Our Find 


After searching for year and a half on Craigslist from coast to coast nightly for various toyota campers, we had come to the conclusion it just wasn't meant to be.  One Morning before work a quick craigslist search yielded this funky 1983 born jem - After an email to the owner (Eleanore) we were disheartened to hear that 5 other people/couples were already lined up for a showing before we could get out of work and get first refusal - Dang!


Impatiently waiting all day and working like  fiends, we happily made our trek from Portland to Arundle (approximately 30 minutes) for  viewing .  The exterior was in need of some TLC, but the interior...well, you can see for yourself, what's to no fall in love with!? 

Raw Power

Then came the moment of truth - How does it run?  With a twist of the key the vessel belovedly named Neige came to life, and ideled like a purring Tiger.  All estimated 100 horses ( New it pushed out 130hp)  ready for a road trip.  After the bumpy test ride, mostly they dry rotted tires,  we made an offer and our journey begin.  

What We Know

These Campers were built in Colton, CA 92324 by Sandtana Industries, Inc.
The chassis was purchased from Toyota, someone with limited metal working experience cut and extended to frame with some extra thick steel, and built the camper portion much like a house.  Online searches have yielded limted results, although we did find one website to be particularly useful:
Aside from details outlined from the above website, we don't know when the company began or ended, how many were produced, or if any other chassis aside from the toyota were used.  What we do know is:
* The top does in fact tilt on a Tilt-Top                                                                             
                 *The unit is under 20ft in length (RCAMPAH is extended for additional storage)
*It fits through a standard garage door                                                                           
*Drives like a car                                                                                                                          
*Was likely made  as  surf-mobile for the California parking lots                   
                                                                      *Our camper was originally sold to its owners in NY                                                                                                                    
*They get more looks and comments than high end sports cars                     
*It fits all our basic needs
