Those were quite common back in the day..Some of the local manufacturers like Security industries and Kit campers were ones we had...Easy to make an overnighter out of...

The camper is a conventional wood frame model with metal siding. I would guess it was built some time between 1965 and 1980. They are simple to build, and there were literally dozens of smallish manufacturers around, most of which no longer exist - and in the time before the internet.

The good news is: this is not rocket science once you understand the basic construction principles.

There are specialized rv junkyards and many of the more exotic parts like siding are available as well.
There are also a number of people around who restore old rvs as a hobby. Maybe one of them chimes in.

It looks like a fun project and I wish you success - and a lot of fun with your little camper!


That's very helpful, thank you! The design is extremely simple, but I like learning everything I can about my projects/things I pick up. I haven't spent much time in campers, and I'm only 27 so all of your info is much appreciated. I hope to have this thing in usable shape before spring!

I can't help with the mfg although as one reply said knowing the brand or mfg name won't be of any help with construction blue prints/or any tech info.
It is a slide in truck camper of that late '50s/'60s era.

I had a new '67 48" tall slide in with the interior layout just like it on a '67 chevy.
Exterior was a bit different with double doors on the rear. The mfg of the one I had went out of business around '80.

Later models came with 5' then 6' and 6' 6" ceiling heights till finally the TC industry gave us a 6'+ tall slide in with a over the cab bed.
