Hello Cam.I am a new member & when I came across your post re the Leocraft, I thought I would give you some info that I have about the trailer. My wife and I found our 1979 17ft leocraft 4 yrs ago in Stratford Ont Can. I searched awhile before finding info on the trailer. Briefly, a co.called Monarch Industries built the trailer in the '70s near Winnipeg Manitoba. They built 3 sizes: a 13ft fiberglass rv , a 17ft model, and 2 sized motorhomes. The co was eventually bought by Triple E. Monarch is still around but not in the rv bus anymore. Not sure exactly when they stopped production of Leocraft. I have seen 2 other trailers but they have the other floor plan. Our model has the corner washroom / your pictures are of the side washroom model. The trailer is very similar to the 17ft Bigfoot, especially now since Bigfoot redesigned theirs inside & out. We did alot of work to ours but it was worth it.I hope to post pictures in the near future.There is alot more to tell but I hope this reply was beneficial for you. If I can help with anything more let me know. Dennis

It would be interesting to hear if that side door is for a wet bath or just a closet. I like the wood look in an interior, even if it is that faux-wood-finish paneling. Pretty neat trailer! If it were not so far away from Oklahoma I'd be interested myself.

Hello Michael! Just replying to your question re the Leocraft. First, We have seen & been inside both 17ft models.The side washroom models we saw both had a molded 1pc fiberglass interior the same as the 17ft bigfoot if you know what I mean.The cabin interior side washroom models both had a light cream laminate interior.Our corner washroom model was all done in a woodgrain interior including the washroom.Our model had a dry weight of 2950lbs with a tongue weight of 310 lbs.We made some renovations such as putting 1 tank on the front -removing the battery from the tongue & placing it under back bunk to lighten hitch weight. No need for equalizer hitch or even sway bars - pulls like a dream.If you want more info let me know. Dennis

Just wanted to make a correction to my response re the Leocraft rv. Leocraft Industries was a subsiduary owned by Monarch Industries. I got that info from the original glossy brochure sent to me by Triple E. They were able to find a brochure in their archives for me and were kind enough to send it to me during my search for info about the trailer. It is my understanding from a sales rep at Triple E that it was Leocraft Industries that was taken over by Triple E. That is as much as I know. Maybe someone else may have additional info that they can add.

There are a few Leocrafts around... a couple in BC that I know of ... actually someone pulled one out of a farmers field near Mission a couple of years ago.

The trailer was gone the next time I was in town, and no one answered the door the next three trips.
