If you're going to full time in a 20 foot trailer with your wife, you are an extremely brave man.

For help and info with your trailer, if you have a Facebook account join the group "Vintage Holiday Rambler Owners." A bunch of nice people and a lot of helpful information there.

I could be mistaken, but I believe in the late 60s they were using just Holiday Rambler and Holiday Traveler names. By the late 70s they were using different names for the various trim levels, starting with the Statesman, then stepping up to the Presidential and Imperial, with Imperial Limited being the top-of-the-line model. They also had a lower cost trailer called a Holiday Ramblette, built with a wood frame.

yep, i found traveler in the original paperwork,,,,
it a very well built trailor from what i see so far,,,i spent yesterday bleach washing it,,
i know its a heavy unit,,compared to my aritocrat,and tag a long,..but i loved the layout much bigger inside than it looks outside, and it is a very sturdy travel trailor..

the fella threw in 2 30 gallon propane tanks, and the anti ssway bar,s and hitch..
it pulled awsome even without them hooked up,,--i have never used them before and need to learn how to hook them up..
the only real problem i see is the shower pan is cracked,,,not sure if will need to replace or make a fiberglass one myself..the roof of course needs resealed and all the old caulking redone but to me thats excpected...for the price i gave for it ...it was like he just gave it to me ...one of those to good to be true deals,,,but for the price if i had to rewire and plumb everything i still got a great deal....and he threw in a hardtop for my old yj...which is funny because thats how i found the tt, i was looking at the top he had posted for sale and in the background i could see the backend of this old camper....so i asked him if he would consider selling it and he finally said yes afgter a looong pause...lol..he was a kool retired pilot, and everything he had was well taken care of,, he had removed the wheels with the camper sitting on blocks and the wheels and tires were stored inside a work barn,,
i swear it was like american picker paraadise,,,but nothing rusted,,,i tried to talk him out of a very nice vintage range rover,,,,but he wouldnt let that one go...lol...and i dont blaame him....

thanks again for your info..
