Traveleze trailer

Hi I just got this Traveleze trailer and I was wondering if anyone on here could give me any info on it. I think it's a 66 but I'm not sure. I would love to know the square footage of these I believe it's a 14ft. This is my first trailer and I'm super excited to restore it. Any help and info would be greatly appreciated. Thank youClick image for larger version

Neat info.
Found this quote interesting:
"The Royalex body (some canoes are made from this) is lighter than metal, tougher than steel, and never rusts or corrodes. It is a great insulator too".

I had an Old Town Otter 13' canoe made from Royalex. It weighed a lot more than a comparable fiberglass canoe. If you bashed it on a rock, it left dents in the surface. A buddy wrapped his canoe around a rock and the Royalex stretched. Very difficult to repair. Don't know that the material is used for canoes any more.

Well, the information I read indicated they only made 100, or so, of these so you have a pretty rare trailer. Let us know how your project is going.

Mike I will post pics of the interior. It's a mess and need lots of TLC but I have seen worse. My understanding is everything in side is original except for the curtains. I have not decided if I want to keep it that way or change it.

I kinda figured it was rare because I can't find any info on it anywhere. I will post my journey.

Wow never saw this type of trailer before. It's probably rarer than mine, with similar size and floor plan, with a super vintage look!
I'd love to get my hands one one and restore it. Nice project!
Anybody ever saw one in Canada?

Other than the loose stuff, I'd say it looks pretty good. Some little repairs and cleaning will make a big difference. Paint on the cabinets will help. The stove looks nice and clean as if it wasn't used much.
