Hi All -
I joined here in order to get support for the Fiberglass portion of our Hybrid Fiberglass/Aluminum - or Half-Fiberglass - 1970 Eriba Puck vintage travel trailer. It's moulded roof & pop-top sections are the same, & with the same care & renovation/resto/repair issues, as the rest of your full moulded fiberglass body trailers. I have a couple of scratches in the gelcoat/paint surface that I'll want to touch-up. So later on I'll post some how-to & help topics' questions, but after I can first see what's already posted on here.
I'm also a member of your sister forums group AirForums for Airstreams - for our "Vintage Kin" 1960 Avion T20 Aluminum "Silver Twinkie" - and I can get help on the Aluminum skins portion of our Puck on there & TheSamba.com's Puck Topic. I put a pic of our Avion with our original owner & nearly-classic-car 1988 VW Westfalia CamperGL Van (see pics below) - which also has a moulded fiberglass pop-top & roof luggage rack - so also will get fiberglass tips on here for it as well.
I did see that you listed an Avion group under your Legacy Brands list, but AFAIK they never built an all molded fiberglass trailer either - even in the later Fleetwood years, although they too had a moulded fiberglass roof with sheet aluminum &/or fiberglass side & end wall sections after they abandoned the silver aluminum bodied Avions.
However, I can't find Hymer, Eriba, Roadtrek nor Thor-Hymer Fiberglass (FG) trailers on here - even though after Thor bought Hymer-Eriba & Roadtrek - they did produce & sell their Eriba Touring GT all fiberglass trailer in Canada 2018-19, before shutting down that Ontario plant - rumored to be because Thor didn't want it to compete with their upcoming Airstream Nest in the same market segment - which should also be listed here as a current production fully moulded Fiberglass trailer.
There are full FG Hymer Touring GTs trading & in use out there - so you should probably add those makers to your Manufacturers list - for the short lived all FG Hymer Touring GT - as well as for the other Hybrid FG-Aluminum Eriba/Hymer-Eriba models.
Hymer-Eriba still makes & sells the larger Touring & other Eriba Puck generated travel trailers in Europe, UK, Commonwealth & other world markets - many of which have found there way to the USA & Canada of their 1950s to date travel trailers.
There is also the reverse-engineered-Puck based "Meerkat" trailer still being made in San Diego by Little Guy Trailers (who also sell the Tag & Tab & other small hybrid FG-Aluminum trailers).
I'm new to this FiberglassRV Forums, with a Legacy or "Vintage Triler/RV" Hybrid Fiberglass-Aluminum 1970 Eriba Puck - which has a Molded Fiberglass Roof & Pop-Top Sections, & Aluminum Sidewalls - that we purchased from the +/- 4th or 5th owner in October 2018.
You'll note in the photos below, that the USA Export Pucks (from Germany & later France) have the same era USA appliances, lights
as used in your Boler
& other USA/Canada moulded FG trailers of the 1960s-70s, and in the small "Canned Ham" trailers like Shasta & the other contemporaneous brands here - because they shipped them incomplete from their main factory, & then finished them out in their USA factory in SoCal (Hawthorne, & another) with items which would be easily serviced, repaired & replaced here buy USA/Canadian owners.
It's a time capsule at about 80-90% all original, and we're trying to keep it that way with only repairs/renovation, touch-ups & wear items replacement (e.g.: new tires).
The prior owner that we bought it from had replaced the pop-top sides-tent, reupholstered the seat cushions, replaced the outer curtains after a hand wash disintegrated the originals, upgraded some of the electrical
systems, added a for-fit Sisal floor mat (leaving the other PO's carpet tile adhesive for me to clean-up ;-), replaced some of the exterior walls' joint strips' red vinyl cover strips, & added some other items.
While prior owners (PO) had replaced the tires
& wheels (8in to 10 in diameter upgrade to factory option size), replaced the LP tank & lines and reconditioned the stove burners & repainted the inside of the stove-top, replaced the missing water tank with a generic jug, etc. This Puck was one of the earliest in TheSamba's Puck Topic with a prior owner (3 POs ago) back in 2009.
For Puck history - Eriba designed their tiny 660 lb Puck model 70+/- years ago, back in the early 1950's in partnership with VW to be towable by VW's then 1000cc 25 HP Bugs/Buses etc. & other small Euro/UK cars. The Eriba line eventually expanded to several larger models - all with the hybrid aluminum walls & FG roof/pop-top design.
Hymer later bought Eriba & still markets the Touring Model - which is about the same size as their original 1960's era "Familia" model in the chart above.
We can't wait until it's COVID safe again for us to go out camping with our vintage trailer buddies & family!
