As you can see by the pictures this is truly a classic Toyota based camper. It was manufactured by Bonanza Travelers, Inc. in Elkhart, Indiana in November 1978 and I’ve heard that there were only 168 of them made.
This camper is only 6’8″ high with the top down so it fits through a standard height garage door. Also, since it is only 6’6″ wide (not including the mirrors) and 17’9″ long it fits in a normal garage or parking space. It was always used as daily driver more than as a camper. A six foot tall person can stand up straight in it with the top up.
It does not run but it did when it was parked over twenty years ago with 110,069 miles on the odometer. It is a great restoration project for anyone interested in it. Alternately the fiberglass shell can be moved to a newer vehicle. It has been stored indoors for all but two of the years it has been parked.
It is located in Royal, IL which is near the east edge of Champaign County about 17 miles east-northeast of the twin cities of Champaign and Urbana, IL. The owner of the building it is in now needs the space so I will give the camper to the first person who contacts me who appears to be able to give it a good home.
It can be seen by appointment only. Contact Jerry White, preferably via email (REDACTED), or by calling [REDACTED] and leaving a message.
