I recently purchased this 1962 CamPact unit and I am wondering if anyone may have some helpful info on this unit. Anything you may have that could lead me to the details of this trailer would be greatly appreciated. You can contact me by email at jbrown99703[at]yahoo.com or you can call me at 907-227-4858.

Thanks

Nice unit. It looks like a FG tear drop.

Neato! I've never seen one of those before.

Edit: Although I did find a previous thread showing one:

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/index.ph...amp;hl=teardrop

Not much information except this photo (apparently there was a link to another post mentioning an eBay auction, but the referrals don't seem to go back that far).

Well, this brought out the sleuth in me. I have found where someone mentions the "Camp-Act" teardrop in a discussion about the feasibility of making new molded fiberglass teardrops.

In the early '60s there was another boat-on-top "Trailerboat" and the just-discovered predecessor to the '80's Rovel-plastic Teardrop American, the "Camp-act".

Here's a link to the whole discussion, although none of the rest of it is about the Campact at all.

I think that you can have fun bringing it back to life. Would make a great little traveller for cross country tripping. Put up a dinette over the rear kitchen and you've got it made.

Old post but this reminds me of the "NOMAD" trailer my family had back in the '60s. My brother and I used to take it to race tracks (Mosport, St. Jovite, Watkins Glen, etc.). When the tent was deployed we'd be sitting there with a boat and no water in sight.

Ummmm..., Jason probably won't answer you because he's only had three post, all of them in 2009 and hasn't been back since that original thread inquiry. Sorry.
