Question Anyone with info on 70's Skylarks?

I've googled and done some research but I don't find a lot. Most that I see are in Canada it seems. We have a "new" one here in Iowa -a 1972. Says SYLARK INC. Bristol Indiana on the registration plaque. Any info anyone can share on skylarks I'd love if you'd share a bit with me! Putting this out there "just in case"...never know. Ours is a 16ft. sleeps 6. I know that Jayco didn't make it -- I spoke with a Jayco rep that looked up all that for me. Thanks!

Seems like youre going to have as much trouble as i am finding info. The good thing about TTs is that you dont really need to find anything trailer specific.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We also have a Skylark. It says Kent on the front. We are having some electrical issues with it. If any one can help us out finding some information about these or where to look it sure would be nice. Thanks Tammy

Skylark 1978 renovation

Just purchased a 1978 Skylark 16-ft. Readying for full demolition, rebuild of frame and renovation back to glory. She's got a few redeeming factors left, but most interior needs replacing. Best room in the house-bathroom, lol! Once we replace the water damaged wood and get the frame in good shape, we will move on to everything else. Does have new hot water heater and working fridge. A/C works but both top and interior covers destroyed. The fresh water tank looks to be metal. Any ideas, suggestions, input or comments welcome! Very little out there on the Skylark.
