FSJ Camper

While working I drove by this, stopped threw it in reverse, and took a good look, and couldnt believe what I was looking at, Looks like 60s Gladiator Dually Camper. It doesnt look too bad, I have to go back to that area soon, so I might stop by and see if theyd want to get rid of it, or at least get better pictures, anyone in the Houston area know anything about it?

If there is any chance you can swing back by and get more pics (including the VIN tag if the owner permits) these are very rare survivors. I only have a couple documented in the dually registry at: http://www.txfsja.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=16&sid=84b076fe155f7bf2abfc8472420 5ae0f

Thanks for posting!

They are six lug Bill. If anyone can get some good pics of this.... including the VIN tag... it would be great to record. I have only documented two survivors (dually) and one SRW chassis mounted camper... heard of a couple others... one was crushed as a mistake over a code violation/impound situation...

Ah Jason in the Mountains posted pics of if last fall, I think it was a custom jobby on a 1st gen waggy frame. Its up in Salida (far from me)

I never knew there was a Chassis version of the camper, very cool.

Woo man, I could never imagine ballin the jack on one of these on Wolf Creek... probably not many of them in CO for a reason
