With regret, we're selling our 57 Metzendorf camper, serial # 0005. Thats right, the 5th one built. I have a clear Ohio title in my name. Its 10'6 total length, body is 8'3 long, and 6'3 wide. Its very rare, very cool, and very small! Not for a family! Great for a single person or 2 people if you really like each other! It would be cool behind a 57 chevy, or a hotrod or rat rod! It has a small furnace, propane fridge, 2 burner cooktop, sink. all interior lights work. Has Coker whitewall tires. Tows well. We've used it several times this year. We just decided we need a larger camper to fit our family needs better. This is very similar to a shasta or scotty, only much more rare. $2800. Call or txt 330-719-89 two 7. Txts get fastest response. Please leave message if calling if I dont answer, and I will call back asap. Thanks

"I have a 1964 Metzendorf camper that is 13 ft. long and sleeps 3-4. Asking $1000.00.B.O.This was towed with a 4 cylinder Jeep Patriot. We bought it 3 years ago and put work into it and have been using it ever since. It has a couch that folds into a double bed and a dinette that turns into a bed as well. It does not have the original refidgerator or stove but the hook ups are there as well as the original propane lamp that is above the dinette. There is a sink with a water holding tank that is usable as well as an electrical hook up which works as well. There is a nice size storage cabinet and plenty of other cabinets above the counter, under the bed and under the dinette seating. It is short enough to fit into a regular garage. Needs nothing except a new owner. We are only selling this because our family has outgrown it. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY! Must give a contact phone number when reponding please. "

Memorial Day

Well...I didn't go camping. I spent the weekend packing and getting ready to move. I was able to transfer my prime camping site in the Catskills to a friend at work. At least someone I knew got to enjoy the site. We hope to still go camping in the Green Mts for July 4.  Due to the purchase of a 'new' house.... it wont be the most adventurous camping summer. At least the camper will get a new home indoors. Where we are moving it is required by law to keep it stored in a garage. Good thing about a is built to go in a garage!  Having a garage will hopefully allow me to work on her year round.

A new home for my trailer

Found a new home for the trailer and me. I get house and she gets a garage! Renovations on the trailer will definitely be on hold, but with a garage I will be able to work on her over a winter or in bad weather.

Get your own Metzendorf!

It looks like spring is on its way.  I can finally get to the camper...she was kinda blocked by a lot of snow.  There seemed to be a little bit of condensation in the camper, but I haven't fully investigated yet. This spring will be dedicated to house hunting and finding a place that has storage for the little camper!
