It is 1971 again. A ticket to the box office hit "Love Story" will cost you $1.50. Fuel for your gas guzzling car is only $.40 per gallon and many families are tuning in to The Partridge Family on TV. This 1971 Bethany Citation 46 pop up camper comes from those simpler times.. Over all it is in amazing condition with the original cushions and the orange, yellow and green floral fabric that looks like it was delivered yesterday. The real wood interior and floor have no defects. There are a few small dings on the original laminate. This would be an easy restoration project.
Bethany campers are known to be well built and strong. The exterior is beige aluminum on the sides and a one piece beige fiberglass top which was a technological innovation for that time. All three tires are new with very few miles.
The canvas is original too, has some stains and some holes which are all patched. All the zippers work!! If you prefer, all new canvas is available for about $800.00-850.00.I installed a new LP gas line but the stove valves need replacing. The gasket for the water pump appears to be dried out as well. I bought this a couple of years ago with the idea of fully restoring it but other interests have won out and it is now for sale. Before I bought it, it sat in a local yard for several decades.
There is a built in ice box that is trimmed with the same wood as inside and has a laminate top as a nice touch. You have to see it to appreciate it.
If you purchase it in August, I will throw in FREE a 12 piece set of Melamine dinnerware, in the original packaging, never opened. It is the perfect compliment to this time warped camper!! Thank you for viewing.
