1973 Holiday Rambler Vacationer HELP NEED INFO

Recently bought my first travel trailer and she is looking pretty good for being 17 years older than me. It needs a lil TLC and some of it is no problem but other things I would really like to have some concrete research for. I'm having one hell of a time finding a manual or any solid info on this trailer. If anyone can tell me something about it i'd appreciate it.

The manual for your trailer would have been a 3-ring binder with individual manuals from the manufacturer of each component, such as water heater, refrigerator, furnace, etc. Most of those manuals can be found and downloaded online.

HR did have an Owner's Manual, but it is a small booklet with very generic information in it. I've attached a copy of a 1978 manual for you. A 1973 would have been very similar.

Thanks guys any little bit will help. So far electricity is looking good, someone had replaced the A/c on top to a newer coleman that also does heat which is nice.Probably gonna need new tires and rims the way they look, towed to location fine but I wouldn't go anywhere far with them. Now to check and test all the water and propane things aka the fun stuff. Also have to get a modern adaptor for the 7-way light connection to test the tow lights. Soon on to living the dream
