1970 Scamper Motorhome on Ford Chassis

anyone ever seen one of these?

They were built by Pre-Built Mfg. out of Lethbridge Alberta Canada as far as I know.Very well built!

Read more about it in the new comers section. Look under "woodstove in motorhome" lol...

P.S if anyone has seen one of these I like to here some stories.I've only ever seen one other like it on the road. What a red neck looking unit eh!?!

Wow, that's a classic, never knew that Scamper made anything motorized .

Actually, those "Redneck" units predate most of the van chassis motorhomes that most are more familiar with, Scamper wasn't the only company to produce them. Most times, I kinda lump them together with one company that was famous for them, Franklins.

These early motorhomes were the first step from Truck Camper to true motorhome.

Did you get a fair price? If so then nothing gained was nothing lost. But Scampers where certainly cool in their time!

You seriously need to get a temp gun and start searching for where you're shedding heat, because you shouldn't be losing that much that quickly. I've got 1" thick walls with very little insulation in them and even in 5-10F degree temps with gusting winds I wasn't losing heat that badly....
