SOLD - 13' u-haul camper=$4500

I am very reluctantly putting our 1984 U-haul up for sale. It is the 13 foot model. I have made some changes to the original interior and two changes to the exterior. I have also completely separated the 110volt system and the 12volt system. The main reason being that if you are in a campground setting with electricity, then you can use the 110 system: lights, small refrigerator, small air conditioner, small microwave, a flat wall mounted (in this case under the bed) electric heater, etc. But I also have it set up where if you are dry camping with the 12volt system, it has a Fantastic Fan in the ceiling for ventilation with a Vent Cover over the fan to keep out rain, an Olympian 3000 BTU catalytic heater, 12" x 10" x 3 Ĺ", for heat (propane), a new Kyocera KC 50 watt/3 amp solar panel, with a Go Power GPM-30 solar regulator/ controller, a new group 29 RV deep cycle battery. I replaced all the overhead car type light bulbs with new PBC series LED lamps, it has a built-in radio/cd player, a CB system, and I also installed some cigarette type plug-ins for various 12volt type needs. I tried to make it as self-sufficient as possible. Kind of a 72 hour emergency pack on wheels, as well as for camping.

For the interior: I lowered the dining table to make a permanent bed in the back and then cut to fit a 6" memory foam pad for the mattress. I also used the same 6" memory foam for the small bed in the front. I still have the original u-haul foam cushions if one wanted to change it back to a table/bed. I know some owners have turned the back table/bed into a bed and then made the front bed into a small table. I removed the sink, the water holding tank and the small burner stove. That is all counter top space now. It has a propane connection, in the same location as the old stove, so someone could hook up say a coleman portable stove in its place. I did this primarily because I thought we needed counter top space more that the sink / stove. We have always done most, if not all our cooking and clean-up washing outside. A portable toilet is kept under the front bed. I built a wrap-around shelf over the dining/bed, in the back, for storage or storage containers.

For the exterior: I have added a small window air conditioner in the front of the camper at floor level. This is mounted in front of the camper but behind the propane tank. I added an exterior compartment door 12"x12" just to the left of the main front door, so as to have access to a storage compartment. Also, above the little storage compartment door I installed a 110v outlet for plug in lights or cooking items. Then slightly above that I installed an exterior light (12volt LED). Tires are about 2 years old, but with very little wear.

Donít get me wrong, this is not a perfect camper, it can still use some more work, and you can still add your own personal touches to make it complete. I live in Ozark, Arkansas, only about 3 miles from Interstate 40. Interstate 40 runs east and west across the country. We are in the western part of the state about 30 miles from Fort Smith, or about 40 miles from the Oklahoma border. I will be asking $4,500.Click image for larger version

This camper is now up for sale again. My father Chris Carlson passed away unexpectedly this week and we need to sell the camper to pay for funeral expenses. Nobody knows better than he did about what was done to this camper, cause he did every bit of it him self that's why I revived his old for sale thread with the complete description. Nothing has changed over the last 2 years with it, but I went ahead and took a few more pictures this afternoon to have current photos. He also just put brand new tires on it a month ago and didn't even have a chance to take it back out. Price is $4,500obo If you have any question or are interested, the best way to contact is call/text me @ (479)213-1437.
