Homebuilt Camper From 1935 – Built For $85, Carried Family Of Nine 30,000 Miles All Over The country

Pickup Camper 1935 1929 Chevy truck

Ah, the good old days, when Dad spent his weekends for five months building a camper on the back of a 1929 Chevy truck. $85 dollars worth of materials and parts, and when it was done, he piled Mom and the seven kids into it and hit the road. The first trip was cross-country: 3200 miles in seven days, and the kids never fought once. And they went on to rack up over 30,000 miles in the “Silver Bullet”. Now that was a Dad.
