I guess our trailer doesn't qualify as "vintage" but we are enjoying fixing up an old 1972 Raynel trailer that we found. Planning to post some before and after photos here eventually. Has anyone heard of this model of trailer? from the ID plate on it, it was built in Oregon but apparently it is rare. Only twice I have found one for sale on the internet in the past several years.
I haven’t heard of this model, but in the early 70s there were still many companies building travel trailers. You say it’s 11 feet. Is that the box, or did you measure tongue to bumper? Please post pictures if possible, there’s info on how to do that on this website. Also, and much more importantly, you said you’re “fixing up” the trailer. As much as most of us enjoy the “lipstick” part, we will all warn against putting it on a “pig.” In other words, do the structure first and don’t gut it. There is a plethora of good information here, and you can start by looking at mobiltec’s You Tube videos. As for 1972 being vintage, well, let me ask our grandkids!
After carefully examining the worn ID plate with a magnifier I was able to make out that it was made in Montclair, CA and not Oregon like I had first thought. The box itself is 11' long. I knew we had some rot from a leak in one back corner, but after opening it up and inspecting it we ended up rebuilding all four corners. Other wise seems pretty solid. Good floor with no soft spots. Ice box had previously been pulled and replaced with a small electric fridge. We're keeping the interior as it was with the exception of painting from the bunk level down to cover up scuffed up paneling. Tried posting photos but I'll have to read up here first on how to do it.
