'66 Avion T24 general help

I bought this camper for $600 an its pretty good body wise, interior is decent minus 2 soft spots in the floor, bed cushions missing an bench seats on the right side of the door when you walk in are missing. I have no idea how this camper is operational. The battery is missing an the the wires are a mess in the battery box. Is there anyone with pics of the bed setups, inside the battery box, an if the camper has bunk beds what that looks like. Thanks Ben

I think it had a dinette in the front and a fold out bed in the back.

My table is there for the dinette but no bench seats. By the doorway to the bedroom there is some kind of pockets on either side of the door what are those for?

Without pictures I would guess they may be magazine racks or something of the sort. Jim

Might be a 1967

Believe that the Mor-Ryde suspension, as those pics show, began in 1967?

You got a deal if the shell is in as good a shape as it appears.

The rest can be replaced!

Mine is a T-27, but............

Link to my 1966 (DMV title and data plate shows '66 - link states '65) T-27 renovation pics:

https://picasaweb.google.com/1174053...1194/1965Avion

The battery box on the front originally had a F3-ET sized battery in it - like this:

Exide Heavy-Duty Farm Battery, F3ET - Tractor Supply Co.

The battery box only had a few wires that ran into the front curbside of the coach where the convertor and 12 VDC fusebox was. The 120 VAC fusebox was in the rear streetside.

Nice!

The old registration from the previous owner says 66. I was at cabelas an they has a small marine type battery that was 4x4x 15" small long battery for $30. I will take pics in the next day or so. We're getting a bit of now right now an I just emptied my 73 apache mesa's contents into this because I thought it was sold an they never took it.

Year?

Check the "Avion" dataplate - usually to the right of the entrance door and your's appears to be to the right of the patio light. (as mine is)

For this year range, the first 2 digits of the serial number are the year, then usually a dash, then the rest of the number. Model number will be there as well.

Year on titles varies a bit........................I would bet yours is at least a 1967 model.
