Red Dale Camper Owners Group


Red Dale Camper Owners Group

I've set up this group because we've just purchased a 1969 Red Dale Camper and we haven't found much information about them.

We also want to connect with Red Dale owners (present or past).

Anyway, we want to encourage Red Dales owners to share photos (new or old), stories, and details (true or not) about the Red Dale Coach Company that was originally based out of Longmont, Colorado, USA.

Hi Douglas.  I can't provide much on your first question.  But for the second, check out for the service and user's manual for your fridge.  You'll probably find the model number in the outside access panel.  

We're working through issues with getting the fridge to light when on propane...get gas (can eventually smell it), and can see a spark, but no ignition.  Right now we're using it as an ice box.  Did that for two and a half months last autumn before we plugged in for the winter (electric worked great).

77' 18 foot Reddale owner here. Been RV living full time for about 2 months now, but still getting to know my camper. Does anyone know procedures for 1) electric water pump/valves/tank fill and 2) how th operate the propane/electric refrigerator? Thanks all.

Howdy All!

Proud & happy owner of a 1978 Red Dale 20' Front Dinette which is our tiny home on wheels.  Looking forward to learning more about my home, and about the company itself.

Hi Reddale camper owners. Nice to see that name but not many reddale motorhomes seen on line. I bought this Dodge 1976/7 Reddale while living in Fairbanks, Alaska and picked it up new in Longmont. CO  Drove it over to the east coast. Soon after that moved to Iceland and had it shipped over. Sold it 1981 then back in 2018 i saw it again and fell again in love and bought it though only wreck. Waiting for spring to start rebuilding project or maybe just spending some time with it before junking ;-)

Bought this Red Dale truck camper last fall for hunting.. Guessing it's a 71 or 72, not sure. Has some water damage in the left rear corner that will need addressed, but everything worked and we didn't freeze! Hoping to glean some info on the heater, as the original bulb thermostat doesn't work. We just switched on and off as necessary. Label says Royal Desoto, but google finds nothing on camper heaters with that name. Looking to swap out the gas valve for one with a real thermostat.

I'm a new member, and new to RVs.

I recently bought a 1976 Red Dale cabover camper for my 1969 Ford F-250.

I just uploaded some photos. I will probably need more than a bit of advice from you folks, as this is my first RV, and I confess that I haven't the foggiest notion of what I am doing.

We recently purchased a 1973 Red Dale and are looking forward to sprucing it up this summer!
