I find it quite ugly but it's got to be roomy with all of that bulk. It's fiberglass and sitting on a Dodge Dakota. I want one! I probably won't be able to afford it, though, if it is new. My camper is a 1972.

You are absolutely right - just causing some thread topic drift here. I would also like to see the inside of the one in #1 post.

Yup me to, but I think someone needs to ID the manufacture of it first!

As it has no labels on it makes me wonder if its a one off - someone did some modifications on a old Scamp?

Dave was it painted or all gelcoat?

It was gel coat Carol. I looked all over it for a builders name, no luck. You can see from the rear view pic a little of the inside but I didn't want to take any closer without the owners OK. I was impressed with it, LP refer, sink, solar panel(s) on the roof and a nice layout too. Maybe they'll be back through here sometime.

I'm sticking with "it's a prototype". If no one has ever seen or heard of it , and it looks professional, why else would a manufacturer take zero credit?

My bet is that someone did a great job of re-purposing a fibreglass liquid storage tank.

It actually looks like a propane tank on steroids.

I don't have a clue. Kinda neat looking though. It would be even better if it was an all-molded-towable

I like the way the shell curves to meet the truck's box sides. This provides a good mirror sight line. No need for the extended mirrors that are required for most campers.

Jim, that was my first thought. Interesting design though.

The mismatched/aged(?) shades of white on cover grills and various accessories, along with some of the odd custom-fitted flanges, make me think it's a one-of-a kind home-made job based on a large liquid storage tank similar to the one in the attached photo that I found just snooping around on Google for large plastic and fiberglass storage tanks. If so, I'm sure it was a fun project for the builder, and I'd love to see what they did on the inside....

The various hatches and vents are all OEM from the appliance manufacturers and come in varying shades of white, so they really aren't indicative of much at all.

I doubt very much that it's re-purposed tank as it looks purpose-built. Whether it's a factory prototype or a really well-done custom-fab home-built is still up for grabs. Either way, it's a pretty innovative design.

The fact that it is so tightly matched to the Dakota's size and shape (especially the braces that angle across the quarter windows) makes it seem like a one-off project to me as well. The Dakota is a bit of a tweener, size-wise, and out of production.
