With what looks like 4 flat tires I'd say it's staying put for a while. It does look extremely solid though.

I wonder if I could get a discount because of my last name.

Dave,

Thanks so much! Another guy in a different forum mentioned it by sheer coincidence (see post #4 & #6 at this link: http://expeditionportal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7127

Glad you could get interior pics, that says a lot about its condition. Strange thing about it, it isn't painted in colors shown in brochures for '76 & '77 Chalets. They always have tan colored camper shells and totally different stripes. See: http://www.tocmp.com/brochures/GMTru...let-01_jpg.htm and http://www.tocmp.com/brochures/GMTru...let-01_jpg.htm and http://www.tocmp.com/brochures/GMTru...ion-01_jpg.htm

But, I have seen '78-ish Toyota Chinooks with somewhat similar orange and yellow vinyl stripes on white fiberglass. This one has bucket seat color patterns right out of a '77 GMC Jimmy brochure and the countertop woodgrain pattern indicates it is a '77 version, so I'm wondering if it couldn't still be a GM factory version that simply wasn't like the standard ones, or if it was a one-off version put together by the Chinook Mobilodge people. Its serial number is 1595 with a build date of Nov '76, but that doesn't mean a whole lot. Chinook could have kept this one in inventory and put it on a '78 Blazer. Mine is #1747 built 1/77, but it is definitely on a '77 Blazer.

Or, this could be a repainted camper unit on a different "non-numbers matching" '78 Blazer.......

I have no idea how long ago the Google Street Viewmobile drove by the place, but it caught it with its side view....

Re: That Blazer Chalet in Bishop, CA - Teaser!!

It now appears at this estate sale page, with a different number to call. Hit the Previous/Next buttons to see all the other vehicles on that site.

I talked with the seller today, he says it starts and runs great, and the wheels were swapped back to the originals because the spoked ones on the front were rubbing against something on the frame. He apologizes for any missed calls from weeks prior, he received an overwhelming amount for all the vehicles in the estate sale.
