Looks like a Chinook to me. Chinook makes good, solid, fiberglass motorhomes but overweight from the beginning on this chassis - check the CCC to see if it is overweight. Really cool vehicle - I love the look and I think gas mileage would be in the mid teens from what I remember. Toyota chassis were used on several small motorhomes for years until they pulled the ability to use their chassis because they were being built overweight and therefore they considered them unsafe. - Scamp also made a motorhome like this years ago.

A friend has a later Chinook built on a fpFord chassis. It's 24 foot and a very nice rig.

...they were real nice little campers that had real world problems...one of my Mothers co-workers had one he used as both a daily driver and camper...his comment to me was, they are fantastic camper vehicles...as long as you don't have to go up hill or around a curve...because the chassis was so lite for its intended purpose, they had problems with all the underneath running gear...still be nice camper to have for short, non-mountainous camping trips........

There was one of those for sale a few years back just down the road from us. Someone had mounted an air conditioner on top, didn't seal it well enough so it leaked, let it sit out in the woods for years (I think they used it as a hunting cabin at one time), and the interior all rotted and mildewed including the cab of the pickup. What a shame....

If you join this yahoo group you can learn more about it. They are focused on the mini truck campers including the vintage ones from Datsun and Toyota.
