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.

hi! We just bought a 1968 17' Red Dale Camper. There seems to be very little info on their history , manufacturer, etc. Can anyone tell me something about this camper?
It has a propane light wall sconce that is missing a globe. Does anyone have a source in Canada for one?
It seems to be in pretty good shape except the electrical. It has old aluminum wiring, and only half the camper has power. My husband is trying to root out that problem. He thinks he will run new wire. I think that is the safest solution since a modern air conditioner has been installed.
We live in Lampman, Saskatchewan.

Hi, I just bought a 1946 or 1947 Silver Dome (approx. 8ft. x 28ft.). Does anyone know much about Silver Domes from this period?

The trailer is a TOTAL wreck and I'm trying to find someone to work on it (needs pretty much the whole nine yards). Can anybody recommend someone or some business in the San Antonio/Austin area?

Many thanks,
