Smile Help Identifying This Trailer?

I was thinking of purchasing this trailer to remodel..
When I went to check it out I couldn't find any identifying features(brand name, model numbers etc.), it looks to me as a mid-70's to early-80's Prowler but I just can't put my finger on it.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

Could this be a Coachman?

I saw this one Ebay and thought it looked a lot like yours.

If you can not find any identification on it how will you get license plates for it? Nice looking unit.

The registration card should identify it.

Been busy working on the trailer, turned out to be a 1976 Bendix Citation. It was made in Hensall, Ontario(a tiny town about 20 minutes away!). I can't find anything on this company though! I took a drive out to Hensall and found a General Coach factory that is still making trailers, I went in and talked to the manager, he confirmed that the trailer was made there but couldn't provide me with any information about where to get more information on the company, or information on my trailer. If anyone has info please share!!

This is what I found. At least it's as current as 2008...


For over 60 years General Coach makes the finest RV's in the market.
General Coach was established in Hensall, Ontario 1950. That said, General Coach is the oldest RV manufacturer still operating in Canada today.
General has had numerous corporate owners during the past 60 years, companies such as Divco Wayne, Boise Cascade, Bendix Corporation, Commodore Corporation and for the past 28 years; Thor Industries. In May 2010 Thor Industries sold all interest in General Coach Canada to Roger Faulkner who previously held the position of President. Roger Faulkner and Rogerís son Chris Faulkner continue the legacy. Today General Coach Canada is family owned and operated, giving it the personal touch.
Roger has been involved in all aspects of the RV Industry for the past 42 years. Roger is one of the founding fathers of the Canadian Go-RVing program and has held the position of President of the Canadian Recreation Vehicle Association numerous times. Roger is also the Chairman of the CSA-Z241 technical committee on Park Model Recreational Vehicles, a position he has held since 1990.
Today, General Coach Canada is totally focused on their line of park model recreational Vehicles, cabins and mobile homes. Built with the finest materials, not mass-produced but hand crafted by small town Canadian craftsmen who take pride in every unit they build. General Coach boasts the very best warranty in the business along with a parts and service department that genuinely care about your well being.
