    Just bought this camper a bit over a week ago (05/24/2018). Cost $500. I bought it figuring it would be a project. Has some canvas issues that need repairing (I eventually plan to get all new canvas from Bear Creek - looks like it will cost $975 - but meanwhile I want to use it this summer), the water tank is missing and it is only plumbed for city water (I plan to replace the jury-rigged faucet with a Zebra dual action faucet that can either flow city water - with the lever all the way down - or pump water from the water tank with the lever lifted up and worked back-and-forth, and I need a 10-gallon tank to fit in the space where it belongs). The wiring need some work, too, so I can use a battery as well as 120v power. Right now it has been chopped so it will only operate the turn signals and markers, etc. Also need to make new privacy curtains, and get a 3-way fridge. But, it is a step up from a tent, and I can spread the costs over time.

    Welcome to the portal from N/W Fl Panhandle. Congrats on the NTU PUP. It doesn't look too bad on the outside, But for the price you can afford to spend a little money to "make it your own"
    Hoping you get it camping ready soon. Good Luck and Happy Camping

    Incidentally, the screens are all good. What may look like a ripped screen is a tinted vinyl sun shade that zips up on the big window. Started fixing that with clear gorilla tape.
