This quote came from Wikipedia online about the PlayPac:

"Fiberglass body construction entered the U.S. scene in 1971 with the introduction of the first U.S.-produced mini travel trailer, called the Playpac. The Playpac, invented by Steven Whysel, was the answer to the needs of the growing horde of VW "Bug" and other small-car owners who wanted a hard-shelled camper, light enough to be pulled by a small car, with a private water closet, shower and the ability to sleep six. Its ultramodern aerodynamic styling and domed skylight by the modernist Industrial Designer Toshihiko Sakow made it an instant hit. It was short-lived, however (1971–1973), as the first Arab oil embargo and the ensuing major slow-down of RV sales caused it to cease operations."

A PlayPac manual can be downloaded in the document center. Here is the direct link to it!

Kurt, have you tried selling this on Ebay? With the photos you have and that description, I am sure that you would get more than a best offer over the low $4000.00 range. Odd and Rare items sell well on Ebay due to more exposure. I have a Burro listed on Ebay and have had 850 views in 20 hours. Don't sell your camper short, if it is as nice as it looks, it will do well on Ebay. Just my opinion!

Drooling. But, alas, I don't have the money to add to my fleet. I have studied the pictures and it's wonderful to see a PlayPac in original condition/configuration. Sigh.,

Mark,

I'm considering puting it on ebay yet tonight! I just don't know if it will hit the $5000 mark or not.

Bonnie,

You sure you don't want another one? Just think, you could be the only person that has two of them!!!! And your close being in Illinois.

Kurt, you can put a reserve on it, but I prefer no reserve. Buyers would rather know that someone is going to own it at the end of the auction and bids tend to be higher for a no reserve auction compared to a reserve auction.

I agree with Mark's comment regarding an auction with a reserve vs an auction with no reserve.

For example, your auction & Mark's auction end within 24 hours of one another I believe... since his auction has no reserve, I'll probably bid more aggressively on his because I know it will sell no matter what.

Just my 2 cents!

Between the two of your auctions, hopefully I'll have a new trailer this weekend!

Tim,

I am 6 ft tall and if I remember, I can stand up in it. I will see if I can get you a measurement tomorrow.

Regarding the reserve price, my reserve is not unreasonable, so hopefully it won't hurt the auction. Either I would have to have a high starting price or have my reserve otherwise I couldn't let it go for less than the offer I have on it. We'll just have to see what happens.

Thanks for the info though!
