Looks like Jon W. is the lucky new owner of Glenn DeSpain's custom FC camper.  It was originally thought to be a FC-150 but the VIN number tells that it is actually a FC-170.  Some of the specifics include a Chevy 350 mated to the original three speed transmission. It's sitting on 16.5x10 wheels. There's a built in generator, water filtration system, 8000lb Warn winch, and there are so many toggle switches it makes someone feel like they are riding in the Apollo shuttle. The only resemblance to a FC is the grill area...the rest on the body is custom. Jon says that it's actually kind of sad that someone did this to a FC but it is done and the result is pretty cool.  Jon also mentioned that he is temporarily living in the camper until the end of the school year.  Way cooler than a dorm room and a "Chick Magnet" too boot!  Keep us informed on your plans for your one of a kind camper Jon.
