftermarket fuel tank on my truck.
What I like about it, is it seems like enough space for me and the dog, and has room for a few more if needed. I have no idea if the appliances work. The stove looks good. The water heater is rebuild able or replaceable--it might still work. The fridge
looks like it might work. The furnace
looks bad The upholstery looks good. It needs new wiring, insulation, new plumbing, and some structural repairs. I am thinking about putting in a marine diesel heater, since my truck is a diesel, but I Iike the idea of a tiny wood stove also. I have a couple of solar
panels that I traded for. I plane to make it a boondocker out of it.
I plan to make it functional for the short term and in the long term, I'd like to gut it and make it like new.
I am perhaps in the wrong forum but I like this group and hope you will indulge me.
