My husband recently purchased a 1967 pop up skamper camper.  We are wanting to restore it but are having a difficult time locating pictures of this vintage model. The closest was have come has been the 1964 model that I saw in a brochure but it was just a pencil drawing and didn’t show the inside. Our camper is a straight pop up without the sleeper wings. I have a couple of pictures of it that I just took, but I cant seem to figure out how to insert them in the message……I’m a newbie here 🙂 If anyone knows of this type of camper, has pictures or even a manual I would love to talk with them more about it.

Thanks, Shannon

Welcome Dice.  I’ll do some digging around for info for you.

To insert photos it’s best to have them on a web host such as http://www.photobucket.com.  From there you merely copy paste the info input here.

Success, we finally got pics! 🙂 I just wanted to elaborate a bit on this popup, the outside dimensions are 6′ 6" wide and 13′ 6" long (including the tongue) and for a 67 its in way better than average shape.  The inside has been modified thru the yrs, but with some good pics I can have her back to original ( or really close ) with about 30 hrs work. The canvas is in really good shape for a 67 , but any suggestions on who, or where i could get a replacement would be greatly appreciated . Vintage campers like this, in this good of shape are far and few between, so restoring this one is gonna be a joy. Sorry to be long winded, but putting this ole girl back to original and camping in it, is something im really looking forward to.

Welcome and good luck restoring your camper.  My first camper was an 84 coleman columbia and gutted that and redid the interior.  I am sure you will have some stories on redoing your skamper.  Take lots of pics while you do it and post them.  We love to see what you are doing and how you handle issues that come up.

Looks like you’re starting with a camper that’s in pretty decent shape for its age! Keep us posted on your progress.

I have no personal experience with them, but http://www.bearcreekcanvas.com/ has a good reputation. I’ve seen some of their work and it looks excellent.

You could also try Gregory’s Canvas.  Can’t remember their addy right now.  They used to supply canvas and Apache parts.  Now they’ve split into two separate companies.  Apache is sold by the son and the canvas part by the dad.  I could get the number/addy if you’d like.

I know this was posted 4 years ago, but I was interested to know if you were able to restore your Skamper? I just acquired a 1970 model and I haven’t really seen many others with an older model like this.

I am also interested to know how this restoration project came out.
Did a little research and found this print ad for sale on Ebay.
The beds fold up instead of sliding on rails as in the ad; who knew.

Happy camping everyone.

The former owner of my 1970 Skamper pop-up was able to find all his paperwork, so I now have the owners manual as well as for the furnace, 3 way fridge he upgraded to a few years later and the Sears canopy he purchased.

Although this thread is old I’d like to know how they came out? Also if anyone has any questions about skampers ,especially pop ups let me know. I have had a 69 in my family since my grandfather bought it new nearly 50 years ago. I have since restored it and can tell you pretty much everything about them. As far as 67 in this topic it definitely had wings that pulled out into beds, they all did. U can see from the pics that they were taken out and the canvas cut and folded down. That is the original with the blue. The inside would have been a lighter tan color with redish orange or that vintage yellow curtains. Hopefully someone responds, i have tons of memories in this camper and would love to help out keeping these rare pop ups around!

We will be making our maiden voyage with our new to us 1970 Pup sometime this spring/summer! We are doing some updates to it right now, like reupholstering the cushions and probably changing the fridge out and tires. The only alteration made by the original owner was a few years later he changed out the icebox to a 3 way fridge, but I’m not sure how effective it is. It’s in awesome shape for its year!
