Thank you, I will check it out. I couldn't believe I found a fiberglass so close to my house. I will check it out later. God Bless.

I have no idea of the history with the Ventura, but looking at it, it looks a later model than mine. It has flared wheel wells, and the windows aren't louvered. The door looks rounded which mine is flat. Nice looking, hopefully they will consider selling it good luck.

This one was at the Emily gathering near Peterborough Ont. a couple of times. It has a different window again and your flares look good. I don't think there were an awful lot made compared to some other brands. Good luck getting it I don't think you would regret it.

From the looks of the pictures the camper is not in that good of shape on the inside. What do you think a ventura camper that is in good shape would be worth?

Also it has a shower. Is this normal for these?

actually, it might well be a PlayPac. Compare to my Avatar. The windows are the same. I don't remember seeing a Ventura with those windows, but it could be.

The inside of mine was stripped. I'm rebuilding it and having a ball.

Do you have more pictures you can share with us? It might help with the questions.

On edit. My research on this trailer has indicated that the glass bubble mine has was an upgrade on the high end model. This could be an example of the bubble less one.

I believe Bonnie is correct, and I stand corrected.

The windows are for a Play Pac

Its confusing.. I just realized we have a Bonnie W with a Ventura, and a Bonnie with a Play Pac..

they are almost identical IDs here, and almost the same rig...

My brain hurts!!!

That's a PlayPac. Jake, if you have it that makes six of us on the site.

Would you be able to take a couple of pictures of how the bathroom/dressing room door is connected to the trailer? That sorta has me stumped.

Here's my PlayPac Renovation Thread.

Here the direct link to the Sales Manual I was provided by another PlayPac owner.

Yo Donna!
That brochure should be added to the Document Centre if someone has time.

Jake,

Did you get the trailer? I've seen worse! Doesn't look that bad via the pictures you've shared!! Buy it and give it a try! Worst you could do is buy it, clean it up, and sell it to put money toward another trailer!!

Good luck!!

Thanks for all of the help. I haven't bought it yet, I am having a hard time getting a hold of the owner. I found in on Craig's list and all I have is his email. I think that at the price that he is asking I could make a little cash on the project if I don't like the camper. Thanks again for all of your help. This site is great!

God Bless,
Jake <><

Already ahead of you James. I've downloaded it and will see about getting it (and others!) uploaded over the weekend.
