    You could actually order Casa Grande camper unit when you bought a 76-77 GMC Jimmy.  It's counterpart, also known as a Chevrolet Blazer, had the same package available and it was called the Blazer Chalet.


    The GMC Jimmy Casa Grande and Blazer Chalet was a collaboration between GM and Chinook, a manufacturer of self-contained motorhomes and campers, being best known for their Toyota-based camper conversions. The camper unit is a reinforced plastic body over a steel frame.  It is bolted on to the Jimmy/Blazer with rubber seal between the body and the camper unit to seal out air and moisture and allow the body to flex when driving over rough terrain.


    It has an expandable top which allows for more than six feet of headroom.  The body and the cab have no wall between them so you can walk back and forth between the driver's seat and the camper.  The Casa Grande/Chalet, could be ordered in a base package or with available extra features in three separate packages.


    Base Package: 
    • You got sleeping accommodations for 2 adults and seating for 4 with convertible seat bunks.
    • Upholstery for seats is in Saddle vinyl - color coordinated with the Jimmy cab seats.

    • Indoor-outdoor carpets cover both floor and overhead areas.

    • Two roomy storage compartments, one with a hanging wardrobe.

    • All Base Package items.
    • 5000 BTU LPG heater.
