My “New” Vintage 1969 KIT Kamper Brochure

My “New” Vintage 1969 KIT Kamper Brochure

Howdy folks, by now, I’d wager most of you regular readers are familiar with the fact that I have a very old truck camper.


Most of you likely also appreciate the fact that finding brochures or any documentation of any kind of these things is nigh-impossible most of the time.


Well, luck shined on me as I managed to lay my hands on a mint 1969 Model Line brochure for KIT Kampers.


Sadly, I haven’t found one for 1974, yet, but I will keep looking.



If you find one on an auction or craigslist or something, somewhere, don’t hesitate to let me know. I really really badly want a brochure that my floor plan was included in, so at last I’ll be able to know for certain what its called and what all of the original tank capacities were.



Of all the models above, I would have actually loved to have found a KIT Kamper with the floor plan of that 11’er, the side entry would have been a treat and judging by the layout, the bathroom would have been bigger than the one I have now in my KIT.




Believe it or not, the old KIT plant in Caldwell, Idaho was still pumping out RVs (though no truck campers, sadly) up until 2008, when the company (then known as Extreme RVs) went belly up.


Sadly, they went out of business before I could visit there in October 2008, when I was in Fruitland, Idaho visiting my brother. I would have loved to have been able to drive my KIT up in front of her birth place for a reunion.

Awesome site AND upgrades!!! I really enjoyed reading your pages!! I'm a "make do" kind of guy myself; we'd get along GREAT!! I'm going to do the 'fridge fan upgrade, too. Do those fans blow away from the absorption fins?

Mine actually draw air over the fins and exhausts it out towards the door, which works really well at keeping the air even.

Try searching e-bay. I found and purchased several 1960s Mechanics Illustrated type magazines for home-built hydrofoil plans! Good luck and thanks for the tip on 'fridge fans!!
