This 1966 Power Wagon camper is owned by collector Aaron Arnold of Texas. He found the camper in New Mexico, and while it’s in surprisingly good condition on the outside, the inside will need some work.
Dodge made its original Power Wagon truck model from 1945 through 1980. While this RV looks like a truck camper, you might correctly call it a Class C motorhome.
Most early motorhomes were glorified truck campers, with a large living space mounted onto a truck chassis.

Chinook was founded in 1938. By the time this Class C was built in 1966, the company had been around for nearly 30 years.
An original Braden LU-2 PTO winch sits on the front bumper.
The ceiling could use a little TLC, but the interior looks decent otherwise.
Power Wagons were so popular that Dodge brought the brand back in 2005, and officially made it a truck model again in 2013.
Dodge thought highly of their creation as well. This is from the original Power Wagon owner’s manual,
To You – THE OWNER OF THE FINEST TRUCK BUILT – You have made a wise decision in the selection of this Dodge “Job-Rated” Power Wagon. Your choice exemplifies sound judgement of truck values and operating economy. Dependability is the key-note of your Dodge Power Wagon. With proper attention, your Power Wagon will give you satisfactory operation for many, many miles. – Power Wagon Owner’s Manual
