After keeping my eyes open for something like it for about five years, I finally found this...and at the dollar store even, so plenty affordable.

And this is why I was looking for one of them:

Merry Christmas to me!

(Interestingly, the die-cast metal part is basically just the cab and a sort of backbone along the bottom of the toy, while the plastic part is the whole camper body. That struck me as an unusually realistic construction technique!)

You likely can't see it in the pictures, but the steering wheel is on the left side, so that would be not so great in Australia.

There is an additional entry door on the back of the unit that looks as though it would run afoul of the trailer hitch pin, though in real life the hitch pin would be relatively smaller. Evidently it's not based on any specific actual RV, but rather a rough imagined composite of several...and that's plenty good enough for my keychain.

As a matter of fact, I do, at least roughly speaking. It has a street price of about $1.00 (plus tax) these days in the original, unopened package. [emoticon]

cute as two buttons!


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.
