1974 Venture

Here is my 1974 Venture trailer. Since I purchased it 2 years ago, I have installed new floor, ceiling, ceiling vent, redone the frame, new tires, window cranks, cleaned inside & out, electric fridge (will be putting in 3 way fridge soon), battery & battery box. I originally purchased it for Hunting & Fishing, now we travel with it- using a 4 cylinder car
Looking forward to attending the Vintage Trailer Rally in St Martins NB July 27-29.

I wonder how many Venturas were produced - more of them seem to be coming out of the woodwork this year.

We had never heard of them when we got ours last year, but I guess they are not all that rare after all!

Looks like a very nice trailer Russell!

I am curious if you could elaborate a bit on a few things:

1. The floor - we replaced the piece in front of the door as it had rotted due to the old door leaking - would have liked to replace all of it, but it just seemed extremely hard to get it out without dismantling most of the interior. How did you go abot it?

2. The frame. We have not done anything to the frame on ours as it appears sound. What did you do on yours?

3. Window cranks. All need to be fixed on ours. Did you replace, or find a way to fix?

Our story is similar to yours - we purchased it solely to have a place to sleep when we go fishing, but it looks more an more like we may end up hauling it around, exploring.
