Default OVERHEAD CAMPER

Going to look at an overhead camper today. It's cheaper than buying a class c, for one, but the thought of getting in my ride and leaving at the drop of a hat is nice. It would be great for races, towing my pontoon, or just traveling to vistit someone without having the need for 60 feet of parking. Also if I go by myself because Robin is unable to attend, there is no heavy lifting(rear door). Still Keeping my 5th wheel for KAMP trips. Since my issues, Robin and I have been traveling and doing different things where a Kamper would be nice.
What are your thought my fellow RATZ?

My dad picked me up, and took me to see this Kamper, it is really nice. Worth every penny what he is asking for it. Now I just have to convince Master Robin.
Took lots of pics for her, and set up arrangements to let her see it Saturday morning.

Well, I am half a century years old. When ever I get my 64 done, it will be on there full time. But right now, my baby will be the hauler.

Sorry, I read your post more slowly. My eyes are a lil slow and drugged up. That Kamper would be a nice project for you. I would start with a shovel first with the layer of dirt I saw on the floor. Probably more TLC than anything else.

Robin liked the pictures, however I did get in trouble because I didn't take pictures of the cabinets. (how could I have been so stoopit)
Don't remind me this thread is useless without pics. They are coming when I OWN it. hopefully tomorrow.

She liked it well enough that we are going to look at it first thing Sat. morning. I called the guy today, and he said he would deliver it for me. (thank you sir)

It will be a nice edition to the arsenal of toys I have collected over the years with Robin. During boat season I only require 2 trucks now and not 3, to go to the lake.

It has black and gray tanks, shower, toilet, 4 burner stove, oven, generator, a/c, microwave, jacks, with hide away tie downs full queen bed, bumper with hitch extender brace and awning. Outside looks pretty good. Asking price of 2500. Had it all running when I looked at it.

Ordered some new tie downs for the 64, that way I can put the other ones on my BABY. The ones that came with the Kamper bolt on the frame of the 99, and the ones I just bought slide in the bed pockets of my 64. Perfect.
