Although the chassis was most likely assembled at the Ford assembly plant in St. Paul, MN, I doubt that the camper body was manufactured at the Ford plant.

My opinion is the body was probably built by a local coach/body builder such as Eckland Brothers in Minneapolis. Click on the links below to see pictures from the Minnesota Historical Society of a house trailer and other vehicles with Eckland Brothers built bodies:
