yes, a pop up. opened and closed the last time i tried. canvass is there but needs replacing.

never was a refrigerator. what looks like a refer is actually a cooler. The gas has been removed. the stove is there but on something this small i felt cooling outside would be smarter.

Definitely the same as a Campster.

Could you list the major work that it needs, to be usable again?

Thanks.

+ make cushions
+ make table
+ make drawers
+ put stove back, connect to tank outside

What else?

Thanks.

It's all mine now but I had to leave it in Oregon as I don't yet have a hitch installed on my car to pull it with. Great excuse to go back and enjoy the Oregon coast for a few extra days in a few weeks.

All the existing interior stuff will go to the dumpster except maybe the sink. Then in goes insulation and new cabinets as well as wiring, heater, floor covering, water tanks etc. Of course also I will sew up new material for the pop-top. It will also have an enclosed toilet area. In the bunk area on one side will be configured so it can be used low as the bed or raised up higher to create a desk with knee space. Some minor work needed for the exterior but over all it is in good shape on the outside. Fortunately I do have all the skills for the renovation project and even some of the materials. I will document the rebuild of the interior for the forum later on.

On my way back to Seattle I had stopped in at the Costco in Astoria, Oregon and they have 20 lb propane tanks for $25.00 and some change. So since there is no sales tax in Oregon one of those came home with me

Enjoyed doing business with you Joe, you made things easy for me, thanks again.

Way to go, KC! I see from your profile it is made by Trailswest. It appears now they made two models, the Campster and the Campmite. The shells appear identical. Wondering what the difference is- a more basic version perhaps, like the Hunter Compact I and II? The history of these little eggs and their variants, offshoots, and copycats is amazingly complex and, sadly, poorly documented.

Here are a couple of old threads a search turned up.

I hope you'll share pictures of the progress you make.

I'm curious how a remodel/renovation goes...

I suspect it is one and the same body shell mold with minor differences in how the interior was fitted out. Campmite could have been primarily created for use as a marketing campaign name based on emphasizing the very small size of the unit to generate some buyer excitement with the underlying model still being Campster. One could possibly find some old magazine advertising from that period to figure out the name variations.
