From the bloggers at Do It Yourself RV:
Dave MacQuaid knew exactly what he wanted when he set out to find one to rebuild. Two of his brothers had Amerigo campers when he was younger, so Dave knew the model well. When he found a 1976 version for $600, he had to buy it.
Spending only $5,000, he completely renovated an aging, but exceptional, Amerigo pickup camper.
The Amerigo line of pickup campers was somewhat of a legend in its own time. With a heavier frame than most, it was built to last. It’s good to know that the company put some thought into a quality design.
