Factory equipt with 327 and manual 4 speed with heavy duty leaf sprung rear end. 327 is gone and a 1972 350 resides in its place.
50th truck too. Nice truck

I'd love to learn a little more on this one too Pete - have never seen any Trailering Special references in the 67-72 era. In the square years, it was RPO Z82. Z83 was the Deluxe Camper Special, another new thing is square years, which added a few goodies on top of the Basic Camper Special package of Z81, that did exist in our era as everyone is familiar with. But the graphic sure looks original in that pic. Wonder if it started as a dealer thing that grew into an RPO in the square era..

I dug briefly and unsuccessfully for any GM information re this package for the 72 model year. It seems that by 73 there was an organized Trailering Special package that could be had with emblems to boot. The decal here looked applied to original paint and use of the bowtie implies a GM sanctioned product Iíd think. Iíll keep my ear to the ground for any related info.

Re: CUSTOM CAMPERS lets see them!

One could buy cars with a towing package. Two things I recall were a larger radiator and lower rear gears. I didn't pay much attention to the trucks in those days ('70-'72).

Re: CUSTOM CAMPERS lets see them!

Sure glad you had the build sheet for documentation, otherwise you would have the nay sayers chime in. Yes, there were always some dealer promotions available during these years (certain colors with certain options) but very hard to document these special builds with standard GM literature. GMC had a special promotion.http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...=gmc+contender

Re: CUSTOM CAMPERS lets see them!

Hi all, I was wondering if anybody could identify this slide-in camper we had when I was a boy. My dad used to take us everywhere in it.

The truck was a red 1968. I'm guessing the slide-in camper came with it as the color schemes match.

Our slide-in camper looks a lot like the Winnebago's from that period, I've attached a couple pictures I found online from 1969.
