No mine but very cool and with Canadian dollar it's like $3000 USD or less.

Given the year, it's more likely badged as a "Lulu Island" camper (the GTRV predecessor).

My donor top was from a 1995 Lulu Safari and it's been... interesting... comparing it to later GTRV work. Lots of solid work, and the core of it is all there, but you can see they were still figuring stuff out.

Example: Pop-top latches hang "down" on the early models, but they can interfere with raising and lowering the top. Somewhere along the line they inverted these and the latches are on the van and the keepers are on the pop-top. Cleaner.

At that age, depending on care, the tent may still be OK, but the fiberglass will be 20+ years old and could probably use freshening (I know mine does). Headliner is likely to be sagging by now, as the old method/materials weren't perfect.

If there's any of the "furnture" inside (like a bench/bed, etc.) then it's an even better deal. I paid bargain basement prices for my donor, but it was stripped to the bare metal inside (and rhino-lined, badly).

The bad news is that the pop-top won't fit the newer vans since they all went "long" body 1995...
