Too cool!

Welcome to the forum and please post up some pics and any additional info you may have.

This certainly seems to be a rare one and there is limited info available at this point.

I will tell you all the mystery about the camper on the 1972 blazer & the GMC Model. I own one of these rare classics, that my father ordered brand new in the fall of 1971. He ordered a Hugger Orange 4WD K/5 Blazer from Griesbach Chevrolet in Hortonville, Wisconsin. This Camper was OKed From General Motors, and if you wanted a camper on the blazer ,the dealership would take your vehicle to Ronco Camper Company in Osseo, Minnesota and build the camper on the blazer. It was not meant to be taken off. You could get a door on the back or use your tailgate and have a fold up window ,like a topper. The Blazer I have has 63000 miles on it and is in very good condition considering is is a wisconsin vehicle. I will send pics soon. The 1977 Blazer Chalet was built right at the factory. The 1972 Model was taken from the dealerships to Minnesota, Including the Canadian built Blazers.
Here is one picture to start...Im working on the others

The K/5 was built on July 8, 1972 and was delivered to Griesbach Chevrolet on Sept 9, 1972. The total package cost with the camper
was $ 5500.00 with tax. I have the protecto-plate

Here is my 1972 Chevrolet K/5 Blazer, with the camper. It was built at The Ronco Camper Company in Osseo, Minnesota. I have the Protecto-plate and it was built on July-7-1972 and was delivered to Griesbach Chevrolet in Hortonville, Wisconsin. The cost was $ 5500 with tax with the camper. My Father ordered in new in the fall of 1971. Hugger Orange 350-V8 4WD I will have more pictures & info at a later date.

Hello, When I have new decals made I will have extras made. I will let you know what they cost when I take them to the designer. The will be exactly like the originals. There are one on each side and one in the front.. I will be takeing more pics of my rig this weekend. Have a good one, and glad to be assistance to anyone who has one of these great units. We need to stay in touch and help each other out with preserving these gems. Thanks, Paul P.S. That is 100% a Ronco built camper
