What do I have?

We purchased this a few weeks ago and I can't find any ID info on it, such as vin #'s etc. The previous owner said it was a 1968 Fleetwood. I can't seem to find any pictures that match either. Any help is appreciated.

Vin or serial number is often found in two (actually more) places on the vehicle and possibly one more place. .. one is on the tong near the hitch. This is a common Stamping ground for VIN's on trailers

The other will be on a piece of paper likely inside one of the cabinets or on the inside of a cabinet drawer inside.

The non-vehicle place.. On the vehicle registration or Title (if there is a title it WILL be there but not all states title trailers)

now.. 1980 and later vins are nice and long 13 characters for cars and trucks and most trailers.. But pre 1980 might be shorter.. Much shorter in some cases.

What do I have?

It looks a lot like a 1959 Winnie 16 ft I had.
Do you have any interior pics?

I'm an idiot. It's supposed to be a frolic not a fleetwood. Here are some inside pics. We are also painting the outside, there is a pic of the turquoise freshly painted.

Easier to find one using "Frolic" as search word...

I found several, and a comment that the vin # should be on the tongue, but may have been painted over.

Those are nice looking trailers. Good luck with your project.
