Isn't that Bill Boone's old Play pac? You bought it from him didn't you? Great! Now we can get more photos! Do you live in NW GA?

Hey! i sure did. can't find a nicer guy than Bill. I was looking for a Play Pac for a while when he put it on ebay. did the 'buy it now price' immediately. He sure did alot of nice things to it. Very solid. I live in Cartersville, right on I-75 about half way between Atlanta and Chattanogga. Probably spelt that wrong. Will add some pics as soon as i can.

Thought I'd check status on the ownership of the Play Pac TT. Everybody (6-7 of you.) still own your Play Pac? Any new owners out there? I'm in the process of purchasing a 73 play pac and doing some research. Its in need of a bit of work. I did found out one thing. There is VERY little information out there on the Play Pac. Anybody have any links to sites that discuss the PP? Or maybe a good site that goes into detail on how to restore a TT in general.Thanks....

For that I would recommend this board! It's a great resource for restoring any fiberglass "egg" trailer, such as your new Play Pac ( and congrats!).

You can try searching, and if you don't find what you are looking for, well, sometimes I just go to either the "Problem solving" or "Modifications" sections and just start paging through, clicking on whatever looks interesting (note that you can jump to a certain page number, so you can pick up where you left off the previous night at 4 a.m. ).

Note that although there are some things exclusive to each brand of trailer; there are also a great many things that apply to any brand, so you may glean some excellent info from "non Play Pac" threads as well.

Hi Woody. The original brochure (retyped) is in the document center on this board.

We are blessed to have the originator of the Play Pac as a member of this board. You can follow his discussion here:

Sorry group, the Document Center, Albums and Helpful-Links are all currently offline. The software upgrade has caused some linkage problems We're hoping to get everything fixed soon.

Thanks for the welcome... I should be picking up the little guy tomorrow night. I was very surprised that only about 75 of the Play Pac TT were produced and there may only be a handful left. My first project is to get the door fixed. The lower part of the door sticks out about 1" from the frame. Not really sure if I can sorta bend it back or what. Will do some more checking when I get the PPTT in my hands.

I picked up the little guy last night. Now I can say I'm a proud owner of a Hitch Hut. Here are a few Pics. My 2 year old little girl loves it. She calls it the "Little House". Overall its in good shape. Just needs a few items taken care of. Does anybody know what the general value may be on the HH? I'm curious as to if I got a good deal. Wont state what I paid till I get a reply. Don't want to look bad if I overpaid.....

Noticed that after I got home. The spare tire on the rear was only inches off the ground. Going to buy a low mount hitch Friday. Today Im pulling EVERYTHING out of the trailer that is not bolted down to see what Im working with. I also want to get under the trailer to sand and repaint the frame. I would really appreciate it if somebody could send some pics of the interior of there HH. I would like to make mine more self contained. Such as add a water heater or at least a water tank, maybe a shower. There is no stove in my HH, so I need to add that. I need to get an idea where to install a water tank and the water heater if I get one. If somebody would like to email me some pics, that would be great. My addy is: WoodyRVT1000 [at] AOL dot com
Thanks.....

Do you have any pictures of your insides? The tanks, if I remember, were bolted under the trailer in the spaces above the frame. My PP didn't have anything when I got it. Slowly rebuilding. The link below is to that thread.

Yes, the kitchen was a redo. (The redo needs a lot of work.) . Im going to redo the kitchen and I would like to redo the walls. At the moment I just want to fix the couple leaks and the bottom of the door. It sticks out like a inch to far. Any idea how to fix this?
Thanks....

It seems to be a support issue. My plan is to support the wall on either side of the door and that should fix the issue. One other thing i noticed is the hinge may need work/replaced. That might actually be easier. Some people have used the rubber pipe covers to seal around the door opening and it closes the gap nicely. There are lots of options.

So, if you own a Play Pac, however you spell it and you want to own up. Post here.
we just purchased 1973 playpac,we live in Panama city Fl. and looking for other ones in the area,any help would be great,Thanks,jim&Donna

Meghan thank you so much for the photos! I think your camper is as original as can be except for the window in your door. Mine even has the very same curtains so they have got to be original also. Wonder if any of the other owners have those same curtains?

I've just purchased my Playpac in the last few weeks and am currently looking for a fiberglass person that can do some support work on my roof.

Did you say where you are?

I notice the vent for the fridge is in the front. I have been struggling to come up with a better way of doing the same thing as I worry water and air would be driven straight in and make a mess of things. Are you able to have the fridge on while towing and is there any mess from water or wind?

Love the trailer, especially the skylight.
