Re: Pictures of 1960-66 campers please

All that picture needs is a couple of squirrels checking out the camper and sharing a blunt. Great work!

Although close, the two campers have different windows and one has a back bumper. One also has 64 emblems and the other has none. Pretty cool pics though.

Yeah, I dig the entry door on the side. Kind of unusual, in my experience.

Re: Pictures of 1960-66 campers please

Well, we did it! This past weekend we bought and loaded up a 1967 Teardrop brand slide-in camper for Big Red. Fit like a glove on the first shot.
All it really needs is little TLC including exterior paint, a few light bulbs, fridge recharge, and we're good to go.
Last night we were all laughing and feeling like little kids in a new fort. Even had dinner in the thing, just sitting in the driveway. I tell ya, it's more fun than $500 should buy.

Color coordinating camper to truck was very popular back then. '64 C -20 when new.

Damn, that looks like new inside...great buy! I'm assuming you will repaint with a color match to the truck, looking forward to the finished pkg. Very cool!!

Re: Pictures of 1960-66 campers please

Long time watcher, first time writer. Lets see if this works. Attached are pictures I thought might be of interest. When I moved into my new house, it turned out my neighbor 2 blocks away had the same truck and camper as mine. His a 66 truck and 64 Camper, mine both 65. We both purchased them from the original owners...got some funny looks at shows when parked side by side. I sold the unit to buy the trailer and the Crewcab. The Crewcab has the original canopy from new.

Nice score! My wife and I do the same thing with our campers and trailers. The truck looks better now with a load and a story to tell.

Yes, they are of much interest, thanks for posting. RV's are the reason so many 3/4 tons are still around in such great shape. Original owners took pride in there rigs.

Not a good idea for a 1/2 ton, not a good idea for a 4X4 with a high center of gravity. Look for a 3/4 ton Custom Camper.

Below I photo-shopped a semi-local CL find onto Big Red just to see what it'd look like. Hmm, ... I need more images.
here's one

No kidding.
That's just about the most slide-in camper I have ever seen all in one truck at the same time.
The suspension makes it look like a piece of cake.
