-This trailer was purchased as-is at a local Airstream dealer and completely restored by the owner. ​ This included replacing every exterior screw, repainting inside and out. new axles, bearings, wheels and tires. Adding electric brakes. Replacing marker lights and updating the electrical survice. ​ Interior window fittings were polished and a new floor treatment installed. ​ Upholstery was professionally done in vintage Ford Fairlane vinyl

-**1964 Kamp King** by Riviera 
-

-Riviera Trailers were a small one at a time company built in Oakville Ontario. ​ There was the model pictured here and a slightly longer version with a water closet. ​ There were no "model names" given to the units. ​ The owner of the pictured unit, Michael Lambert invented the name that seemed to go with the vintage of the trailer and re-christened it KAMP KING.   It is likely a 71 or 72 trailer as that is what was on the ownership papers. ​ Some of the parts on the trailer had a 60's manufacturing date so we would advertise that at the car shows.

-I am wondering about the history of this camper. 
-My wife owns a "​RIVIERA"​ that she got from her parents and I am currently in the process of restoring due to water damage; however the manufacturing tag on this one states that it was built in Comerce City, Colorado. 
-I am also aware of a camper that My Grand father put on a Ford Chassie that was also called a "​RIVIERA"​ made in Colorado 
- 
-I agree with the previous paragraph. I too have a '68 Riviera my husband and I are currently restoring. There is virtually no information about this brand online, but out camper'​s tag does say Commerce City, CO.

-The Kamp King featured here has been re-uphostered in Bermuda Blue and White to match the Lambert'​s tow vehicle and the floor re-tiled in black and white checkers. ​ The panelling is bright white with aluminum accents giving the interior a "​diner"​ feel.  The retro fabrics used for the curtains complete the look.  The new look is retro, moderne and opens up the space.====== Standard Features ======
