I think the previous poster is right, and it was made around 1980. It seems those particular ones had much in common with the 17's in terms of interior, etc.
PS: You can check the "sold" archives to get an idea of asking prices and see photos; although there isn't anything to tell you what the actual selling price was.
You are probably rigth on this one.
I own a 1980 made by Vanguand trailers in BC.
The spec sheet is inside the cabinet in mine, plus the serial number out the door if I remember well.
When comparing to "Most" bolers:
- there is no drop in the floor, the plywwod floor sits flush on top of the frame
- the plywood floor has no fiblerglass under (I will tell you this winter about the inside and the durability of it... when I will rebuils the interior to my needs/liking
- leaf spring suspension
- wooden interior furniture
- rounder slider windows
; the driver side window should be wider than usual, coming in front of the sink, rigth to the stove; so the above cupboard is not as high
- mine had a 14" vent centered on top
- the fresh water tank is inside the passanger side dinette bench.
- the insulation is about 3/8" thick, looking like a low-density cushion foam with a painted skin on it; it is more textured than the ensolite I checked in other Bolers
- the coupler is a 5000lbs rated one with a 2" ball; I dont know if it is usually on a 1 7/8" or a 2" tough... maybe it is not different after all ;-)
For another one with the same frame, suspension, windows
