1076 Vangaurd 20 ft 5th wheel

Hi everyone,
My wife and I recently made the jump from tenting over, we also recently bought a 1976 20 ft vanguard 5th wheel . Just started to renovate it last night and I couldn't find any owner manual I tried to look online and couldn't find a thing. I was wondering if anyone has a link for said owners manual ?? does anyone have the same trailer? if so tips tricks etc . and also I cant seem to find the battery or where the battery would go ?? Cheers

Welcome to iRV2.
If your RV was built by the same Vanguard company I'm thinking of , it was Canadian made they had factories in Ontario and B.C.
I believe the company was a victim of the 2008 economy disaster and they may have never had an internet presence. Appliance info should be available online those manufacturers are still around. I worked on a ton of the Class Cs and van conversions the company produced but not their 5ers.
I'll see if I can track down any info, could be the company re-surfaced under another name.
I'll re-post if I find anything.

From what I've found in the last few mins. Vanguard was bought up by Peak Manufacturing , in about 2000 . Peak went bankrupt in 2003 and their assembly plant was switched over to park model production.

Looks like the trail is 13 years old /cold. I'll keep looking.
