trails west Campmite?

Hello everyone im Henry. Im going to look at a 1971 nine foot CampMite fiberglass trailor. Its really hard to find information on these but it looks just like a Compact Jr. It has the pop up only over the galley area in the back of the camper. So was the CampMite made by Trailswest? If I buy it I will supply more information on it.
thankyou

Here is an old thread about them
CampMite trailer
and here is a thread about the heater, I think from that exact trailer that was for sale last year but sold before I got there. Good luck don't hang about!
Can anyone identify this heater?

The picture in that thread looks like a Campster. Never heard of a Campmite. What exactly would the difference be? Would nine foot be the trailer body size? (One foot smaller than Campster?) Or is it maybe really a Trail-mite? (Which doesn't really look at all like a Compact.)

So kootenaigirl thanks for the information. Do you remember how much they wanted to sell it for or the price it went for. Their asking 2000$ for it now.
thankyou

Here are some pictures of an old Trailswest project trailer which we had a couple of years ago. Notice it says "CampMite" on the back.

I am not not 100% sure but think maybe around $1300 - I know it seemed like a good deal.

Hmm, maybe it was a slight variation on the Campster- the name suggests smaller?

Well im the new onwer of a 1971 nine foot fiberglass Campmite. I dont see kind of Trailswest label on it or the title and it was made in Washington. It has both the front roof supports on the inside running from just before the popup down to the front window and then another that runs from the passenger side window across the roof to the driverside window. It also has the center frame member underneath the galley in the back.
