A Red-E-Bilt Camp is being lifted by two forklifts while a log truck is positioned beneath. The forklift on the left is operated by Harrison Starbird, on the right is Charles Lisherness. Virgil Starbird is supervising the operation. Leslie Pinkham was driving the log truck.

Red-E-Bilt Camps were constructed in the carpenter shop at Starbird Lumber Company in the late 1950s through the 1970s. They were framed atop oak "skids", sheathed with cedar log-siding, and roofed with asphalt shingles. A small pine kitchen-type cabinet was the only interior amenity. The camp was delivered to the purchaser's site, set-up and leveled.
