Jake, I am the inventor and original CEO of the company that founded and built the PlayPac(PlayPac Industries). Your model was one of the early ones 1972. Production stopped in '73 due to the Arab oil embargo. They were built in Dickson,TN. The model was called the "Hitch Hut" The model with the skylight was called the Super Hitch Hut. If anyone is interested in more history I'll be glad to share as I still feel that she's my "baby". Please go to "Chat with the inventor of the Playpac" if interested in the PP's history.
Steve

Hi Steven
We don't have to many builders on this forum. It's good to have you here.
Not just for Play Pac people, but for all of our inquireing minds. How many? How long did it take to make one? Family business or big industry? It's sometimes so hard to find history about these fiberglass trailers that anything you wish to share will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Jim

Yes that is true, Steve has let me know some information through PM that ties in with the research I've been doing on the history of the Boler American. His words have brought me to look at some things in a totally different way.

I was making some pretty good headway back in September until I was Summoned for Jury Duty. Now that that is over and done with, I hope to soon catch up on a few things before getting get back into the research. I'll post my findings in the boler history thread once I get some more of the pieces put together.

It would be nice if Steve would post everything he can tell us about the PlayPac in either this thread or start a new one. Once that is done, I will be able to link what he says to the Egg/boler history thread mentioned above.

Roy, Steven actually started a topic Chat with the inventor of the PLAYPAC, The history of the PLAYPAC. I've asked him to start the history discussion. We can always change the title, or add a subtitle to include "history." I'm thinking once we get these histories a bit more formalized, we should create a document and add it to the Document Center or maybe somehow put them with the particular brand in the albums... hummmm.

Thanks Donna,

I guess both Jim and I missed Steve's overnight post.

Is it possible to create a new forum in the "all about our ... trailers" with sub forums related to each type? Then sub class threads on models with the various changes and specs? We'll have to figure out to do this as a "wiki" within the boards software limitations.

Alternatively, is anyone here well versed enough with Wikipedia to create and maintain the various pages and links there?

Roy

Currently, we don't have anything available. But, other things are coming down the pike for FiberglassRV. Just be patient, change doesn't happen overnight... okay.
