Zagelmeyer Auto Camp Co. Bay City, Michigan. I took this picture in 1971 of a 1923 Model T Ford that had this rare Kamper-Car Kit that cost $550 in 1926. My friend still owns this camper that he discovered in a shed in 1961. He restored the complete camper and he and his wife went on a Glidden Tour re-enactment some years ago in Virginia putting on a total of 1600 miles round trip from Connecticut.

I have been looking for this Kamper for a number of years,

When I wrote an article for the Vintage Ford, Zagelmeyer was one of the main Model T kampers looked at.

Even though I knew this example existed no one was able to locate the owner. We desperately wanted to add more information and photographs in the article.

I have an original brochure for the Zagelmeyer motor home, here are some of the illustrations from it.

One neat thing is the roof which raises as you pull down the folding beds on the side.

Would your friend be willing to correspond with me about the zagelmeyer?

Someone should manufacture that again.

It is magnificent.

There was an article written about my friends Zagelmeyer in a 2000 issue of Motor Home Monthly written by Kit Foster. As far as we know its the only example of this type of camper remaining. I understand there are other types what they call a Camper Car still around but very few.

Some years ago I was contacted by a man in Texas who was buying Model T wheels to use on the Zagelmeyer camper trailer reproductions he planned to build. Never heard any more from him. Did this ever get off the ground? Ed

Sure looks roomy. I am 6'4" think I'll fit?

I never heard of any reproductions as of yet. But to do this right it would take quit an undertaking.

Love the screen door entry through the cab but I have to wonder about using your stowed mattress as part of the rear wheel well.
