1968 Tag along
bought it 20 yr ago to sleep in because of my night shift, over the years the kids have used it for slumber parties and everything else. now they are grown I was going to take it on the road with the dogs. but when I started fixing a roof problem cam up with a lot more.. so I have been pealing off the tin and trim, rebuilding all the walls and this weekend I hop to get the body away form the floor and start tearing off the 2 floors hopping to same the org flooring. taking to the Bass and renting a lift. my uncle told me about a striper that will take he says every thing off (says it works better than naval jelly that never worked for me) they have a paint room and a lift. I have not figured out about they electric box if I have to up grade one of my sons is a election I have been down to the parts department a couple of times asking different questions on why something was done a certain way that seemed odd to me.. not having much luck with the electric.. I was wanting to put solar panels up about 80w , have a few problems find org parts like plastic trim ..

Help please. Do most people use 1/4 inch or 1/8 inch birch plywood to replace the old trailer walls? Thanks.

I have a early 60's Arrow travel trailer that I'd love to restore and use, however I don't have a title and can't find any kind of serial number on the thing.
Anyone have any idea where it might be located?
According to one website it's supposed to be "VIN located topside of hitch arm curbside near jack" but I sure can't find anything (and VIN numbers didn't come into use for years after this trailer was built).
Thanks!
Jeff,

Your Arrow looks exactly like my 1963 Arrow Little Chief! If you have not been able to find the vin because of layers of paint, I used naval jelly to remove the paint on my 15 ft Scotty Hilander. After I got the paint off and used a palm sander, the vin was visible. Good luck in your plight, I love the Arrow!! I also heard when traveling to Canada, trailers needed brakes. Neither of mine do. I have a v8 Dodge Pickup and figure brakes is not a deal with these little guys..

Bob, I'm trying to identify my Trailer - someone told me they thought it was a Red Dale-can't even find the vin#.The interior has a 4 burner stove, ice box - avocado green and the kitchen faces the front of the trailer. can you help? Thanks.
Nancy,

if you go to www.sistersonthefly and look on their caravan trailers pages, there is a sister who owns a red dale. I believe her sister number is 696. The trailer name is Little Red Rider. Hope this helps.

Tammy - thanks so much for your help. I'm pretty sure my trailer is a Cardinal - 1970?. Sisters on the Fly looks like a fun bunch of women having a lot of fun!!.

I'm redoing the inside of my trailer - it has some water damage in the corners. I'm putting in all new walls but can't decide if I want to put in birch plywood or 1/4 in paneling. Can you help? I don't know if they make 1/8 inch birch plywood - Having a hard time finding any and 1/4 inch plywood is just to hard to work with (on the ceilings and on curves) so I thought I'd use a real nice finished paneling. I know a lot of people suggest birch plywood with a amber shellac - but do they use 1/4 inch? Thanks.

Just purchased a beat up 12.5 foot camper with what looks like a "overhanging" 5th wheel arrangement. However, it pulls from a standard bumper hitch. It has absolutely no markings of the maker that we can see. Propane refrigerater and stove (brown) It does have the word "Ace" written in fancy letters and a fanned out hand of 4 aces with the ace of hearts in front" . Also it say (under the aces) "Travel co Alter, Maine" We have looked in depth but could use some help finding the maker.

We have a 1955 Cardinal Deluxe, and are stripping the old paint off. The original, we think, was aluminum with red. It has taken at least 100 man hours and still not done. Is there anyway you can share your brochure by scanning or describing the original paint/striping scheme. Anything would be a help. Thanks. Ken: email [email protected] <quoted text>

I have a trailer for just over 20 I bought to sleep in because of my night shift. the kids played in it and now I am restoring it. the problem is that I never had it taged! now that I am trying to the guy I bought it from a Lowes is where he house was. and I can not find a seral number. I went to the tag agance and they told me to turn it into the police and than I would have to bid on it at a police action to get a bill of sales? I was also told to take it down and get it weighted and if it is under 2500 I can clam it as home made here in Fla. does any one else have any ideas ?
