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.

1966 Red Dale 2 Replies

We just purchased a 1966 Red Dale camper in excellent condition.  It has been in storage for many years, so I'm sure we will find some things that don't work, but for its age, it's very nice.  I wish…Continue

Our 1966 Red Dale camper is missing the outside cover for the front window.  Has anyone replaced theirs?  I would like some ideas on replacing this cover.  ThanksContinue

Right, I am familiar with the external tank you speak of, I have one.  Just never had a pickup camper before so wanted to make sure I set it up right.  Right now, I have 4 separate drains.  I suppose I need to run all 4 to 1, correct?  Now the shower drain seems to be different, and I believe that just runs to the ground.  Any more insight would be great. I can take a picture if needed.

I think some folks use a portable waste tank and as such, don't have grey water tanks or the like. Also when your at a site with hookups you just run a 3" line with some slope to the waste hookup that they provide. With the portable tanks, you set them on the ground near your waste outlet, with a hose of course,  and when you're done camping you carry them back home, or to a dump site and empty them there. They are designed for this. some even have wheels so you can tow them to the dump site

Well, LPG door is secured now and I have taken the number off the plate, by the door.  Tried looking it up but nothing really comes up. The number is 0572923  That last digit is hard to read but pretty sure it is a 3.  Thanks for any help, that can be provided.

I have added some pictures now, if anyone is interested.  All I need to do now is secure the LPG door, fill the system with water and test it, figure out what I need as far as gray water tank.  All my plumbing just runs out to the back and down.  It attaches to nothing, no tank just piping straight down.

Hello everyone, I have recently purchase a Red Dale cabover camper, early 80's model I guess.  It has been redone and I have slowly finished the job that was started.  It is in great shape on the inside and the outside just needs paint and a LPG door, mine blew off. Will add a photo soon, just wanted to say hello.

Im redoing this Red Dale and would love any info on years or serial number ID that anyone might have. Ive done previous campers and this one is interesting because the roof and even the floor seem to be constructed with some kind of stress skin panel construction, where they bonded thin ply and aluminum to a core of rigid foam. I ended up installing tapered roof trusses and insulation in between.

  I'm in the process of renovating and restoring my '64 and it's been pretty involved.  To get to the electrical in mine I had to take out the cabinets, counter (sink, icebox, everything) so if you don't have to it's best to keep it intact if it's serviceable.  If it's not then you have a project on your hands!  =)

Hi everyone! I have a question that I’m hoping Red Dale people can help me. For the most part she’s pretty good inside just needs updating. My plan is to paint all of the paneling. I’m wanting to pull one wall of paneling off, to access the electrical inside the wall and consider redoing it. It just looks sketchy. Anyone have any advice before I dive in? I can send pictures if needed. Thanks for putting this group together!
