Hi, I am just joining up since the AS and the Avions are very similar. I purchased a Avion C-10 truck camper last week, and it is basically a shell. I intend on restoring in in a way, but updating the appliances and comforts, but hopefully keep the old world charm. It was sold as a 1969, but after much research, I believe it is either a 1966 or 67, I hope to talk to the Cayo Brothers soon, who is the family who started the Avion company. I am interested in talking to anyone and everyone who has ideas for the resto-mod. Things that make these old campers more usable, since we plan on using it here in Kodiak Alaska where we live, and for trips to the mainland of Alaska, and later beyond. Thanks again for a great resource for the classic aluminum campers!
