I was looking at KSL Classifieds and saw this interesting popup truck camper called the Chevy Blazer Chalet.

The owner described it here:

i have a chellet camper desighned for full size gmc/chevrolet blazers. it is in good condition, it has a 2burner stove,fridge and a furnace. it has bench seats that fold for a bed, and is desighned to be open into the cab of the blazer. the top pops up single hadedly.and reguiers no drilling or mods, it bolts on to the exsiting hole for the shell bolts this camper was built will fit all modles up to 1989. i belive these campers wher only made for a few years in the 70s.

Here are the rest of the photos:

I found some photos of a fully restored one here: Photo Gallery – Automobiles




There is a Yahoo! Group Forum for these truck campers: The Big ‘Nook. – Yahoo Groups

I love this advertisement for it that I found here: Pop-Up Truck Camper, The Blazer Chalet From 1976 | Motornomadics

The reason these campers look so good is because they were designed by Chinook. I love how streamlined they look with an original Chevy truck. They’re not the right camper for me, but they definitely have that cool retro style!


  1. Repeating the comment I placed at the last Motornomadics site you linked to, for owners or enthusiasts of the Blazer Chalets or the GMC version, the Jimy Casa Grande, we have an internet forum at

    I’m the #2 moderator there, it’s a free sign-up, members get to use the forum to trade info & restoration tips, plus we have an ever-growing set of photo galleries. About 75+ members own at least one of these. I maintain two ‘for sale’ lists at our forum for the new guys who join to find one of these. My ‘city-only location’ Google map is here:

  2. I would like to join the club as I bought #100 at an auction this month. I had never seen one of these before and plan on restoring it.
