Skip to the Rebuild: Clicky
What does everybody do once they finally start getting the things they've been dreaming of?? Start a build thread! Or at least something like it. There may not be so much "build" but at least pictures and mods and stuff. So here's mine!
About a month ago, I picked up a 2005 Ram 2500 Quad Cab Long Bed 6.9L Cummins. It is wonderful! As soon as we got it, the hunt for our perfect camper to mate with it began.
A little bit ago I started a thread asking about a Starcraft Pine Mountain 800 camper because we /really/ like the floor plan layout of it. Here is the thread.
Well, after visiting a few Popup dealers around Denver, and then a visit to Hallmark, where we had the pleasure of running into and meeting Gordon and Angela White, the publishers of Truck Camper Magazine, who were really helpful, we made an appointment to visit Coyote RV. We were NOT disappointed! They are WONDERFUL people!
Armed with a print out of the Pine Mountain 800 floor plan, we inquired about the possibilities of this being built for us. Expecting the worst, we got a surprising "Absolutely"! In fact, it's even better, we'll have a cassette toilet (hooray no black water tank!) and an additional bunk on top of the couch (which will also fold into a bed). Easily sleeping 4, maybe more in a pinch. The camper will have the really nifty aerodynamic front nose, AND won't stick out past the rear bumper of the truck!
Best yet, it will be delivered before middle of July this year! That's way faster than even a standard cookie cutter model from FWC! (I know because I called, they said late August at the soonest!)
I know that this thread is useless without pictures, but they will come as quick as I can get them. Hopefully I can get a few shots of the camper as it's being built too. For now, you'll have to go to my previously linked thread to see the floor plan and whatnot. I'll get a few of our truck maybe tomorrow.
Is it middle of July yet!!!
