Chassis no. CKR187F121469. Yellow and tan over tan vinyl and cloth. 350, automatic, power brakes, air conditioning, hub caps, store brand tires, JVC cassette stereo, pop up Chalet camper cap with seats, tables, stove, fridge and Porta Potti in the back. Sold with a Honda CT70 bike mounted on the front.

Evaluation: Represented with 62,025 actual miles and mostly original. Includes minibike in photo. Maintained engine with newer hoses and wires. Dull paint is rubbed through in spots and scratched in several others. Reasonably clean on the inside but all original. Unclear if everything works back in the “chalet.” Dry chassis. A little beat up, but benefitted from dry weather in El Paso and shows no rust. Would make a cool project, and an even cooler road trip warrior.

Bottom Line: RVs and campers are apparently all the rage during the pandemic, meaning the moment may finally have arrived for the Chevy Blazer Chalet and its sibling the GMC Jimmy Casa Grande. Part SUV and part house, the Chalet combined the short-wheelbase, youthful Blazer platform with a reasonably spacious and well-equipped fiberglass-over-steel-frame camper top. Only about 1800 sold in 1976 and 1977, so it’s rare. Road trips are more interesting in a classic, especially one you can refer to as “my chalet.” This one certainly needs some cleaning up but probably nothing astronomically expensive. All things considered, a solid value in fun-per-dollar at this price. We’ve seen VW campers in similar condition (and without an included minibike) sell for far more.
