Saw this rig in Borrego Springs a couple weeks ago. Never did find the owner. No tags or data plate on it and it didn't look home built at all. No seams at all in the shell that I could see. Had BC plates on the truck. Any ideas?

Cool! Has a gypsy wagon vibe, just needs a wild paint job. And sitting on a mid-sized truck, so it must be fairly light, but well appointed, gauging by the various external doohickeys. Thanks for posting! I'll look forward to the ID...

A prototype, perhaps?

Reminded me of this restored shepherds' wagon I saw in Ketchum, Idaho:

I saw one of these a few months ago in a parking lot in Wisconsin.
It looked really well made and was very cool looking. I waited for a bit to see if the owner would come back (was hoping for a quick tour) but he did not show.
I did not find any badges or identifying stickers. (Badges, we don't need no stinking badges!) if you're old enough you'll get it,

Thanks for sharing that pic. IF I was to own a PU camper, THAT is the one I would want. Would like to see inside pics of it!

Is the only way to be sure I get updates to this thread to reply to it? ( I admit I only scoured this page for 30 seconds) maybe I will try "Rate this thread" next time.

That looks like a wood stove inside, also note the lid lifter hanging on the left.

Paul,
The picture of the interior, is the interior of the shepherds wagon, not the camper.

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?
