We just got this little camper to restore. Is in excellent original condition. But has absolutely no identification. It is 13 foot bumper to ball. 10 foot box. Any help greatly appreciated. Seems very similar to a avalon lil tyke. Thanx
The interior design and the location of the windows and the door are quite different from my 67 L'il Tyke. Is there a plate fastened to the frame somewhere? It might be painted over. The frame and tongue do look similar to a L'il Tyke - might be a later model or just a similar design.
Thanx for replying. There is no plate on tongue. I am going to take a wire wheel on a grinder to the tongue one day this week. The lil tyke is the closest thing i have seen on web. And believe me i looked at hundreds of campers. I hope to figure out what it is to have a decal made. You can faintly see where there was a decal. We just love this little camper. We are going to restore what little there is to do do over this winter. Our plan after that is to pull it with our ram promaster city. Out west like they did in the 60’s and 70’s. I am also curious how much it might weigh. No place was open to weigh it when i brought it home.
Avalon was a Canadian company, but finding any information on it is difficult. This site lets you post photos to see if anyone recognizes what it is: https://www.facebook.com/vintagecampertrailers. The serial numbers were somewhere on the right front or tongue, and were just four digits (on mine, anyway) like 0123.
I sort of remember my Dad asking me to get the number stamps out of the tool barn so he could stamp the VIN (serial no.) on the new tongue when he finished welding it on (the old one broke). So I would assume the serial number was on the tongue forward of the frame on the door side.
