    Saw this FS on CL locally. Looks incredible from the pic. The patina of that rig is incredible. Does it look original or painted to you? Ad said 80's vintage. 00e0e_8gLrOC4TRNQ_600x450.jpg

    Looks good going by the picture, however looks can be deceiving.

    I agree, mid 60's maybe late 60's... Maybe an 80's attempt at retro but I doubt it.
    I would be more interested in it if it was indeed from the 60's in that condition.

    A real classic, less is more. I read where so many don't even use the water or stove anyway so this level of camper probably still appeals to many.

    I am not buying no stove and having propane tanks, It would of been outfitted with a stove more-so than a furnace especially seeing I don't see a battery up front.

    For sure mid 80s. Looks almost exactly like my starcraft stardust 24. Even has the same brackets fir the stove and table to cook and eat outside. Love the racks on the roof.
