Help: Another edition of "Name that Vintage Travel Trailer"

I bought a travel trailer that I plan to make real purty...There was no title, of course. Nor registration even. The guy didn't know much - lucked into it and just wanted to sell. He told me it was a 65 Travco, but in the research I have done there is no such thing as a Travco trailer...

Here's a link to the picture showing all angles.

A strong possibility is an Aloha, but I can't find an Aloha *exactly* like this (with widows the length of the door, with pattered diamond skin strip so small, etc.) If you have any expertise, I'd sure love to hear your guesses!

That trailer looks like any of a couple of dozen from that era. Are there any stickers or plates that have been painted over? Looks like a nice old trailer.

Thanks Ken! It's actually in decent shape, but needs a bit of work inside (two interior wall panels need replacing) and definitely exterior paint, so I have a nice project for the winter!

I found a serial number that reads AC 166285 MD. The MD is for Maryland, where the trailer lived most of its life (until I brought it to Michigan this past weekend!). I thought the AC *might* stand for Aloha Camper, but it seems unlikely that a camper would find it's way to Maryland all those years ago from Beaverton OR (where the Aloha was made) when others similar were being made closer to the East coast. Maybe as I work on renovating I will come across some other identifier. It's frustrating not knowing exactly what you've got!

I definitely plan to document the renovation! This will be my first, so it should be an adventure!
Here are some interior shots.
Interior of the camper we

The interior is in pretty fine shape - the floor and the ceiling were redone, but there is some water damage on a couple of side panels - which will need to be replaced. (Has the original starburst backsplash! - not touching that!)
The electric doesn't seem to be working...I have a mechanically inclined neighbor who is like an electrical genius, and he's likely to figure that out for me, if I make him a pie.

travco [Tin Can Tourists Wiki]

Further research into Travco and Ray Frank might be quite interesting since yours may be one of these vintage trailers.
