Brochure Outtake: 1969 Dodge D200 Crew Cab Pickup with Large Camper – No, Really Big Pickups Are Not A New Thing

It’s good to remind ourselves once in a while that big pickups are not strictly a recent phenomena. Yes, the numbers are much higher than they used to be, but then so are the incomes of a whole lot of Americans, and the resultant abilities to fulfill their automotive desires.

Back in 1964, one of our neighbors in Iowa City bought a new Dodge Crew Cab for just this purpose, to haul a camper around the country for the whole summer. It did seem huge at the time. And they still do, just not as much so.
