eBay Link (Listed as a 1970 Scamp or Casita Travel Trailer)

I find it funny the seller has 30 years in the biz, but the ad says it's a scamp or casita.... maybe it's his 1st egg.

Hmmmm, looks like one of the MANY Hunter siblings. I would say it's not a Compact Jr because the poptop doesn't run the entire length of the trailer, just the rear 1/2 or so. Maybe a TrailsWest Campster? Any TrailsWest owners want to voice an opinion here?
It does look very nice inside, honestly it looks like he overbuilt it. Well, hopefully whoever buys it joins our merry band of fiberglass people here, huh? hehe

The seller says:
NOTE: The title on this trailer say's it's a [b]FTWD. Utah has a way of abbreviating "Makes" of trailers so I don't exactly know what brand this is.

So the middle initials could be [b]Trails [b]West.

I also think the DMV person just put the 1st thing down that came to them, because it looks to me like DMVspeak for:
[b]Flee[b]TWoo[b]D

I'd say Campster based on the poptop mechanism and the profile, but it has been redone inside. (I'm a bit suspicious of whether the inside pics are the same trailer as the outside, though, looks a bit too roomy, unless in the redo they changed the bed to a twin or 3/4.)

Those pics did look awfully roomy/spacious huh? Glad for your input there Bobby, yeah, from your pics as well as others, I kind of got the Campster feel from it. Either way, probably not a bad little trailer, just WAY out of my price range...hehe

When the solid walls around the galley are replaced with spindles and you have a clear view from the door to the front you definitely get a more spacious appearance. Hmmmm.
