I'm gonna try my best, the guy who has it is known to be quite the barterer, so I'm sure it won't be an easy one to strike a deal on.

A REALLY tall storage pavilion.  You just don’t see the roof!

It is a pole barn, of course.

There's a few pieces missing I'd think?

At one time I think his intention was to put up a pole barn of some sort…I’ve been living here close to 20 years and they’ve been there as long as I can remember

The base looks pretty cool.

I would estimate it‘s an late 80’s right.

so far it looks good on the pictures, sure, little aged and therefore little care is needed,

but it looks still good - plus - it has a own Charme... i like it.

 

I don’t know your local rules for LPG Cooking and Heaters - as long as you be not yourself an LPG proffessional

let check once the whole LPG Gas system by Proffesionals for leakages, all other can be self made.

It‘s recommend to check all LPG tubes and the Pressure regulator for the Stove and Heater

if there be in and in good condition or exchange them if they more as 10 years old.

 -  For your own Safety and safe operations -

 

Have a lot of Fun and good times with her.

Took the camper to town for morning coffee this morning so I could fill it up with fresh fuel…still amazed at how well this thing runs and drives. Takes me back to when I was a kid and camping with my great-grandparents in their old 74 Chevy with an Idle-Time truck camper

That thing had a pretty swanky interior with those button tuft seats and blue carpet.  It wasn’t one of those “beau James” models was it?

Those seats were awesome. I always wanted a set when I had my 80's Chevys. 

 

Olds engine is unusual. You normally didn't see that until you had to replace a blown up diesel in the late 70's

That was my thought as well. The early GM diesels were Olds blocks & they were not good on power or efficiency. I was involved with a few diesel to gas conversions using Olds 350's

Worked at the service station a bit in high school and had a customer with an early diesel in a chevy pickup and it would barely pull itself up on the lube rack! Not the best idea ever!
