Ford Falcon Camper Van

Post by Leigh »

I saw a 1985 Ford Falcon camper van. It looks very similar to a B190. Does anyone know the history on these?

(I moved this thread to General Chat - fits better there.)

I've seen a few, not many. I think the interior layout is similar to the B190, but I haven't actually been in one.

I think there were a couple brands making camper vans in the late 80s/early 90s. Airstream, obviously, after buying Okanagan's molds and process to build them. Roadtrek is another popular one and they also still exist.

In addition to the Falcon, I've also seen the Fiesta. Both look pretty much identical outside, so they may be related in some manner. (Of course, the late 80s and 1990 B190s look just like them too on the outside.) I haven't seen inside one to compare.

Although this site is "B190 Enthusiasts", owners of similar camper vans like the Falcon, Fiesta, and Roadtrek are also welcome. I probably should make that clearer somehow.
