My home built, rescued from a church after it failed a state police inspection. Did some mechanical work then bought an old aluminum camper (not as bad as the one in first post) unscrewed the walls and took the insides out for my camper. Sold
the scrap aluminum and trailer for more than I paid by a few bucks.
Slept 9, has shower, toilet, microwave
, storage up the wazoo, 90 gallon water capacity and got 6 mpg loaded or empty. Had a big engine and a really low 1st gear. That Colorado trip did about 7 passes over 10,000 feet. Slowly (both up and down) but did them. Wolf Creek was the most fun, dear wife was a having kittens. There was also a little dirt route between Gunnison and Buena Vista was pretty nice too. Smartest thing I did was install a second window washer tank to spray water on the radiator for those long climbs. :-)
