So i i paid for this little camper problly bout a month ago but due to the weather i wasnt able to bring it home finally last night it came home. Got home about 10:30 so i left it hooked up until today when i could see to disconnect it from the blazer and take it out back with the JD. Its a 1985 Viking Spirit 1650 its not in bad shape at all.gallery_8613_418_216624.jpg

The camper looks good.  

 

Pottie buildings are nicer than camper ones, hands down.

Very nice camper. Hope you have many great adventures in it. Nothing like taking the family camping and spending quality time away from the world. Good Luck.

Nice. I have always been an ultra-light backpacker, but as time passes having a bed is coming very appealing. Right now my "camper" is a Hennessey hammock.

Good luck! I hope the weather gets better so you can get it opened up! For me I still like tent camping also, but... were I go salt water fishing they don't allow tent camping, you have to be in a self contained camper.

We enjoyed our pop-up for several years but then the wife wanted more convinces so we ended up getting a 28ft trailer.  We did that for a good number of years until her health made it very difficult to go camping.  :(   Hope you enjoy yours.
