    Werd, they were the bomb.

    I like how the Chalets had taillights on the camper body also.

    The two main companies that made Blazer campers of that style were Hallmark (ebay truck) and Four Wheel Campers. Both are out of Colorado. I had a Hallmark for years and loved it (also had a 4wc on a different truck). I beat the crap out of that blazer and never did any structural damage to it.

    I found a factory brochure for one of those on ebay and bought it in a heartbeat. What an oddball (and extremely cool) vehicle, and if only they had made a 3/4 or 1-ton Blazer.

    Oh, and it needed a toilet (which they could have added if the Blazer had a higher load capacity). Nowdays, with bigger alternators and batteries, a mini-microwave oven would have been a must.

    I think they lost money on every one of the few they sold, but what a four-wheeled treasure, and I do hope to own one someday.

    i thought Chalets were full top units, not popups like the one pictured in the Ebay auction above.

    I thought so too, but I just looked at my brochure, and they are also pop-ups.
