wow. There is one of those sitting in a pile of weeds down the street from me. Hasn't moved in the 7 years I have been here. I always thought it was a wierd chop job someone did.

Maybe I should offer the owner 20 bucks?

Talking

It says "Ambulance" above the windshield.

That brings back memories. When I was a senior in High School, I bought a 1954 Cadillac Hearse from a local rock band. They used it to haul their instruments to their gigs. I had grand plans for a camper...<sigh> It needed an engine transplant & I never got around to doing anything with it.

I have been inside that very camper! It is not quite as roomy as it looks, but it is very unique!

I went out there to look at a Eriba Puck he had for sale. That didn't work out.. but enough on that.

He did give me a complete tour of all his "Things". One could have spent days there and not see everything. That Cloud was definately the most unique item I saw.

He mostly has old airstreams, but he also has some of the one of a Kind items that most will only see in books.

The Kozy Kamp he has is virtually brand new, and he has a bunch of Ranger pop up carcasses he is trying to restore.

His 46 A.J.Higgins deserves a mention, I like the way he has it set up on the website with all the same era camping gear, very nicely done

His business is providing movie companies with period props. You should see his garage :-)

It has rows and rows of vintage camping equipment, all organized by type. You have to walk sideways in there the aisles are so narrow.

Nothing like going to the lantern library!
