Trade Class B for Fiberglass Travel Trailer

Moderator's note: OP indicates the Merry Miler HAS BEEN SOLD.

Hello, I have a 1983 Merry Miler Hightop Class B Camper Van ($3800) or a 1968 Kamp King Van-a-Home ($5000) I'm looking to trade small fiberglass travel trailer. If you'd be interested I can email you some pictures. Thanks, Michael 619-465-5144 or email me at pahlwest@yahoo.com

That it is - it's got less than 59k miles on it, a 307 with a powerglide tranny, and is on a 3/4 ton chassis. Considering the age, the interior is in great shape.

FWIW: The one with the "Snap & Nap" bed sticking out the back was most certainly built by AMERIGO, who also built the very fine 15' FGRV I am looking for.
IMHO: I think that one belongs in the RV Museum in Elkhart, IN.

Bob, it was built by McNamee Coach Corporation in South El Monte under their "Kamp King Koaches" division. I believe there were a few manufacturers building similar products back in the day. I've attached one of their flyers - Michael

WOW, That's great info.

It looks like Kamp King Kampers predates Amerigo and used the name "Snap and Nap" in the 60's. Perhaps Amerigo bought or licensed the designs from McNamee.
I do know that John Gardner (Gardner-Pacific and many, many, others) bought Amerigo in the very early 70's (c. 1971) to get the molded fiberglass technology they were using and started building the first Sunrader molded fiberglass campers in 1972. A few Sunrader campers were built with the "Snap and Nap" feature using that same trade name.

Now, for the ultimate camper, everyone that read this far, take a look at this link: (scroll down for the original ads.)

There seems to still be a few of these behemoths around.
Are we havin' fun yet?

Well Jojo, let's try this again. The "Quick Reply" function does not seem to be working as it should... at any rate, would you be interested in working out some sort of trade?

Been havin' fun for a couple of weeks now.... I've got a copy of that article. There is not a lot of info on the internet about Kamp King so even re-visiting these articles is good! That one pic on the right second from the bottom was as good as the Kamp King got! The top deck was accessed from the hinged top that contained the glass doors and the deck was strong enough to hold several people.
