Meet Tweety,

We have owned him for about nine years and he has been all over the US. We first pulled it with a Toyota Corrolla and then with the Dodge mini van. Both cars pulled it well because it is listed to weigh only 950 pounds. The Dodge gets 22 mpg pulling him. Because he will fit into a normal 7 foot garage door it has not been out in the weather and looks extremely good. It is all fiberglass and will last longer than any of us, unlike stick built campers.

He is actually famous you can look at the following sites to get info. The first two are blogs that we did as we traveled and make sure you go to "older post" to see more. In 2012 we traveled in Tweety for 5 weeks and had a ball.

Many of the pics are from some of our travels with Tweety.

I guarantee you will be the most sought after camper in the campground. We have shown him at least a 1000 times to people at campgrounds. We have met people that told us they found Tweety on the web that we had never met. 

The refrigerator is 110 volt and does a great job. I put an inverter in the van that runs it safely down the road, two way refrigerators that run on propane while traveling means you have to have your gas on and that could be an issue if you have an accident. The air conditioner is just above refrigerator and does a great job. The white grills on the passenger side vents the refrig and air conditioner. This unit has a sink and two burner gas stove. The microwave is just below the stove. The dinette is roomy for six adults and when it goes down to make the bed you will enjoy that we spent 500 dollars for the foam and it is almost king size. We have always gotten better sleep in Tweety than we do at home. People can not believe how much room we have. A porta-pote pulls our of the cabinet for use at night. Also just beside the refrigerator is a closet for hanging clothes or we put our bedding in it. Both benches have a lot of storage. The fresh water tank was removed before we got it and we never put it back. Almost all campgrounds have water hookup for fresh water and that way you do not have to worry about sanitation of your water.

It is currently located at Punta Gorda Florida and this is the best place to make a vacation when you pick it up. We are 17 miles north of Ft. Myers. We would store it till Christmas if you like, it takes very little space.

In Florida it is under our carport and we have a cover to protect it from the sun. Tweety has enjoyed going north to Ohio in the summer and their he lived in a garage. 

Take a close look at the pictures. Yellow is the original color and has not been painted. The pop top gives you over 6 foot five inches of headroom and is very easy to raise and lower. The canvas has windows that zip open and has screens. If you look at the pictures of the ads of the hub caps, Tweety still has them. Also, for car buffs those are the same as Ford put on 1963 Fairlane.  The tires are radial Goodyear and lots of tread left. Bearings are in great shape and ready to go anywhere.The electric hookup is a standard flat 4 wire plug. Tweety has been rewired on the 110 volt side. For heat we used a small electric heater and it will keep you toasty warm on the cold nights. 

In one of the pics you can see the colorful awning that Tweety wears to help keep the sun off of you. It is about 10 X 10 in size and is almost brand new.

The trailer comes with a complete cover (We want you to protect Tweety).

We have had a lot of wonderful memories in Tweety and I know you love him as well. 

Let me know if you have any questions about Tweety and please do no bid if you will not continue to take care of him, but for sure I want someone to use him. He loves to Travel and is ready to go now.
