Talking CJ5 Jeep Universal Camper

This is unreal. Someone provided the JeepForum.com link to this over on RV.net, and when I first saw the photo of this thing, I said NO WAY. I figured it must have been some hack DIY job of coupling a small truck camper with a CJ5, and that the new owner must have been sold a bill of goods. Not so! Look down further in the thread and you'll see the factory brochure showing that these things are for real. Now I'm not planning on getting rid of my camper because of this, and while it is a bit on the ugly side of things, it's still pretty cool.

Oh, here's the link:

Wow - what a great idea. Kinda funny how a CJ5 with a 160 HP engine was rated for that thing - it couldn't have been light it had a 20 gallon water tank for cripes sake. Now you can't pull an empty utility trailer without going over the limit of a TJ....

Can you say "lawyers"

I want one for a TJ.

Would be kind of cool, on a TJ.

Only, you'd have to wheel with out a roll cage (or modify it to just cover the front seat passengers).

I want to see a photo of what the 3rd wheel on that camper shell looks like.

Is it just an extra axle bolted onto the bottom of the camper?

I'm surprised none of the camper manufacturers copied the design at some point. There are plenty of YJ's and TJ's on the road. Although with concern over liability most companies have now, I guess it really isn't surprising.

My Grandfather had one & we used it many times.

There was an aluminum fishing boat mounted up top.
