After a couple of months of waiting, I finally got an English copy of the owner's manual for the Predom Prespol N126. How do I get this posted on the site? I couldn't find a webmaster or "contact us" button. You can tell I'm a newby at this.

If I am not mistaken.. her trailer is more commonly known as a Cadet.. the Canadian version, anyway.

I'll work on the pictures tonight. The Predom Prespol was brought over to Canada in the late 80s and called the Captain (big model) and the Cadet (small model). Big and small is relative as the Captain is still only 10 feet long (without the hitch). They are still manufactured today in the same factory in Poland and sold in Europe and Asia, just not here anymore. Theoretically I could still get parts for it (for a price!!)

There are several layouts so the door is in different places depending on which interior you choose.

I've had it a year and could have sold it at least 4 times.

I just did a web search and I HAVE seen one! a good friend of mine owns one and I've camped right beside him. I knew it was european but the name plate is missing. I must say his is in tough shape too as he has to tarp it if it rains.

Hallo!
I have "medium model" it is model 126N. I can’t find US’ name of my trailer.

Cadet (126 B,D,E,T – maybe more letters but except N) those trailers have different layouts but the door is always in the same place. The English versions have of curse door on the left side because shell back to front is installed.

Length of Cadet is 9,5’ length - 288cm
Captain has 12’ = 360,5cm
And my 126N has equal 10’ - 305cm

The Cadet and 126N (“Freedom” or Polish name “Enka”)are still manufactured. You could get almost all parts for those trailers in Poland. In case of parts I thing is possible to send it to US.

If you need more details about Predom trailers (Polish name “Niewiadow”) I can find and write them.

By the way, do you know is it possible to make description on main page also about my trailer? I could send photos, descriptions etc.

I have the original manual for my Cadet 1988. It's basically 5 pages of 81/2 x 11 with some very basic information. I will scan and make available. I also have the stove, and heater manual. Lucked out in that the previous owner kept it all together.

Len, the document center software has been broken for months, but with the new software, members are going to be able to upload documents themselves. I know the Cadet manual will make a great addition! Be patient, it could take a couple of weeks until it's ready... or maybe sooner! Watch for an announcement later.

Cool!!

I have the documents scanned into pdf format now. If you want to send me your email address (PM me it), then I can send it out direct. It includes the main sheets for the cadet, furnace, thermostat, stove, and bargman converter wiring.

Saw your post concerning Cadet trailer. Any chance of getting a copy of that manual? Also what is the weight of one of these?
Thanks
Peter

Niewiadow

We were recently in Niewiadow selecting a small trailer to be purchased next year and decided to get N-126D. Our car there has 850kg towing capacity so this trailer at 650kg is well within car specs. We like the floor plan which is “similar” to our Bigfoot 21RB. The N0126D is about 3 times lighter and does not have as many features as our trailer here, but likely enough. We are looking forward to compare camping experience in US and EU.
George.

Now that's an interesting statement. I always thought that camper would look better with the slope at the front. So I searched the interwebs for such a pic or illustration with no result. If you have a pic of an English model that would be very cool!

In fact teardrop trailers are sloped in the back. Regarding polish trailers this reverse slope could have something to do with reverse polish notation………….. this is a joke for someone who had experience with HP calculators.
