U Haul CT 13 in Northwest Ga

Hello I'm Chris and I live in Northwest Ga and hope to be picking up a U Haul CT tomorrow.

I work for U Haul and have been for 8 Years now. Have 2 grown boys and a wife that has put up with me for the last 25 years.

Welcome! What do your co-workers know about the UHaul campers? Seems to be lost history at UHaul.

Well I have found alot of folks that remember the manufacturing of them at Peters St here in Atlanta. I can look by the CT # and see what the U Haul system still has to offer. Most of the ones I have looked up have the date that the unit was put into the fleet and some have more info than others. As far as more than that its all word of mouth.

There are still some of the parts avalible that will correspondents to some of our other units. Shoot me an e mail or a PM with the #s and ill see what I can find for you.

Thanks! I'm out of town for a few days, but appreciate your offer. Any idea what UHaul sold the trailers for ($$)?

Oooh somebody that may know something! We know when U-Haul started building trailers for rent: Fiberglass RV - Document Center - U-Haul Begins Travel Trailer Production then everything else about the history fell off a cliff! Even Mr. U-Haul ... Mr. Ray Horner didn't have a lot of the sale history.

The one Im looking at was put into service 12-01-1986. The price they were sold for was what ever they could get for them in that market. They were all sold local to where they were so its hard to tell. I will be asking around here in Ga to see whats still out there to find out. Some of the old timers are still around that might know something.

Welcome to the UHaul fiberglass family. Will you get an advertising fee when you drive it and have someone at every stop ask about it? We had at least 3 stops of folks in GA asking about our Uhaul as we drove to FL.

Any VT parts, Chris, like maybe windows?

Yea, I'd love to get a confirmation of the VT brake drum part number.

No windows. But can get 3 light bars, hubs, wheels, correct 13 inch tires. Those are a few off the top of my head.

Don't know about the Drums. They might be the same as our auto transporters. I can look around. Can someone send me a pic of the wheel on a VT. If its a 13 it should be the same as a 5x10 that is still in our fleet and parts are still available.

I looked at the car trailer and lug circle was bigger than 4.75" . Drum photo shows 10 holes, so maybe it fits two bolt circles??

We just purchased a 17 foot uhaul and know very little about them. Anything you could share would be appreciated. As soon as we get numbers will shoot them to you

Deb,

Welcome to the Uhaul family. We too have a VT (17' Uhaul). You have a RARE camper. There were only 200 made and about 15 accounted for right now. We are currently camping in ours in FL.

I hope you love it as much as we love ours. You might want to join uhaulcamper.com too. Not as much traffic; most of us are here too, but you will find lots of good info.

CindyL

@ Chris,

I know you still carry the VT wheel parts. We bought our hubs from a dealer who had two when one of ours blew and with dumb luck, we ended up at a UHaul dealer who happened to have two of the right kind in stock.

Here are images of the bolt pattern, hub, and tire (a new one, not an old one) from a VT, taken the day Kevin changed the broken hub for the new one.
