Our Vintage Camper
We found this beauty on Craigslist after literally hundreds of searches and contacts. Vintage campers tend to be pretty rare for purchase because they are usually laying out in somebody's back yard or in a field somewhere rotting away (insert tear here), but many people are starting to really love restoring these, so hopefully more people will be willing to part with them for a good renovation - Save the Campers! You can see some pretty cool one's here. Ours is a Shasta camper, which rolled onto the market in the 1940's, and is widely recognized for its wings. We love our blue wings, and even though they'll probably be a different color once we're all done, we're happy they are intact and ready for some love.
After some months of research, we found that ours is more than likely a 1966 Shasta. We were unable to find one of these locally, so we headed up to Georgia near Atlanta to pick her up. We did as much research as possible, and for her age she's hanging in there, but we did have to get some new tires on the way home because we weren't sure we'd make it. Once home, we noticed half the wall was hanging off, ha! Thank God we made it. Needless to say, she's going to need a lot of love to get in working condition.
