Last Call: Camping then and now

Smart Money: This 1972 Chevy Blazer model was the first Four Wheel Camper this NH couple owned, and maybe one of the first ever built! So when they were able to invest in another adventuremobile of course they chose a Front Dinette FWC Hawk Camper on a Chevy Silverado. ?? ————————————— #whatsoldisnewagain #fwc #fourwheelcampers #fwchawk #chevytruck #chevysilverado #chevyblazer #vintagecamper #truckcamper #adventuremobile #mainlineoverland #outfittersfortomorrowsexpedition

    Ah, Four-Wheel Pop-Up Campers. I was after one when I had the C1500 Long Bed, which turned out to be a bit of an advantage. Grandby models were available at reasonable prices simply because no one made a truck with a bed that big anymore. Even a 25 year old Grandby is still a sweet camper, if you have a 25 year old truck that can still handle it.

    I got thursdays off and spent over three hours fixing the brakes and changing to summer tires on the Toyota today. The Honda has always been the troublesome car when it came to brakes, so we just accepted that the Camry stops when we ask it to – and trusted mechanic’s judgement. So this newly tech inspected car had two front brakes that were basically inoperably. Both lower gliders were rusted into position, took me half an hour each to lubricate, hit, and insult them out of their sleeves. The only reason that the brake disks didn’t get rusty, was a halfway applied brake pad, that has been used all to its last mile inch:

      Hey, it’s not down to the metal! Stuck caliper sliders suck.

    Guess which one will be far more capable off-road…

    I see the inspiration for the Blazer Chalet.
