I've had this 2001 Aliner Classic camper for several years and have loved it. It's comfortable; it's lightweight so even I can move it around on concrete; it's not difficult to back into a campsite; it's taken me north and south with great pleasure.

My towing vehicle is a 6 cylinder Chevy Equinox; I had a hitch put on, hooked up and took off.

I want to give you a tour of this customized camper.

Under the new bubble window in the back is the covered spare tire. On the side is the AC. Note the partial covers over the wheels.

Two vents, a fantastic fan, bubble windows. Note the three storage compartments on this side. The front one goes all the way through.

On this side you can see the refrigerator vent, the power connection, the water connections and fill hole for water tank. The last vent is for lighting the hot water heater.

The storage compartment by the door can be accessed from inside, too, under the dinette seat. Great place for blankets in the winter.

The sink has a traditional faucet. The propane stove has three burners. The refrigerator is a three way Dometic. You can run it on propane, shore power or off the battery.

The dinette table can fold down and become a single bed. I had boards made to fit the area and to allow more room underneath for a suitcase. I used a smaller, collapsable table when traveling alone and would put a comfortable reading chair in the table spot.

Notice the custom built shelf and storage cupboards along the front. Great location for media--radio, TV and computer and/or iPad. The cupboards almost doubled the storage capacity. Also below on the wall is a 4 outlet plug, and a double outlet by each seat back. Very comfortable.

The window in the door opens and has a screen. There is a new door lock, including a deadbolt.

In front of the couch on each side is a fold down table. They can go down out of the way when the couch is a double bed, or become work tables, eating tables, etc. with the couch.

This wheel well has storage room. The one by the converter has only a little space.

I had a large storage drawer put in under the couch/bed. The bed boards do lift up to access the under bed storage, but the drawer made part of that a lot simpler.

The furnace is propane and works like a charm to camp during the winter. The AC is electric and also works well but you need shore power, or, maybe, a generator.

Here I am in the woods, camping comfortably in the Aliner.

Really like your Aliner. Saw that it was for sale on the Aliner Owners Club site. I have been looking for something such as this and from what I have seen I would buy it in a min. if you weren't 10 hours away from where I am located. It really looks clean and well taken care of. Sounds like you have really enjoyed haveing it. If I may ask what are you replaceing it with?

At the moment I have a Chalet
I bought a Chalet XL 1937 as a replacement camper. It's bigger than I expected, than it felt when I examined it, so I may keep it only a short time. It's beautiful, but I think I'm too old for a heavy RV. Thanks for asking.

Nice Aliner!!!
Do you still have "Alice" and is there anything you would have done to the trailer if you were going to keep it?

Nice Aliner response
There were a few things, like a minor leak that developed in some caulk on one of the roof vents, that I would have fixed. But I really wanted a camper with a bathroom.
