    -- On sale! $200 ---
    I bought this mess because I wanted the 10' Alaskan camper that someone thought would fit the Suburban good if they sawzalled it all to heck. If someone on here wants it for the parts, I would definitely come down on the price. The engine may be high mileage, can't say, but it fires up and sounds okay.

    I think we need to see pics of the Alaskan camper. I'm glad the odometer reads 200K, because at 400 you're too close to me. Not that I need any of that mess.

    Hey Frank........I need to come up and see you again........as you have the strangest things in your yard......and I mean that in a "Good Way".........a Suburban with half the roof cut off??? ..........Wow , reminds me as a kid when we used to buy an old car for the summer.......I cut the roof off an old Chevy one year cause it was hot......

    And a 10' Alaskan Camper? Cabover?..........I'm a big fan of those......had a few back in the day........but only the 8 ft model..If you remember the Alaskan dealer for years was right off the freeway in Cordelia...........my Grandson would love to see all your stuff!

    I do have some junk here. The Alaskan that was on the Suburban is a 10 foot NCO (cool Alaskan owners refer to them as CO or NCO). I also have two 8 footers. All are pretty rough. My plan is to get one of the 8's and the 10 fixed up or restored. They are like Corvairs and Jeeps to me. You get one, then you get one more for parts, then you get one more just because you can't stay off Craigslist...
    The Suburban is 200 to any ECJ5er. I might throw some pictures of the camper in off topics after I clean it all out. It is rough, and is currently pretty disgusting inside, but the price was right.
    Not worth the effort. Although I have toyed with the idea of seeing how much more I could cut off and still have it be driveable.

    That's cool.............
    They are now & were pretty slick at the time............everything well thought out inside , like stove , Ice box , sink , bedding , table and storage cabinets that conveniently folded down to a cab height camper via 4 on-board hydraulic cylinders plumbed into one jack..........I even had the pull-out side saddle boxes which added storage.......although heavy they were well built and insulated.......

    Here is a Pic of one of my Alaskan Campers ..........Deer Hunting somewhere , I bought that truck new the day after Christmas 1975 so after that point.........Love the Nostalgia!

    Yep.........your right , I always liked it.........good for two people.........unfortunately where I lived was short of storage.....so it went in favor of a conventional Non- Alaskan ( although I looked ) Cab-over Camper....it was fun while it lasted.

    Yup, finish off the rest of the roof. Brace the windshield a little more and add some seats and it would be a fun convertible for all your friends

    you could always have about $200 in fun just thrashing the poor thing....I bought a 71 Chrysler Newport for 50 bucks once...for about a month me and my buddies tore that car up on dirt roads...limped it to the junkyard and got my 50 bucks back :D

    Out of all the useful advice on here, that is the closest to what might actually happen. Pull the doors, pull the broken windshield, remove 1500 lbs of tweeker trash out of it, tow it up to the deer club, and leave the keys in it. Let whoever wants to take it for a spin.

    There's a dark blue Suburban running around down here with the whole roof cut off; only a windshield left and front seat left. Its even about the same vintage. These are called "Conch Cruisers" here (pronounced "konk"). In this case, a poor man's pickup.
