stranger things era style
If this insane camper looks like something you’d see at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturing Association show in Las Vegas, well, there’s a good reason for that. Iowa-based River City Rods built Brown Sugar, a luxed-0ut and heavily modified 1983 Chevrolet C30 Camper that’s slammed down to the pavement, for the 2019 SEMA Show.
And if you find yourself lusting over it, well, good news: this camper can now be yours. It’s currently up for auction on eBay.
The camper itself uses a 5.3-liter V8 with a four-speed automatic transmission. It can be raised and lowered using its air suspension. Admittedly, it’s more of an ultimate tailgate rig than a vehicle one would use for actual camping; the seller describes it as a “party cabin on wheels.” (Check out some of our favorite camper vans if you’re looking for the latter.)
Brown Sugar won’t go cheap. The bidding is already north of $100,000, with three days remaining on the auction — and the price has not met the reserve. That said, you may be able to make a good chunk of the price back renting it out for bachelor parties and college football games in the future.
