Hi all,

 

I'm looking for your help in identifyng the model of this camper.

 

Seller does not remember model but year is 1983.

 

Hoping to put it on my 2006 Tundra- with modifications as needed (if it's managable).

 

Thanks in advance

Looks like an old Grandby.  Is it 8' long?

Sure looks like a Grandby. Measure the width to ensure it fits between your wheel wells.

Yeah, it's 8 ft long. Seems like it's unlikely it will fit. Thanks for the help

There are a few threads on narrowing the floor pack to fit newer pick up beds. It is doable if you are handy and the price is right.

Appreciate the feedback. Going to look at some of the narrowing and cut down threads.

I bought an old Granby and narrowed to fit a modern truck.. rather easy.. I saw that too (Denver).. been looking for another project..

My Build thread... dont think it was a 90's after all, more likely older..

FYI.. if you buy it, I would count on a pretty extensive rebuild if it has any funky smells. I was hoping to keep some of mine but turned out I had to gut the whole thing and start from scratch.. very happy with the outcome, but a lot of work.

Thanks!

I think I've decided it might be a bit much for me to bite off. 

Also can't get the seller to send interior pics or give me an idea of the canvas condition.

Guess he doesn't want to sell it that bad

Hard to imagine it being in good condition.. I have seen a few old ones and none were in good shape after 25 years..
