Tell us a little About Yourself
We currently own a 1962 Compaq Keuka made in Elmira NY. It's similar to a Hi-Lo. It's 10x6 inside and we fit my husband and I, as well as our full size collie, and our son's 80lb dog. Cozy.

I have the owners manual for our Krager along with the window Sticker! They were made in Winona Minnesota.

Brenda --

Krager Koaches were built between 1971 - 1973. They were designed to attract outdoorsmen and sportsmen yet provide a high degree of luxury for a class A at that time. The high ground clearance and short wheelbase allowed them to get into locations where other coaches could not go, making it ideal for hunters. At most, there were only a few dozen units built at the Krager facility in Winona, Minnesota. They were marketed as the Krager Kustom Koach.

The chassis is an International Harvester D-1500 with a 392 V8 "Cornbinder" engine equipped with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor attached to a Chrysler heavy-duty, 3-speed automatic transmission. They even have a Hurst T-shifter on the dash. The driving area also includes Thermo-King air conditioning in addition to the roof mounted Coleman unit. The coaches are fully self-contained including a 4,000-watt Onan generator (at least in my coach.)

The construction of the rig itself includes a box-steel frame to support the one-piece fiberglass shell and is insulated with rigid foam panels in the voids. The body is attached to the frame by encasing the box-steel tubing with fiberglass. The floor is marine-grade plywood with protective metal sheeting running the length and width between the underside of the floor and the chassis.

My 1973 rig was completely refurbished and customized in 1988 so the wiring system is probably not the same as yours. The most distinguishing feature on the outside of my coach is the Freightliner truck headlight assemblies that the customizers 'glassed into the redesigned front end. Please take a look at the photo albums I have posted to see what it could look like customized.

Unfortunately, because there were so few of them built, information about them is difficult to come by.
