While I can readily get unfinished 1/4 birch plywood/paneling at the local chain stores, I cannot seem to locate 1/8 birch. I plan to use 1/4 inch on my walls, but would like to use 1/8th on the…Continue

"If the vent is below your nose, you will definitely smell it!  You may consider an extension that is attached only when you are parked, a part of setting up and taking down when camping."

Holding tank vent

I'm installing a new black water holding tank below the bathroom floor. Original design in this trailer had the tank vent coming up through the floor about 10 inches and turning 90 degrees and exiting through the side wall. The standard now days is to vent through the roof. Is exiting out the side wall ok? It's going to be a bit of a pain to vent through the roof. We totally rebuilt our camper as soon as we bought it so I have not used this set up to know whether or not the side venting is…See More

I think http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com has window guards.

Pretty sure if he does not have what you need, he will head you in the right direction;)

Kevin, I am on Facebook but when I enter "1967 Wildcat Travel Trailer Restoration", nothing comes up except some comercial sites for vintage trailers. I entered your name and several Kevin Quilans came up. I'll send a friend request to the one from Grand Rapids,Mi. and see if you get it.

Kevin,

Yes a Model 13. When we bought the trailer, it was used as a field office for an electrician and didn't have a title so I didn't know what kind of trailer it was. It had the Wildcat sticker on the front but the school district that we're in and where we bought the trailer was the North Union Wildcats so I figured that it was just a bumper sticker from there. I posted the pictures on line and asked if anyone knew what kind of trailer it was and Juergen Eichermueller responded and told me it was a Wildcat Travel Trailer. I thought well, Duh...that's what it says on the front but that really is the name. I still haven't found a vin or serial number. Could you tell me where the number is on yours? I need it to get a new title made or get a new one assigned to it. These must be rare trailers because I can't find hardly anyone with them on line. Have you been able to find much information on them? Mr. Eichermueller did send me a disk that had a report on the trailer from 1965 and some ads in various magazines. I'm looking for a rear window for it now without much success.
