    Re: Alaskan Campers

    Looks great especially the steps, but I would look into some sort of way to display your trucks lic while moving. I have a pop-up myself and love that sort of traveling, especially because you can use drivethrough's while traveling and park in garages.....Jetspray

    Camping World has the steps.

    and it looks like a bracket was made to slide them into the hitch.

    Hi, I was just wondering where you got those neat steps on the back of your Alaskan Camper. Did you make them?

    Re: Alaskan Campers

    As the proud owner of the ( IT Mobile) now the “willbilly hide away” I have to say it was the best $1,000 I ever spent next to a Minn Kota AP for the boat.

    Thanks for the offer R/H , Ever consider a you tube course lesson on restoration??

    What I like best about mine is Insulation insulation insulation and did I mention the insulation keeps it sooooo, cool during the summer heat, that you have to love it.
    This will be my first winter of Mack fishing in my Alaskan but I can tell you last winter in the snow in Capt. Ken’s (“The Dog House”) *just the lantern kept it toasty warm for cocktails and visiting.

    What I do not like is what a heavy weight it is. I know F. Frank has blurted out the weight several time and I still CRS or how many #. You will not put mine on a half ton with out some beefy overloads. Steve I drained the water holding tank and that helped a tiny bit.

    Hope to see you at Pyramid Rusty although I will be in a tent. I sure hope it doesn’t *rain hard. or buddy 8-)may have a Wetdog 2 as company *in Mickey’s motor home. ;D ;D

    Re: Alaskan Campers

    Thanks Steve, nice to hear from you, I figured this would catch your eye....traveling in the lap of luxury I hear 8-)

    updating the Hilton has been an ongoing process...ya gotta luv em ;)

    I'll post up some photos of the latest modifications

    Guys, you can still find these for under $1000....a far cry from $25K for a new one...and with a cabover model you can sleep four...in a pinch

    You just need to know what to look for as far as condition goes and how to make the necessary fixes and regular maint.

    Re: Alaskan Campers

    That's one fine piece 'O work Rusty.

    Broke my heart to let the 454 and Alaskan ( IT Mobile ) go.

    It in great hands though - huh Wilson ???

    There is an 8' Alaskan sitting off Greenwood road about a mile from
    Garden Valley. No for sale sign - just sitting there majestically.

    Alaskan Campers

    For anyone out there....thinking of getting one of these fine old campers.

    I am willing to share the information and sources for restoring them....to their fine old glory.

    Come and see me at pyramid or ask away...they are still fairly reasonable to get if you can find them...and they come up now and then.

    Upgrade to whatever standards you want or leave it bare bones....they are heavy, plywood creatures but solid and well insulated.

    Fine for fishing or a couple days away...or just a picnic at the beach
