When you get the title then you'll know. Can't wait till tomorrow when you can tell us what you bought. I'd send you a picture of my 57 SanteFe, but they're too big to post on here. Wait I think I have a couple. Here's the 57.

i bet you figure it out once you get inside of it. i can't imagine there isn't a builders plate on the front street side of the unit.

another place to look would be on the A frame on the front. i has to have a vin on it somewhere.

unless of course it was home made!

Look inside the cabinets

Look in the cabinets for a builder's tag, or builder's plate. It may be on a galley cabinet door, or near the breaker (fuse) panel, maybe even on the door to the fuse panel. If you wind up with it, you can take out drawers and check under mattresses for identification.

That IS adorable! Very snazzy looking with it's white stripe. I can see why you want it. But wait, don't you already have two AS?

Closest I could come up with. It has the upside-down pyramid window & the horizontal ones in back:

HECK no, we only have our big A** girl Luna.. our 1967 Ambassador.. we're thinking we may want a short trip girl and a long trip girl.

Now if I can just figure out which would be which....

I'd guess 1962 maybe 63 due to the amount and style of Jalousie windows. Mid 60's Hams tended to start to square up more in profile. I'm not going to lose much money on this bet am I?

OK folks... I'll jump in here with a wild guess... It's a late '50s PONTIAC!!! Didn't you guys catch the hubcaps!?

Nah... I'll guess it's a mid-60s home built that used a Mobile Scout door and jalousy windows that were salvaged from other trailers.

I don't think I've ever seen a manufacturer use jalousy windows on the FRONT of a trailer... too much propensity to allow water to blow up through the glass in the front!

the type

Allrighty then, here's the scoop.. so far..

The title says Hennessey and it's a 1963.

It's NOT homemade, we BOUGHT it, (although are not droping off the check umtil tomorrow.. the seller says talk to the PO first; he knows we'll be happy) and tomorrow morning we WILL talk to the prior owner.

It's nice he's still available.

In the meanwhile, I have more pics from inside. Give me some time to get them ready...

This camper is SO CUTE! I will admit that Summerkid came up with the best info. That helped me get much better research done.

Thanks, SK!
