Looking for advice on transforming truck camper...

...into a small trailer. 

I'm selling my truck and buying a van, so I don't need the two camper projects I've gathered.  I only have one set of jacks, so if I get rid of the '68 Frolic, and keep the (approx) '70 Real-Lite, I was thinking of cutting off the cab-over bunk, and slicing off the two feet at the back that currently has no floor and fixing it up and attaching ti to a trailer frame. 

I could leave the two feet on the back, it'll have the trailer floor…

Vintage Truck Camper

If you've been following my Bluebird school bus conversion you know I have more installments to come.  I haven't stopped.  I just haven't had time to update.  Which I will do shortly.

But I thought I'd tell you about another project I've picked up that I will be working on at the same time.  I've always wanted a small camper that I could use for weekend trips and not have to take the…

The starting Point

Since joining this Vintage Camper, I have been urged to start my own blog and fill folks in on what the heck I'm doing in sunny south Florida with my Honor Built 8' slide in camper.

Hello my name is David, I live in my Honor Built "Aztec" camper, which I found on Craigslist last summer 2014, in Chilecothe, OH, that had been stored for almost 40 years in a well built barn. When I answered the ad for the camper, $500 asking price, I fell in love with it at first sight. All the cushions…

Vintage Yellowstone camper, and metal art.

January 24, 2015

I began to write this blog so I can share my experience of rebuilding my Vintage 60's Yellowstone Camper. My plan is to post videos and pictures of my progress.

One day as I was peacefully ejoying my quiet retired life, my son came home and decided we needed to clean out the garage! We ended up with a large pile of scrap we didn’t know what to do with. Chris got creative and started welding pieces together creating beautiful art. That looked pretty interesting…

How To Put Square Cabinets In A Round Bus

In this ongoing saga of my school bus conversion, my first choice for kitchen and over head cabinets was to make them. Older school buses have rounded roofs and stock cabinets are square. I figured I'd solve this problem right off by making the cabinets to fit.

The roof in older school buses was round, I'm told, for better roll over protection in the event…

1983 Coachman

This is the camper.  Not bad looking!  It really is a nice camper.  But as mentioned it needs some work.  I plan to remove and reseal each of the windows.  All have subtle leaks. 

I have to thank my Friend Kevin & Colleen for giving me this camper.  They had many good memories in it.  I'm honored to be able to restore it and get it back on…

Windows & Insulation

I put two basement thermo pane windows in the plywood walls where the original bus windows were. This required the cutting of a metal stud that supports the wall & roof of the bus. This isn't something I wanted to do as I didn't have access to a welder. I did install angle iron braces across the top of the window, supported them on either side with upright pieces of 2X2…

Prep work

I started this transformation by pulling all the old flooring up and sanding the floor. It was in relatively good condition so it didn't take long. There were, luckily, no holes to patch. I then painted the floor with chain link fence paint.

Here is a picture after the paint was put down. I did two coats.…

Newbie 1st Post: 1988 Dolphin

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the Site and wanted to introduce myself and our vintage rv.  We purchased (new to us) a 1988 27ft. motorhome and we are currently painting and fixing it up.  I look forward to sharing our photos as we work thru our remodeling, as well as enjoying looking at your photos and learning from you.

I've included a few photos of how the rv looked when we first brought her home.  Here she is:…
