Hello I'm new to the site. A bit about me...
I knew the woodstove thing would get some attention on here...lol
well,I'm 35 years old. I live in Alberta Canada.I have an old 1970 Scamper motorhome that is built on a 1970 Ford F-350 truck chassis with a 390 bigblock and C-6 transmission.It is a dual axle setup.It was made by Pre-Built Mfg. in Lethbridge Alberta I believe.
I've camped in his thing,lived in this thing and now continue to use it just for camping.
It's so hard to find information about the model I have.Hopefully someone on here can help and send me in the right direction.I'll post a picture of this redneck looking thing..lol
Since I was living in it (in the woods/mountains) I built a woodstove and will never own another camper without one! Some people think its unsafe etc but it is actually very safe if you build it right.
I love the looks I get when people camp by us and see the stove smouldering away...haha!
It is considered a class c motorhome on the registration.You can go from the cab right into the living area. I'll post some pics.She's pretty beat up now from all the back roads it see's but it is one fun unit to camp in.I have been debating about fixing it up or selling it and buying a newer larger camper.The size of it is nice though because you can get into these really cool camping area's....hard decision...
Hopefully some older people out there will remember seeing one of these and chime in and post pics etc if possible.
This looks like a really great site and I've been having fun reading all the stories about people "full timing" in there RV's.
I should put together something with a story and pictures of my two years of full time living in the Rocky mountains...all the places I stayed at were random camping areas and it was a really cool experience. The nights of
-40c in the winter and being inside and toasty warm are what makes it somewhat of a unique story I think...I have pictures of a couple of wolves standing about 15 yards from my camper...(they didn't expect anyone to be in that area lol)and have wolves howling on video (just sound)..had a blackbear come with in 10 feet of me while I was "renovating" the outside of the camper...
Anyway,now this is sounding like I'm advertising a book so I'll be on my way...
