I’ve always rather liked these truck-chassis based Class C rigs, as compared to the van-based ones (like my Chinook). Why? Precisely for the reason the owner of this one is glad he has one now: much easier access to the engine compartment. Accessing the front of my Dodge is like working through a mail slot. These truck-based campers were of course prevalent before the van-based chassis mostly took over after about 1971 or so, although there were still some made later. And now I’m seeing some new ones again, using the Dodge medium-duty chassis with the Cummins engine. Good call.
