Startseite » RENOVATION of A 1981 COACHMEN PICK-UP Camper


    The 1981 version of this Coachmen „Casper xl 850“ Pick-up camper needed either to make its way to the dump or a serious make over. For it was part of the owners life for so long, the decision was easy.

    Its leaking edges and borders had caused quite some rotting damages over the years and a never found grease leak from the toilet cabinet had given the interior the rest. The upholstery was entirely finished and the interior desperately needed an update.

    Although the project is not entirely finished, I am proud to present the results. There will be a wallpaper in the dining area later, as well as some smaller repairs and adjustments, that can only be analysed when in use. The replacement of all windows is also on the menu for the next summer, as is a bigger solar panel. The final pictures will be added later.

    To finish the camper to this stage took me about three weeks. My partner got electricity & gas back on track and fitted the camper onto the car. A black camper was unique in Iceland until now, although it makes much more sense for Icelandic climate conditions.

    Note: The renovation was executed on the smallest possible budget. Quality paints of Benjamin Moore for the inside and outside, foams from Svampland sf and budget friendly fabrics from Rúmfatalagerinn and IKEA (what else in Iceland).
