I just bought a 69 Red Dale, 26'. Ready to get to cleaning it up and set for the road. Luckily, it doesn't need much.

I've been wanting to travel for a long time, and now I've found just the trailer to do it in. Probably going to start taking my daughter to state parks just to get started and find any hidden kinks or issues, then maybe head to Arizona for my first long trip.

Any suggestions?

Well, I picked up my daughter this afternoon, then dropped by and showed her the trailer.  She seems ready to do some camping this summer ... this time in the Red Dale.  (It makes it easier to coax a teenage daughter to go camping if they have their own toilet and facilities.  Ha!)

We hooked it up and pulled it into town where we took it to the car wash and thoroughly cleaned her off.  40 + years of Oklahoma red dirt had been blown into all the little crevices and caked-on under all…

Getting Started -1969 Red Dale

I just bought a 26', 1969 Red Dale travel trailer from a local family.  I've been looking around online, and haven't seen another one like it anywhere - anyone know of any others? I've found a few short ones, but none this length.  No photos, yet.  I'll have some up, soon.

It's in excellent condition - the man's parents bought it new in '69, used it for three years, then kept it parked under a corrugated tin building ever since.  The outside is a bit faded, but all there and in good…

Hi John,

Thanks for the welcome!  We picked up our airstream 4 years ago and have been doodling with it ever since. The majority of the work was done within the first 2 months, but we've slowly been making adjustments/tweaks each year.


We haven't even touched the Cree yet......we know it will be a multi-year, complete rebuild so we're taking our time on it. I guess you could say we're ramping ourselves up for the challenge. :)

Thanks! An outfit in Washington called Nickerstickers took a photo of me and photoshopped it to have me jumping the Golden Gate Bridge since I'm from San Francisco. Then i had a decal made. What kind of dog is that???
