    Maybe it's Smokey the Bear's camper.

    Back is sagging from the weight. Looks like a truck that was auctioned off as there are no decals on the door. I agree with Sjm9911, mileage would be hard to handle for any long trips.

    Actually, his name is "Smokey". Don't you remember the song?

    http://boyscouttrail.com/content/music/smokey.mp3

    Lyrics:
    With a Ranger's hat and shovel
    and a pair of dungarees,
    you will find him in the forest
    always sniffin' at the breeze.
    People stop and pay attention
    when he tells 'em to beware,
    'cause ev'rybody knows that
    he's the Fire Prevention Bear.

    Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear.
    Prowlin' and a growlin' and a sniffin' the air.
    He can find a fire before it starts to flame.
    That's why they call him Smokey,
    That was how he got his name.

    You can take a tip from Smokey
    that there's nothin' like a tree.
    'cause they're good for kids to climb in
    and they're beautiful to see,
    you just have to look around you
    and you'll find it's not a joke,
    to see what you'd be missin'
    if they all went up in smoke.

    You can camp upon his doorstep
    and he'll make you feel at home;
    You can run and hunt and ramble
    anywhere you care to roam.
    He will let you take his honey
    and pretend he's not so smart,
    but don't you harm his trees
    for he's a Ranger in his heart.

    If you've ever seen the forest
    when a fire is running wild,
    and you love the things within it
    like a mother loves her child,
    then you know why Smokey tells you
    when he sees you passing through,
    'Remember...please be careful....
    its the least that you can do.'

    o_O In 1952, Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins wrote the popular anthem that would launch a continuous debate about Smokey’s name. To maintain the rhythm of the song, they added “the” between “Smokey” and “Bear.” Due to the song’s popularity, Smokey Bear has been called “Smokey the Bear” by many adoring fans, but, in actuality, his name never changed. He’s still Smokey Bear.
