    Canvas is a lot cheaper than aluminum, foam, glass and assembly.

    I had one just like the one shown, for quite awhile then sold it and bought a newer one with a slide.
    Nice units and I kick myself for getting rid of it.

    You raise the roof and slide out the beds and put up the walls on beds.

    I hope to someday come across someone with some knowledge on this camper. It turns heads everywhere I take it, but I have yet to find anyone with any knowledge on these. It has a few things unique to it.

    I've never seen one of those before. Cool rig.
    Seems like your A/C would take a beating there. Do you have a hard cover for it when you travel?

    I haven't found anyone that has heard or has seen one of these campers. I have a torsion axle that's saging and it's looking like a total custom job to fix as they seem to be unique to the trailer.

    The AC was installed by a previous owner, but so far so good. I don't have a cover for it, but I do plan on eventually making one.....

    I think the torsion axle could be replaced fairly easily, just might have to get the right location for the spring perches.
    I don't know what it looks like underneath, but you may be able to put a regular leaf spring set up on there.
