This is not mine. (I wish it were) I know that there is alot of people who want one of these. As the ad says this one could use some work but hey this gives someone a chance to build exactly what they want. I can go inspect it if someone is interested enough (it is about 2 hours away from me) looks like a good start to a fun build.

This one is serial # 0158, built in 6/76, owned by one of the guys in our Yahoo Chalet owners forum. He rescued it from a junkyard in Pocatello Idaho a few years ago. If you click on the photo link in my old post here (http://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/20673-A-Blazer-Chalet-on-Craigslist?p=391080#post391080) you can see what it looked like back then. As he notes in his ad, it has rust problems, those can be terminal in old Blazers, hence his not-too-optimistic price.
Not so far away to the east is another KSL.com ad for Chalet #1004, which will need reassembly: http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218&ad=20195929

How "long" are the bottom portions of these campers...they can't be much longer than 5 feet?

How "long" are the bottom portions of these campers...they can't be much longer than 5 feet?Though I've looked through my computer files on these, I can't find the spiffy drawing I created of all the interior floor area dimensions when I temporarily removed my closet. It's around somewhere....
Anyway, consider how these camper units overhang out back by about two feet, and then add the length of what you find in a standard Blazer of that vintage from the tailgate area to immediately behind the front seats. One description of these I read said the interiors were much more roomy than anyone expects.
