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 ?

Hi! New here! I just bought a vintage camper trailer...1971 Lark. Has anyone ever heard of one or know where I might be able to take a peak at a manual? I am having a heck of a time finding anything like it, and I would love to see what it looked like back inthe 70's! I would like to finish refurbishing it, the original owner had started doing the walls, but I am getting ready to do the floor, seat cushions and stuff. I have never refurbished a trailer before, just a 1977 Itasca interior....and it turnedout so cute before the entire drive train took a dive!

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?

We purchased a 1970 BeeLine. I can find no information on the line of trailers other than the name of several models...I have come across a Hornet and a Bee both manufactured by BeeLine.

Since it has been a while since your original post, can you now add anything to the information you have?

I used your information about googling "vintage trailer" and came up with some better luck! Thanks! check out you may be able to find your vintage camper. I did not find mine, for it seems I went with a very unpopular name brand! But I am still looking for any information on a 1971 Lark if anyone has ever heard of one. I had seen one pic of a 1974 one...nothing really changed except for the color scheme.

I also just purchased a 13 ft trailer and would love to paint it soon. If you could email me any information your receive I would be very happy.
Thank You
I have a 65 Oasis and I've painted it some. I have only painted some of door panels, window casings, and front awning, and little vents to give it some character. It was all white - boring! She looks very cute now, BUT the white, oxidized paint on the aluminun needs help!

Hi, My father left my a 1959 oasis. I have been tring to find out info about it. I'm very interested and would love some feed back. Thank you, Tammy
I've had my 65 Oasis for about 2 years now and have done quite a bit to it to restore it. She's small, only about 11', single axle, but a great floor plan! Sleeps 4 easy (2 adults, 2 kids). This Oasis was well taken care of my a doctor who owned her most of her life, even installed an A/C at some point (nice!). it has the original oven/stove top and fridge - all working great! The heater had been yanked out, and a door/storage in it's place - which is fine by me. Original pink little sink (with small chip in it that I'd like to try to fix someday). Mine had brakes on it, too. Great big front picture window, which I love!!! What else can I tell you about her? Have you tried paining yours yet?
