I came across this Craigslist ad yesterday if anyone is looking for a vintage sheep camp, it's located about an hour north of where I'm parked. It looks to be in remarkable condition for it's age. If I didn't already have too many projects I could be tempted by such a beast. :lol:

http://siouxfalls.craigslist.org/atq/4046084147.html

Ad copy: "Antique sheep camp on a 1927 dodge bros chassis...probably originally built in Casper, Wy...
The interior configuration is exactly as seen in their earliest models. I have the original wheels but they were in such poor shape and finding tires (?) So Land Rover fit the bolt pattern....
$7,500 507-865-4661 Serious buyers only, please!"

That is just how I remember sheep camps. I been in a few and they pretty much looked like that. Expect the tops was all canvas, not the wood on this one. But they have changed over time. Now they have metal roofs or some membrane material. And then there are the newly built ones.
