Re: Era correct camper shell

Yes, I agree with you to try and find a vintage camper because a modern one will look weird. Kind of like the president dressing up like a punk rocker. But, have you ever done a craigslist search? Just do a "Search All of Craigslist" in your toolbar for a slide in camper and see what pops up around you. I think you might have a hard time finding a vintage slide in for a 6 foot bed. I dont know if they even made them and I have never seen a 6 foot bed walk-in camper. You might have to construct something yourself.

Re: Era correct camper shell

Yea they made them and I search all of Craigslist, Southeasttexas.com, forums for campers and even this forum, eBay, and local and out of state facebook for sale pages all day everyday... and I've turned to you guys for help. I've come across some great ones but they were beyond repair. Anyone know where I can find plans for a slide in?maybe something like this in the picture, I love the back lip similar to the back of the cab of my truck.

Re: Era correct camper shell

Oh, wait... Im sorry- you said "shell". A slide in is the bigger (walk-in) set up that extends over the bed rails and the shell is a lay on top bedrails like the one in your pic provided. That baby blue shell short bed trailer is sweet and very vintage. Is it still available I wonder. If I had room to park it, Id drive from SoCal right now to go get it!
