Meet Lucille, my 1972 Aristocrat Landmark camper. I bought the first camper I saw, which I will admit was very impulsive of me (like I went from wanting one to buying one in 5 days). However, I was looking on craigslist A LOT for those 5 days, so when I saw this camper, I knew that it is was the right size for me and was within my budget.
I payed $1800 for Lucille, which I think was a little too much, but hey, I was really excited. Plus the previous owner let me keep it on his property for a week until my dad could come with the truck. It has a full bathroom with working plumbing, a new hot water heater, working electric & propane, and is all around in pretty good shape. That being said, I knew it had some previous water damage that needed to be addressed (more on that later), and it needs a new battery, tires (if I want to travel a distance), and a lot of TLC.
It turns out that this model Aristocrat is super rare. Not in the "more valuable" type rare, but in the "I can't find any information or parts" rare. Apparently the most popular aristocrat camper is the lo-liner, but they never made anything else that was very popular and the company went out of business in 1973. I kind of like that it is rare though. It feels unique and independent, which is how I like to think of myself. Here are all the interior pictures I took before we made any changes:
