    This Chalet is just the shell. No K5 Blazer truck under it.
    The interior items have all been removed are not available. The pop up top operates, and the canvas has mouse chew holes in it. One side window looks foggy.
    Delivery possible East coast area.
    Located in NC 28387 $450

    It came off a 1976 K5 (I took it off myself). I will take some pics....email me and I'll send pics to you. It is in my storage unit, and I have it on caster wheels. I bought the entire truck a number of years ago. Got rid of the truck and kept the Chalet. I have a camper trailer now and need the storage space. my email is in my profile. Happy to answer any questions.

    The problems with this Chalet were caused by:
    1.Racoons were in it for a while (ruined what was left of the
    interior and canvas).

    2.It had water dripping into it for years (broken glass in the K5),
    and the guy I bought the K5/Chalet from really let the interior
    deteriorate. When I got it, I had to chainsaw a small tree it
    had been sitting for so long.

    The fiberglass is OK. Not delaminated. The rear door has a
    wood core and feels flexy like the wood is rotted. But it is
    there, and could be restored.

    The mini windows at the front top are OK, not broken as I remember.
    The Chalet is wedged sideways into my storage unit and I couldnt
    see them that well when I took pics last Friday.

    LH side window is totally fogged but it is there.
    It definitely needs to be replaced. The window channel fuzz is shot
    on both side windows. The track is OK I am pretty sure.

    IMPORTANT:
    The floor in a Chalet is a chunk of plywood stuck to the
    fiberglass, so you are seperated from the K5s metal bed floor.
    This plywood was ROTTED out. So I cut that out with sawzall. So
    when you look into the interior, you see cut lines which are
    at about midpoint of the rear wheel well tub height. If you want
    the original floor configuration, you would need to replace it.
    I was going to use the K5 floor.

    I had planned to add some square tubing at the rear to compensate
    for for any potential bedside outflex, since the floor (for sure)
    added ridigity (and a lot of weight) to the K5.

    I have offroaded with a Chalet (my friends) in past years. These things
    are NOT light weight especially when loaded. I would notice that his K5 would sometimes
    appear to have a hobbyhorse motion when we drove across desert.
    So stock suspension (like his) won't handle it.

    I wonder how hard it would be to make it work on a first gen.
