I don't know about that, but we are restoring a 1965 Frolic camper. Her name is Lucy. We need some interiour parts and also the name plate for the front. Do you have a good website for parts?

I'm looking for any info on a cree camper looks to be from 50s-60s I can't find any info on them please help Thanks.
I can tell you they were built in Marcellus, Michigan about 25 miles south of where I live. I have had a 60s model Cree pickup camper and now have an '84 23' cree 5th wheel. Cree coach co. went out of business in the late 80s. They made some very solid campers. I did some research and found cree made the 1st pickup camper back in the 50s. Mine is a great trailer that has held up great for the last 25yrs. I have been doing some updating and freshening up on it, we love it. Thanks, Matt

Hello, I just bought a 1964 Shasta. My eighty year old father and I are having the time of our lives restoring it!
My question, the silver stripe everyone seems to be putting on theirs, which seperates two colors, what is it? Paint, metal, or some sort of pre-stick tape, maybe like on cars? Please can anyone help with this question? Thanks, Laura
the paint sepperation was polished aluminum of the trailer metal before the body color was applied

I have a 1960 Holiday travel trailer - 15 feet long. Anyone have any information on Holiday trailers or know where I can research them? Also, the seller said it's 4000 pounds, and our truck has only a 3500 pound towing capacity. Any chance you think the seller is off (that figure seemed high to me)? If not, I have to buy an additional towing package. Thanks for responding.

Sadly, I have had to scrap my restoration of a 1964 vintage canned ham trailer. The title says it is a TearDrop Model, but it's not a tiny trailer. 16 feet long and 7 feet wide. Looks like a Shasta or such. Anyway I have salvaged everything except walls. I have all of the windows, door, roof vent, torquoise Holiday stove/oven, sink, faucets, lights and lamps. I also have the rear exterior trailer lights, cabinet pulls. If you are looking for an orginal part to restore your vintage trailer, please contact me to see if I have something you are looking for. I even have the base trailer for sale, if someone is interested starting a project from the ground up...
It was sad to have to part the trailer out, but it had too much water damage for my restoration skills. Anyway contact me at [email protected] for more info on what I have for sale.

Which i had been looking those up latly. Any I paid $400.00 for it. But I get it home which its not in that bad a shape at all. I went through a draw an there it was a registration paper with 1968 shasta on it red an white. Hell all i wanted was a camper to go camping in. Now i got me a good one. What do you think.

I am currently looking at a 13' Interior length Bee-Line. Some interior water damage / dents. All in all "good" shape. 1957 3 owners, very clean and absolutely no odor. Is $1500 a fair price?

I have just offered $2100 for a 1970 Beeline 14' trailer camper. I think the offer has been accepted. Waiting for authorization from his wife! Inside has been redone (new floor, they added microwave and electric refirdg) and roof resealed. They have replaced windows with what I think may be larger ones than original windows so not original but, plenty of room for us and in great shape.

I have a lead on an Oberlin trailer, 15 feet from hitch to back, so probably 12 or 13 feet. Unsure if it is a Spotty Sports but from the pics on another trailer site I think it is. Current owner doesn't know the weight and I need to know if I can comfortably pull it with a Subaru Forester. Any Spotty fans out there know the weight on the small model?
Thanks, Deb

Hi! I HAVE a 1963 Norris Woodsman, with the Owner's Manual. I jacked the cabin up, pulled the trailer out. I brushed off the rust with a right angle grinder with a steel brush attachment, painted it, and rebuilt the floor. I then put the cabin back on the trailer. Now I'm almost finished replacing rotten wood, after peeling the skin off. I'm replacing everything that's rotten, but trying to keep it as original as possible. I still have the fridge, stove/oven, heater, and sink. I'm going to replace all the laminate in the kitchen, and will be installing real linoleum. I had to clean all the windows with a steel brush, BY HAND. I've had it for a year and it's almost dried in.

Would you like me to copy the manual and send it to you? I'd be happy to.

Good luck finding any info on Norris. I bought a 1964 12' Norris a few years back. We love the trailer and worked on it quite a bit to restore it the best that we could. I have only found an old add for a similar one online. I also found a little info on the company that built it which has changed names several times over the years. Nobody that is employed there now knows the history or anything really. Good luck...any info that you find please share.
