From what I can tell, the Outdoosman Edition may have been offered as a factory option from Chevrolet and possibly GMC. The brochures I found all reference Chevrolet, they don't mention a company specifically. The Outdoorsman came with a Fisherman's option, I assume the other option may have been called the Hunter's option?

Here is some literature, brochures, references and other items I found referencing the Outdoorsman Edition Conversion:

Literature / Brochures Notes
CHEVROLET SUBURBAN OUTDOORSMAN... offers angles and hunters the chance to choose special option packages that create a sportman's dream machine from Chevrolet's popular poeple carrier - without sacrificing the interior room that Suburban owners have always enjoyed. The Outdoorsman Edition with Fishing Options (shown here) is designed for either the bass fisherman who tows a boat, or the northwoods angler who totes a car-top boat on the roof rack and an outboard inside the vehicle. Besides the luxury interior, special heavy plastic storage compartments along one side of the fisherman's Outdoorsman Suburban house tackle boxes, gas tanks, and outboard motors so equipment won't move or tip over during driving.


Below are Suburbans between 1973 and 1991 (7th Generation) with the Outdoorsman Edition Packages installed.
