Help identifiying travel trailer

Any ideas or info about this travel trailer? It's completely gutted (except the bathroom) and we're toying around with the idea of restoring it. We can't find any info anywhere on it.

Hello

Cant help , other than to say probably one of the many manufacturers the went belly-up during the 70's gas crunch.
Nothing on the title ? Serial # anywhere ?
By the siding and vent windows , I'm thinking 68>72.
Company probably went down pre internet, so I'm thinking a search won't help.
Is there a name in the decal on the front ?

Smokey?
No info necessary really. Not if it's gutted?? It's just assembled using parts that are pretty much standardized within the industry...

Very true, and conversion to what works for you could be a lot less $$$$, than a resto.

Thank you. I guess "restore" was the wrong word. We are, just like skip426 said, looking to customize it and make it something that works for us. So I guess knowing about it isn't necessary, just thought it would be neat to know a little more about it.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

May be a 1970's era prowler? Their striping was more of a brown color than the Yellowstone striping. It was more of a yellow or gold color.

We started in a 16 foot "Manorette" that looked alot like it. There's one across the road from us right now in the campground. Lots of great memories in that little camper, that was 8 units ago.
