That is a beauty. I would think it is pretty rare too. Just read some history on Travelux on Tin Can Tourist site; Seems it was made in Canada- A?

Please post some inside pics- I would love to see how it was laid out.

Welcome!

A very nice 72 you've got there! We have a 20' 1973 that you can see if you look under "Travelux20" We bought it about 4 yrs ago in Belleville, Ontario and have been working on it ever since. I'm glad to say we're almost there! Our floor was also rotted in the front, kitchen side and bathroom so everything had to go. Your cabinetry looks in good condition based on your pics.

Thanks for the interior pics. Looks to be in beautiful shape; love to find them original like that

Same Avocado Green Stove as my '73 Argosy. My wife is really pushing to get rid of that since everything that used to match it has been replaced

After 37 years of camping; I have finally left my mental problem behind- that if you are camping, you need to be "roughing" it.

I have taken on the view that when Wally Byam was designing trailers he was innovating and using the latest technologies of the time.

So I installed the AC unit, gone all LED interior lights and just installed a Flat Screen in the front cabinet with a new Omnidirectional Antenna.

And the Biggie was taking an electric coffee pot with us the last trip (like we use at home), instead of cooking coffee on the stove

I understand and appreciate that the Original Wally Byam trailer being rebuilt on the forums right now should be restored to original- but for most of the rest of us; that old technology was left behind because it was inferior and wore out.

My humble opinion,
Shawn

Hi from Bathurst. If this thread is till active, i was wondering if this was the one in Bathurst. If it is , i spoke with you as you we're hooking it up. I have a 1971 23 Travelux which i am just about finished restoring. There was also one in Salisbury, don't know how that one is going.

I have a lot more pics during the reno ,if anyone is interested in a particular area that they are wondering about doing . All upinor pex plumbing. the trailer has a 30a gfci breaker panel, all led lights in and out. Still not done ,but it is being used between mods. happy trails!!!
