True. We have a 25' 1947 Spartan 'trailer house' - great storage, built in dressing table/desk in the bedroom even, but no bathroom. No holding tanks to deal with anyway -

Hi everyone. I found out it's definitely not a Coleman camper. That Sign/Logo was added afterward. I still haven't found any labal or id tag on or in the camper. I checked the door frame & every other nook & krany. It's all original, top to bottom. I cannot believe what great condition it is in! I wish I could find a photo of one just like it. I've yet too. Or anything like it. Not even the arrow logo. It would be nice to find an owers manual. All the electricity is original, plumbing, water tank. All in great condition. The lamp above the stove is gas powered, I have never seen anything like that!

It also seems to have original hook ups for a battery which I thought to be odd for the date of the camper?

Here's what I think is in the shadow of the removed emblem:

Not sure what is under the arrow, but I see the outline of an arrow, the only thing left is the fletching (feathers)

Our little home made El Camino slide in camper had 'gas' lamps. They take Coleman lantern mantles, if they are the same type.

mtnbound,
Have you started work on your Arrow? Wondering what you will do with it...are you planning on only painting the outside? Have you found the paint you are thinking of using?

Hi nope haven't started on the outside yet. I definitely want to redo the arrow logo. I plan on painting the outside, someone suggested Ocean Blue Breeze as the color. I'm looking to do it the antique blue on a lot of vintage campers. I want to read up as much as possible about redoing the outside before I begin. Right now I'm doing the inside. Thinking of replaceing the water system.

Nope, inside says Coleman. The Little gas lamp above the stove area says Humprey, the stove has a logo that says Meymell Erie Penna.

the only reason to go tearing that water system out is if the pressure bladder no longer works. you could fit a slightly larger, ergo heavier when full, squared plastic tank there, but as long as there are no leaks i would leave it alone. you didn't find any kind of spec sheet glued to the inside of a cabinet door or seat bench? my Southwind has a comprehensive list of what they (Fleetwood) installed glued to the cabinet door under the sink.
i think you've found a real gem, there... worthy of restoration.

Yes there are leaks in the water tank & the old pipes seems like they had burst. Still haven't come across any tags or spec sheets. I searched every inch of the camper. I'm about to go out to it now & replace the screens. I still keep looking for specs...
