The I.D. plate below says "Hawaiian Gardens, California, Centralia Road... image copied from this thread.

So which was/is it- California or Washington????



They were made in Hawaiian Gardens, California. As the crow flies that address is about a 2 miles from me. I think it was an auto repair place the last time we went looking.

Hello. We just became first time owners of a fiberglass trailer. We have a lot to learn! We have a 1973 Minit, number S 159. We would love to hear from others that may have a Minit or know more about them. Ours came with some original paperwork which I'm posting pictures of. Click image for larger version

Sorry I never responded! Yes, my camper was made in California, Hawaiian Gardens. The guy I bought it from years ago told me it was made in Centralia, WA, so I just ASSumed that was the case... until I took a long, hard look at the engraved plate. Anyway, I appreciate your pointing that out.

Need some Help

My wife is getting a MiniT from her Aunt - we are going to pick in up in a few weeks. I'm looking for any info on them. Specifically exterior dimensions.

I'm trying to fit it in a garage.

Are there different sizes? Models? are they all the Same. I would love to find an owners manual if there is one out there. unfortunately I have only seen pics of the trailer so I do not know what year it is.

They are one of the many 13' Boler clones. OEM exterior height typically runs right around 7', but after so many years, any number of changes could affect the height one way or the other. Nothing for it but to measure and find out. In some cases, all that's needed is letting some air out of the tires and/or a little strategic raising and lowering of the tongue jack. If you need a few inches, some have replaced the stock wheels with 8" rims for storage, with or without tires, or even homemade wood donuts, to fit into a standard 7' garage (which may not be exactly 7', either).

There's a little information here: Minit Trailers
There don't appear to be any manufacturer documents in our Document Center, but you may be able to find operating manuals for specific appliances by searching the make and model.

Yay! Another Minit Owner. I have the original sales sheet, which I posted - hopefully you can see in this thread? The owners manuals I have are for the icebox and the stove. I think there is only one model and all seem to have been made between 1972-1974. The sales brochure I have says “Minit 1974 lightweight travel trailer” and the original registration is 1973. During my research, something tipped me off to Perris Pacer - I think in 1974 Perris Pacer shared the Minit name. Looking at the 1974 Perris Paver Renovation on this site by “Fredomatic” their Perris Pacer looks just like my Minit (the gold color exterior, ensolite, tail lights, windows...) made by Beta Industries in Hawaiin Gardens, CA which I believe is close to where the Perris Pacer was made?

Dimensions: 7'-2” Tall, 13’-8” Long (tongue to tail) and 6'-6” wide. It used to fit in the garage but I had the axel professionally adjusted and now I don’t “bottom out” on the driveway, and it doesn’t fit through the garage door. The tongue is short - I have 29”.

We LOVE our Minit. Please post pictures of yours when you get it. I look forward to hearing about your Minit!

West Coast Carrie - Is there any chance you would be able to email (activelogic@att.net) the pictures of the original sales sheet. After I download them - they are a bit distorted. It appears under specifications length is 13', height 6'8" width 6'8". I know you had posted 7'2" was that after you modified the axel? I know her Aunt had a new axel put on - so that may possibly change the height some as well. We are headed to pick it up in 2 weeks. May 4-6th. I'll put pictures up after we get it. It will be great if I can get it through the garage door without too much fuss. Thank you for all the info. Rick

My 1973 Minit is not the same as any other I have seen or as listed in the brochure shown. No furnace or electrical at all inside. No tanks for water either. I hope these pictures show.
