Fiberglass Pop-up !!!

One of my friends spotted this at the RV Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana.
It's called out as a fiberglass pop-up. No inside pics, but I'll have to check it out in the spring. Pretty sweet!!

Less than 200 ever made by Hille Engineering of California . First all fiberglass body trailer. Unique slide out rear bed. Upper bunks and wooden support sides are owner modifications to make unit fit his family.

We have had members here on FiberglassRV owning Rangers. I saw one in the flesh at the Unfinished Nationals several years back.

Yup Fred thats Eddie S. 1954 Sport Ranger. He does attend most fiberglass meets and vintage rallies here in BC and in Washington. He has had it since 1994. It was changed from green to brown a couple of years ago to match his tow vehicle & he made a very cool rack for the back of it this year.

Here are a few more photos of Eddie's trailer as well as a another Sport Ranger in red/orange I took a photo of at the Lynden Vintage rally a couple of years ago. It had a great restore job done on it. If I recall correctly the trailer had been in the same family since new.
