* a 3/4 ton truck is best but some folks do carry these in upgraded 1/2 trucks. The main camper box that goes in the truck bed is 8 feet long and 4 feet wide (just like a sheet of plywood). The over cab section is 43 inches high, but that can be increased buy placing a basement or 2x4s under the camper box. I carried the camper on a 2005 Ford F250. I had to raise the box up three inches to clear the cab. I did this by building a Basement, 2x6 on their side. The additional space under the camper was used for storing folding chairs, and water (was very useful).

CONDITION – The camper is in good condition. Everything works, (everything - even the propane fridge). The lower and upper sections are solid. There was some historic wood rot along the lower edge of the drivers side upper unit. That wood has been replaced and sealed. There are no signs of water damage on the interior wood panels.

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS - I will be posting additional photos on line or I can email more upon request. Also available are sketches with dimensions.

SOLAR OPTION - I can remove the solar equipment and AGM batteries and sell the camper for $6,500
