Hello from NorCal

My name is Mark I recently bought a fiberglass camper trailer but other then a tag with numbers I have no idea who built it or when. If its ok I would like to take a few pictures and post them with any numbers and such to see if anyone can help me to ID the camper for me? I have a bill of sale from the seller and he owned it for 12 + years and used it for hunting/fishing. Thank you all, Mark

Welcome, Mark!

Yes, we love the challenge of identifying an unknown make. Try to include the exterior from angles that show all four sides. Interior shots are nice too, but the details of the molding of the shell distinguish the various makes.

Enjoy your new treasure!

I posted pictures and here is some other info:

10 feet long x 75" tall x 70" wide
there is a section about the kitchen /entrance that can rise up approximately 15 inches and has canvas with screen. The refrigerator has a ice tray area with a tiny ice tray in it. Sleeps two, two burner stove top, and a small gas furnace. No AC. Again Thank you, Mark

sorry for so many posts but I found the numbers

I found my notebook I started for the trailer. The numbers are S0515
then further down it says DA 296883
the same tag says State of California but the rest is very hard to read. Thank you and feel free to ask me anything about the trailer. I plan of a few changes and modifications to the original design. I am a disabled veteran and my wife and I are hoping to tow this trailer behind my modified Astro van across country to the New England area I am from Maine originally and we have relatives in both Maine and New Hampshire.

I'm not seeing your pictures, but based on your description it sounds like it could be a Trailswest Campster.

When posting photos, make sure you're using the paper clip icon. Also make sure the upload is complete before you hit send. It can take a while for large-format pictures.

canvas/screening for raised roof area?

Anyone know where I can get the canvas with screen materials for the section of the roof that raises up? Also need the wheel bolt pattern to replace the wheels and get a spare wheel and tire. Is it possible to install an AC unit on the roof? If I have to buy materials and make a new top where do i get the materials. Do most camp sites have toilets/showers? Thanks in advance.Mark

Most any upholstery shop could make the boot (as the canvas is called), or you could even attempt it yourself if you can get access to a HD sewing machine. Try to salvage as much of the old as possible to use as a template. Order Sunbrella or similar outdoor fabric online or look for a local fabric outlet store.

EDIT: Got a look, and it does appear to be a Trailswest Campster. You can use the "Manufacturers" tab at the top and the “Site Search/Google” option in the search menu to locate more information about them and the company that made them. If you got this for $600 as the photo suggests, you got a steal!

Or, if you want people to see your photos, along with the text, post them in your message. Many, like me, aren't going to go looking for them.

Just to confirm, it sure looks like my Trailswest Campster. That tag next to the door knob should have some useful info. Thats where my serial number is located.

Any upholstery shop or boat top shop should be able to help with a new boot. Take off your old one carefully so you can use it as a template

I don't think the roof or the electrical system will support A/C. We just have a fan, but we are in Washington. As much as we traveled with our Casita, we almost never needed air. You will find with the Campster that you will spend most of your time outside.

Appears to be in about the same shape as a Compct II I bought for $800. I gutted it, took it off the frame, painted the frame and exterior, and then sold it. My wife ran out of patience and bought us a new Scamp 16. Good luck.
