An aluminum INFANT....Help. please

Has anyone ever heard of a "Hoppy"??? It's aluminum and as CUTE as HAIL !

I will probably buy one tomorrow.. it's tinier than a Bambi, I think.

I can't find any info on the brand, though.... does anyone know anything?

The one we are looking at is a 1963.

Well, I know my husband thought we were looking at a "Hoppy" when we bought our 1957 SanteFe. The level on the side said "Hoppy". That's the brand name of those RV levels.

THank you.. Juel!

It DOES say Hoppy above the level! I have no idea WHY it needs a level; it's only about a foot long!

Now I'm at a FULL loss because i don't see anything else on the outside of trailer.

Darn! Did I think of that?

NO. It may be too late today to get pics, plus it's on private property.

Hang tight...

Looks like an old Scotty or possibly a Shasta...but during the time frame it was most likely built there were a multitude of small time trailer builders. If it is in good shape and you want it....BTW they were called Canned Ham campers The key is going to be the odd shaped door window. The more I look I don't think Shasta....wrong door window for the Scotty...let us know what you find out on Monday

It's not a Shasta, but it MIGHT be a Scotty. It's VERY clean and original.
