"Thanks do you have any photos up of the outside of yours? The inside looks good. Because the aluminum is textured we brush painted the camper and you can't really see the brush marks. It did take several coats though."

The wife and I ought a 1961Cree Camper, in good shape, traveling for work now but going to restore this summer and travel out west to Idaho for a few weeks. We have always hiked and tent camped up to this point, however last year in Big Horn N.P. we camped in dense bear territory. Immediately my wife began the search for our camper.

Caravan (RV ing) in Australia

It was kinda neat to stay at their RV parks and meet the native Australians touring the coast as well! See the photos attached to my page.
