What kind of camper is this. It has a Bluebird emblem, (like the schoobus) made in Brantford,Ont. Does anyone have a clue of year and any other info. 14' Single axle, we have stripped the entire insides due to mice invasion and floor leak from old toilet. The entire camper has aluminum studding. It had a sink, stove/oven, booth with storage below, old formica table and beige woodgrain style paneling.
Any and all info would be appreciated. This camper has large windows and seems very spacious for it's size.
Any clues? I guess with aluminum studs it's not strictly an egg, but interesting nonetheless.

a QUICK 'net search gives the same Canadian town for the BlueBird bus company. And that is the same outfit that makes the BlueBird motor homes. SO... it is a REALLY good chance that this was an idea they floated for a bit.

Blue Bird Bus makes those big yellow school busses. Our city busses were Blue Birds, back when I was a kid, in the 40's.
By the look of the seams at the corners I would have to say that you have a metal covered, stick built trailer. I suppose the chances are that they diversified for a while as they could put them through on the same assembly line and use the same tools, except for finishing the interior.

Yes, I think you're right. At first glance I thought it was a molded fiberglass skin over an internal framework of aluminum studs for stiffness.

Never mind!

I sure do like the cross-ventilation!

Blue Bird is a US company in Georgia, started in 1927, and opened operation in CA in 1958. A former colleague of mine used to work in the Georgia plant.
