Bought a project today 1991 camper, to replace my 1974 camp trailer.



It came with frame tie downs, but I have to make some brackets for my truck.

Nice!

I have always liked cab over pickup campers. I never have had one, but it seems like a motorhome but you can still use your pickup. The best of both worlds. 

Congratulations Robert. Great upgrade.

Once I get it home, I'm sure I'll find more to fix than, I found to negotiate price down with, but no water damage as far as I found and looks to be well cared for. You can tell, it's 27yrs old, but it's 17yrs newer than trailer and 20yrs newer than old cab over camper.

My newest truck is 96 F250 diesel, it handled camper fine, when I picked it up today. I didn't take off the plow, before picking it up, so with extra 800lbs hanging off front, it balanced pretty good, may have to add a block, to hit last leaf in back, sooner to keep it level.
