My 'old' camper mods

I bought this '72 Mitchell for 600 bucks, had to modify it to fit in my truck, and am too cheap to pay for frame camper mounts. So, I have a welder, and I'm pretty good at it, and built my own. The first pic is after we got it home and it not fitting just right. The second pic is after the mods to get it into the bed all the way. The other two are of my mounts, the rear in the reciever, and the front mounts are identical. The reciever mount on the passenger side had to be cut and welded to clear my exhaust pipe. All mounts were built from 3/16" thick square tubing

Oh yeah, I ran a 15.321 on the 1/4 mile at Bandimere speedway on Sunday :B

Sorry about the crappy cell phone blur :S

For a $600 investement, some labor and a few supplies you got a great deal. The mounts look great.

You ran a 15.3 with the camper on there!

Looks good, buddy.

You should try it with the camper. Might just get the front off the ground with all that weight behind the axle.
