Need Help Identifying Make and Model Of This Fiberglass Tent Camper Trailer

I purchased this very "Vintage" Fiberglass Tent Camper Trailer in Texas a couple of weeks ago at the Pate Swap Meet.

Was told the couple who previously owned and used the tent pulled it behind their motorcycle. Obviously it could also be pulled by most any car or truck.

There are no identifying plates, numbers or anything that I can find on the trailer. There is the remnants of a "Flying Bird" type of logo as shown in the pictures.

The trailer shell is molded fiberglass with a complete opening top and a rear opening door for entrance to the tent when the camper is set up. The trailer is a "Transformer" if you will. The trailer shell dimensions folded up are 48 inches by 65 inches. When folded opened the tent floor measures 60 inches by 77 inches. The trailer has a single axle with a single leaf buggy spring, 12 inch tire/wheels and no brakes. The ball size is 1 7/8 inch. There is a single shaft tonque on the trailer. The fiberglass shell sits on a wood board that is bolted to to the trailer frame. The trailer frame also has four (4) folding stabilizer legs to stabilize the camper when the tent is setup. The trailer has a rear opening lockable door with rear tailight's and turn signals.

I have 2 tent covers for this camper. One is a tent cover that is most all screen mesh for bug control. The second tent cover could/would mount over the screen mesh cover to provide shelter from the weather/rain if needed. Both are in pretty good condition with a couple of small repairs needed.

Does ANYONE have any idea as to who the manufacturer of this neat fiberglass tent trailer might be or have any personal experience with a trailer like this one?

I look forward to your help and responses!

Older version of the Travelite. The lid becomes the roof of the setup camper.

Motorcycle campers like this one were the less desirable models as they took quite a bit of time to set up. The more desirable ones are like the Bunkhouse model that set up in seconds.

Looks like you are right as it does look to be an older "Travelite".

Now that I know what to look for in an internet search I can figure out how to set up the tent part.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

For people with minimal tow ratings the motorcycle pop ups can make s good choice!

I've been riding motorcycles for over 45 years and when on trips the only way to get a good nights sleep, is MOTEL.
