The history of Trail-Mite Campers ,their origin and any degree of detail about their operation seems to be missing, but desired, by those owning or interested in Trail-Mites.
Here is what I know from my past experience.
Trail-Mite was a division of Henry Engineering Company, located at 3001 Red Hill Avenue, Esplanade II, Suite 212. Costa Mesa, California 92626
(714) 546-7430 -Sales
(714) 538-0031 -Factory
Don Welcher -Sales Manager
In the late 1960 and early 1970's I purchased and sold
a number of Trail-Mites in the Houston, Texas area with some being delivered as far away as the east coast and the great Northwest.
When this activity began to interfere with my full time job, and an inability to find reliable help, I closed the sales operation (6 days a week) and started a Friday (I day a week) operation renting a fleet of Trail-Mites by the week. I continued this operation for a number of years.
Trail-Mites are a very reliable, low maintenance camper and have "everything you need and nothing you don't" for a good camping experience.
Hope this is helpful !! Vince
