Hi friends! My dude and I brought this ugly girl home a couple of weeks ago and we are in love with the possibilities. Besides the much needed exterior refurbish - our desire is to replace her gutted interior with all new flooring, structural framework, and cabinetry. We are doing a ton of research now and have found great comfort in reading the many posts from folks here on this forum!
He's brains and the brawn when it comes to the renovation. But, I'll be daydreaming about the interior and blogging about gypsy camping lifestyle along the way on our website vintageshastacamper.com/
Welcome to VTT! Congrats. I was thinking the same thing on the quilt with screws on top edge. Wonder if it original or old under it? Either way, I've always liked the quilt pattern brakes. Have fun and enjoy, Soup

That quilt pattern certainly threw me off while researching models, and trying to figure out what I had here. There was no paperwork, so we were basing it off of google image searches and other models found on this forum. And I haven't seen any pictures that show that quilt pattern on the front. I'm inclined to think it was added later.
I'm sure we'll learn more once we start pulling her apart and putting her back together.
I finally determined that we had a 16SC b/c of the residual frame work from a torn out bathroom in the back right corner. And that model was only built from 61-64.... so I know she is from one of those years.
