    thanks ..I know all about the chalet.. had one back when... but I also have a built blazer with a bundle of money and stuff in and it might be nice to dual purpose it with a removable camper (for the 10 times a year I want to wilderness camp and still be comfy
    Ill look at the chalet..thanks for the link

    I second the questions. Powermad, anything you can tell us about your camper is very appreciated. I really want to do that to my '78 for overnight campouts.

    Cool, I'd really like to get a manufacturer and model number. If you get it can you take some pics of the inside as well as how it mates to the front of the half cab? Is there a spacer required?

    I think there's a guy in town with one of those. I've seen it around a couple of times. I just don't know if he'd part with it.

    I have a camper like powermad's for sale. It does need some work but a camper for $300. Let me know if you're interested, and I can send photos. Let me know.
