Apache Mesa -

Of course, I've never seen one of THESE. At first I thought it might have a pop-up top like a Compact, Trails West, etc. But now it looks as if that's the full ceiling height, with no pop-up top, but the Slide-outs...don't actually slide-IN but fold up to connect with the main rectangular unit.
Or am I BUILDING a completely different trailer?
I wonder if the slide-out idea came from this early traler model...

My husband's employee bought one of these last summer. As I understand his description, it is a pop-up camper with hard sides instead of screens.

I know this is an old thread, but I just spotted it. Apache Mesa was my first camping trailer. We used it for over 20 years. Leaked along all seams when it rained. And it was heavy-the lower portion was all aluminum-much heavier than my 16' Scamp. Bought it for $900, sold it 20 years later for $1000. The adult kids wished I still had it.

I went to look at one before I found the Scamp. IMO, they are a PITA to set up.

I am sure that the A-liner is easier to set up than the old Apache's. The one I looked at was a lot easier to set up with two people. I guess I wanted an upright fiberglass egg more than a pop-up.
