Hi I am a new owner of a 32' Travelux camper . ist an Airstream look a like. but I can't seem to find out any info on them . All I know is it was built in Canada. Can anyone help. By the way very nice web site. I hope to learn a lot from you all...
Welcome to the forums kino-schmid. I can't answer your question but I do note that the Search function here gives 5 threads when you search on the word travelux. I don't know that you'll find much here but it's a start. We can only hope that others with actual knowledge will chime in. Glad you found us!
There is a lot of similarity in Airstreams (and any RV) over time. The industry has pretty well stuck with the same modular sizes for HW heaters (6 & 10 gal), fridges, and kept furnaces quite compact. Updating to a modern convertor-battery system and maybe PEX piping -- the lists become endless. You might have to invent when it comes to checking out or modernizing your brakes, shocks, axles and tires. Questions are okay but we might have our limits when it comes to Travelux particulars. I wouldn't expect much similarity on frame issues.
I just googled on 'travelux trailer' and got a number of returns -- but I suppose you've done this. Wonder if any online Canadian group exists?
HISTORY FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND INFO. GATHERED OVER THE YEARS. A gentleman by the name of Mr. Wragge, apparently started the Caravel Coach Company (manufacturer of Travelux trailers) at 15 Jutland Drive, Toronto in 1966. The manufacturing began the next year in an industrial complex in Aurora (north of Toronto). I purchased my 22' Travelux in 1967 from Russell Church Mobile Homes in Barrie Ontario. It came with the incorrect appliance/coverings color and the trailer was returned to the factory for the correct color. At this time I learned" bits and pieces": of related info. from various sources. The units were based on the U.S. Avion model. All units were completely assembled in Ontario with all the usual components....ie: Kelsey Hayes running ear/Dometic/Duo Therm etc. The trailers were overbuilt with 5" frames, and quality cabinetry and workmanship. The business was successful until the late 70's when I was told that a large order from overseas resulted in some financial problems and the company ceased operation. It was subsequently started again in the small town of Bradford. I found a very small shop with some construction and many parts...but a shadow of the former operation. I went back a few years later and it had disappeared. MY TRAVELUX EXPERIENCE: The trailer is very well built. It has been pulled over 100,000 miles by Chryslers and Fords. Mexico/Florida/California and the east coast of Canada and the U.S. It tows beautifully (2860 lbs) and has been trouble free. We no longer use the trailer and a recent RV Trader ad produced numerous enquiries and an asking price sale. I still have the original manual/documentation.
P.S. For the interested poster......Original name plate was yellow lettering on a black background.
Hi all, I am new here and registered to share Travelux information, my family owns a 1973 Travelux 31 foot President model we have owned since 1975 when we bought it from the dealer-owner. It is very sturdy with a triple 5 inch frame, we had the interior removed to replace the floor and then reinstalled everything. The private park it has been in for 28 years is closing for good and it is for sale. It is located in Nova Scotia, Canada just out side of Lunenburg. It has privacy glass and is the same floor plan as in the brochure posted in this thread. I have photos and all original manuals for the systems and brochure. Please contact me at [email protected] or by phone (902) 445-5916 or days (902) 450-3613. My father takes very good care of his stuff and has collected antique cars for years and is very fussy and the trailer is in very good condition.
