2002 Western Canada RV Adventurer M-104DSS Truck Camper with 2006 Dodge Ram 3500HD Big Horn Diesel 1-Ton CrewCab (4x4)
I will sell the camper without the truck or both but will not sell the truck until the camper is sold. CHECK IT OUT. THIS IS NOT YOUR NORMAL CAMPER & TRUCK COMBO.
I wanted a self contained rig to use for hunting and fishing where I could tow either a fishing boat or off-road vehicle outside Arizona. It had to be 4 wheel drive to get away from the maddening crowds, set up for dry camping (no facilities), as luxurious as a Class A motorhome (smaller OK but with a nice shower stall, AC & heat) and able to launch a boat. I also wanted to avoid problems I experienced before with tanks freezing so I searched for a true 4 season camper with enclosed heated tanks. The following details and movies show the finalized project.
2002 Adventurer, top of the line 4 season camper, fully loaded and in incredible shape. I am the third owner of this hard to find Canadian made camper. The first owner bought it new in Canada then moved to Phoenix. It was reportedly stored in a shed for the first 5 years of it's life and rarely used. The second owner was a 75 year old man who only used it a few times while it sat behind his business in Phoenix. It is one of the earliest true 4 season campers with a slide out. The more common Arctic Fox is essentially a copy of the Adventurer. Adventurer is still in production and has since moved to WA. You will swear this camper is only a few years old.

Hard to find 2006 Dodge Ram 3500, Big Horn edition, 4-door Crew Cab, 5.9L Cummins diesel, 4 X 4, 6-speed, Dually
This is reportedly the last year Cummins that can burn vegetable oil. Transmission is the Mercedes G-56 not Navistar.
Truck was purchased by the previous owner with a blown motor. Fewer than 5,000 miles on a new block, injectors and turbo. I replaced motor and transmission mounts with MOOG, replaced the problematic stock dual mass clutch with a South Bend single disk and hydraulics, had the drive shaft balanced and rebuilt with new U-joints. The steering has been upgraded to the later year Y-steering with new control arm bushings, damper, adjustable upper and lower ball joints and a steering box stabilizer. GUARANTEED NO INFAMOUS DODGE DEATH WOBBLE AND PERFECT ALIGNMENT.
The Big Horn edition is loaded with options but there were things needed to build the ideal rig.
Two piece aftermarket exhaust manifold (stock single piece always crack)
