I was at a display of an HO module group and there was one module with a camping scene. The scene contained a Dodge/Mercedes Sprinter motorhome. I came home and searched Walthers and Wiking on-line and could not locate one. Searched e-bay & Amazon also. Could anyone identify the HO scale manufacturer? My sister owns one and I thought it would make a good surprise for her to find it on the layout.
Thanks

Didn't find it here, but you never know, with a camping scene (away from it all) you could get away with 1/64 vehicles and there are some 1/87th around.

You might need to make it yourself starting with a similar 1/87 scale Sprinter truck.

...and maybe using the camper shell from another 1/87 scale camper such as one of these VW's by Wiking.

You have amazing web research skills there. I appreciate the information and believe there is a kitbashing project in my future.

Don't know if Roco has some military vehicle model that could be adapted. Lindberg used to make an HOish camper kit, that was based on a pick up. Camper part was one piece.

Check Oxford Miniatures https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk. Their 1:87 US line is small and all automobile. However the UK 1:76 OO scale line is huge with a large selection of modern vehicles of all types. If you find anything that works, it is best to order through the large UK online shop of Hattons which ships at low cost to the US and with 20% VAT tax taken off the price.
