My wife and I recently bought a solid Cree camper. I believe its a 16 footer. Im looking for any information on Cree campers and where i may find parts for one. I plan on beginning my restoration in April, but am researching parts now. I also am looking for the name of this little gem, and what the origional paint may have look like. The previous owners brush painted the outside and put a Tar like substance on the roof, given the body is solid I just want to strip and paint the outside and clean up the aluminum trim and windows. If anyone has info. please asvise.

Hello. Try the link below from tin can tourists wiki. Looks to have some good information. Not sure if you are looking for parts suppliers but I do know a few good ones if you need that info also.

Hello again, Chad.  I did find some information on the Cree Manufacturing.  Please web search tincantourists.com and there will come up several headings.  Go to the heading camp SITES and from there click onto Trailer Manufacturers...Cree is on that list!  Hit onto Cree and there are pictures, floorplans and history of the company!  We hope to be visiting the RV Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana, this summer and we will look for more information then.  Erin & Roger Dulin

Thanks for the feedback. I finally have some photos posted of the camper. As you can see its not in too bad a shape for the price I paid. However in my absence it looks as if my folks have allowed my niece and nephew to camp out in it in the back field. :)

Ours has a manufacturers sticker in one of the galley cabinets. Nothing on the outside but Im having a decal guy make some Cree decals for me from photos I have seen of similar Cree campers. We have yet to use ours, but are super excited to get it rolling. Camper Ralley in June huh, that could be right up our alley! We were thinking about headding out west for a few weeks in June, given the trailer is ready.

Hello Chad, We are the Dulins from Brazil, Indiana.  Last spring we bought a Cree trailer...the title listed it as a 1960, but we have since found out that it is a 1955. It is about 22' long and has a great interior.  It does need work, and as soon as this snow melts and nicer weather sets in we will tackle it.

We have not been able to find out much about the Cree line.  What we do know is this:  they were built in Marcellus, Michigan after WW11.  They were well built and the company built many truck campers.  That's about all I know, other than we LOVE ours!  Does your Cree have a Cree decal or nameplate anywhere?  Ours just has a small metal nameplate in the back stating it's name...nothing on the front.  Please keep in touch...and if you are ever in The Terre Haute or Indy area, give us a call.  We also host the southern Indiana Vintage Camper Rally each June.  Check out our website! http://southern-indiana-vtr.blogspot.com/   Yours Erin & Roger Dulin
