I recently bought this 8' camper to replace my 11'. It's nice how light it is, but I'm going to miss the convenience the bigger camper offers. It's a West-Brook camper from the early 70's, but i can't find any info about the company. According to the emblem on the back, they were based in Gardena, Ca. Does anybody know anything about these or the company? Their history, models, etc.?

i might find out more about that camper this weekend. im doing some work on it to help my friend out. may even bring the camper to my place. if that happens i will for sure be doing some info search on it.
does yours have a spot for a porta potti on the right side up by the cab over? does it have a heater on the right side just inside the door to the camper? thats how his is set up.

love everyday like you won the lotto.

It has a spot for the porta potti there and it has one. It doesn't have a heater, but one could be installed there. It does have a swamp cooler on the roof which I thought was pretty neat.

If this is the original fire extinguisher, included or bought with the camper, it would pinpoint the year to 1970.

so after looking at the camper closer it might be a different brand but maybe not. maybe its just a different model. his is a 1972 monaco according to 1 left over paperwork through the years. the cab over portion is different. everything else inside looks the same though.

Ah, that poor bomber has seen better days, she's still around, though the gas station is long gone.   She's missing her cockpit these days, they removed it and moved it inside a building where it was restored.  They're currently raising money to eventually restore the rest of the plane and move it inside.

Back in the late sixties farm marked gas was 19 cents an imperial gallon which is 4.54 liters a us gallon 3.78 liters
At one point the local fuel supplier was giving away diesel for free.
They did not have enough storage, diesel was the byproduct of making gas .
This must have been when there was mild weather, diesel can be used for furnace oil, back then most people had oil furnaces

My boyfriend's dad was the owner operator of West-Brook Campers.   They were made in the Los Angeles area in the mid 70s.  He is now living in Las Vegas. 

We are very interested in getting our hands on one if you hear of anyone selling one.
