Help with Concord Traveler '60's???

I just recently received an old Concord Traveler after it sat in the woods since '98. Needless to say, it's rough. Outside is very descent, all windows, sheet metal, awning even is in usable condition. The interior is altogether a different story. Years of rodents and birds have left me alot of work ahead of me. After a few hours of research I've found that this camper was manufactured by Champion homes. I emailed them for information but they sold off there camper business 30 years ago. I've been absolutely unable to place a year on it or to find any info on it and I'm hoping someone here has an idea of the year. I tried to contact the company that sold it but can't seem to find them. I have found a serial number on the tongue but I cant really find where it would say the year.

The interior is very rough, I started tearing it down last weekend. I plan on rebuilding the whole inside and floor. I think if it sat much longer where it was, it wouldn't be save able. A cool thing about it was once I got it out of the hole it was in, it towed 80 miles home fine with most lights and the spare on it. When it arrived home I found all the appliance manuals in the freezer all like new.

Well the roof is tin and looks to be descent, I figured once I got it framed and I'd sno coat it. There are a few roof air set ups near me right now on Craigslist for around $300. I'd like to pick one up but I'm unsure if I will. I suppose now is the time to do it while Ill be in there making all new roof supports.

What about a small window unit? If u have the walls out it might be easy to frame one in. U can get a new one for $100

That would be my last resort, I'd rather have it on the roof. Idk main concern is getting it framed up and replacing the floor.

Well this is my first time trying this on my own, I rebuild city buses at work so the flooring I'm familiar with. I've never done any of the actual side and roof braces but its got to be pretty similar to a bus so well see.

They auction them off an normally they go for under 4k. I'm waiting till we start auctioning off the Gillig buses. They're made in California, are all aluminum bodies, Stainless frames and run the good cummins motor. Once we start phasing them out I may consider it lol.
