|W250 With a Camper in Alaska|
I found this unique 1st generation W250 diesel sitting in the
ferry line at Ketchikan, AK. The camper was like none I had ever seen,
so I asked the owner if he had built it. He replied, apologetically, that
he had. The camper frame is welded boxed steel. The sides were insulated,
skinned inside with cabinet maker's plywood, and skinned outside with
aluminum sheeting. The windows, door, and interior fixtures were from
the marine suppliers. All of the cabinets, beds, and furniture were wood.
The owner has no need to apologize - this camper is very well built and
weather tight, and it will probably still be traveling long after the
stapled together commercial campers have fallen apart.
If this rig is yours, please send me some details and travel photos!
