1972 Field and Stream - sleeps 3-4 - $9950
Sacramento, CA 95818
This 1972 Field and Stream is a cute vintage camper with an updated interior. Our family has taken many trips in the past two years and its worked well for us. Now that our family is growing, it's time to pass it on for someone else to enjoy.
The camper is simple and easy to maintain. At 15 feet long, it is very maneuverable - when towing with our 6-cylinder Grand Cherokee, we can turn as tight as the Jeep will turn. There is a couch in the back that converts to a queen-sized bed, and a dinette in the front that converts to a full-size bed. The stove is an original Magic Chef 3-burner, and it works well. The sink is fed by a water system which can be used with campsite hookups, or the 20-gallon water tank under the front dinette seat. Electric can run from the battery via the included inverter, or via hookups as well. All lights are updated with LED bulbs, and there are several 110 and 12 volt outlets both front and rear. A Fantastic Fan with thermostat keeps things cool in the summer, and an included Vornado low-wattage heater keeps it plenty warm in the winter. A small TV with antenna and custom mount is also included.
We bought this camper restored in 2017, from a metal worker who created a very unique interior. The ceiling, front and rear walls are sheet metal, which reflects the light to make the camper very bright inside. It also allows the use of magnetic hooks to hang curtains and other useful items. The side walls are finished with barn wood, giving a nice rustic feel. The countertops, table, awning poles and stakes are all custom-made from metal and are extremely durable.
Since we purchased this camper, we have made many improvements. We replaced the front and rear cushions with custom mattress-quality memory foam, covered with custom Sunbrella covers. Mechanically, we had a new 3500 lb Dexter axle with electronic brakes installed, which makes the trailer very easy to tow over the passes. We put two new Nanco trailer tires on the axle, and have a third full-size spare. We also had the electrical updated by installing a 7-pin wiring harness to allow battery charging from the tow vehicle. The roof and windows were resealed in 2019, and the interior is dry.
