These two were "sister" trailers. I don't want to confuse things too much... About 1960, Shasta began introducing some variations to the models previously available. The most common ones left from that time are the Airflyte and the 16SC (SC = "Self-Contained"). The difference between those two was the interior layout, the 16SC had a bathroom in its layout, the Airflyte did not.
One of the variations in their models was the rearward-entry door design. The 16SCS model was one of these, entry was rear of the axle, and the model featured a full wet bath with a shower facility. (16SCS = 16 foot model, "Self-Contained with Shower). The sister 16RK (RK = "rear kitchen") was built on the same floor and rear entry door, but did not have a bathroom in its floor plan.
Hi Ten Thanks for your reply. I am posting the above pictures of the shasta Rk not sure if it is though. It has a toilet but no shower. Also the cupboards above were the fridge is supposed to go would that be original? The furnace heater looks like it was added and cut into the lower cabinet face but the upper cabinet has no shelf and it’s very shallow. Do you think there might have been a larger or different furnace or none? Thanks Lila
My SCS had the toilet and shower. It's hard to know if yours is an RK or SCS because the RK didn't seem to have the bathroom closet... The tall heater was just forward of the bathroom. I'm guessing yours was replaced with a smaller heater.
Thank you for all your replies. Smartest people around. It was confusing since it had a porcelain toilet made by Groco with a hand pump that looks to be the same era. Because of your information we looked at it better underneath and now know that the toilet was added. They did a darn good job though and probably put it in shortly after it was originally bought. Shasta mfgs. odd that they would make an Rk with two big closets and no bathroom then a SCS with bathroom and shower same floorplan. Someone messed up on the original SCs floor plan perhaps.
