It is Beautiful! But I have to wonder why the front wasn't extended to the front of the cab? That would have provided for at least a single bed.

...or a nice storage pantry.

Mine is a bit better, still a bit small...



What you see on top is a roof for two beds that pops up with canvas sides.
Mine also overhangs the sides and rear which adds several more inches of living space inside.

My 1964 Fleetcraft has a front extension that is a bed above the dining table, which of course also makes a bed.

A single bed for a Hobbit!? LOL Even extended that camper would not be large enough for any adult up top. This isn't a big camper, its a small Corvair camper. Nice job on the resto. That camper top couldn't have been in that good of condition when you started?! Plenty of man hours put into that, for sure. Sweet little camper!
