Avalair Info

Hi all,

I am new to this forum as of today. I have just purchased an Avalair and there is not much info that I have been able to find. Any info would be appreciated. I have attached a photo. The lenght (rough measurement is 23'). The floor will need complete repacement along with some walls. I will be back for more advice on this.
Also, please excuse me if I have not posted correctly, my first try.

Thanks

When I was a kid in the late 50's ,early 60's my Dad loved to travel. On the road we saw many Airstreams, Streamlines, Avions, etc and some Avalairs. They were rare but out there. Good luck with your project.

Looks like a neat project, and a rare brand of trailer. I have never seen one - were they made in Canada?

A unique trailer and there's not a lot of information around on the marque. Here's a link to the tct that offers a bit.

avalair [DokuWiki]

We'd like to see your progress so keep us posted on your progress.

Regards,

They look a lot like the Canadian made Travelux but I am sure the Avalairs were US built.

Hi,

Mine, and I think all were made in Michigan. This one has New Brunswick plates as that is where I found it.
