The 1968 1500, aka Dad von Shasta. She lives in North Carolina with my folks.
The latest addition to my repertoire, the 1960 1600-SC, aka El Heffe von Shasta. She’s here in California with us!

I purchased my first Shasta camper in 2008. She is a 1968 Shasta 1500. I have been obsessed with the lifestyle of vintage campers ever since. Our most recent acquisition is a 1961 Shasta 16-SC, she's in a state of disrepair and we're on the pursuit of time and space to get her all fixed up! Join us on our journey!
