Hi there!  New to RVing and just purchased a 1976 Roran travel trailer.  I have never heard of this travel trailer and I cannont find any information regarding this trailer.  Any ideas?

I was impressed at the overall condition of the trailer.  Don't get me wrong, it needs some work, but it seems to be in pretty good shape.  Needs some work on the floor, the ceiling vents have a slight seep, nothing unexpected though.

On the short list is replacing a couple soft spots in the floor, laying down new laminate flooring, new curtains, new upholstery, a couple small repairs to the siding, resealing the windows, new roof vents, new ceiling panels.  Seem like enough?

Here are a couple pictures.  I especially thought it was interesting that there is a gas lantern on the wall by the fridge.

I hope you folks have some ideas because I'm going to need alot of advice!!

Found a huge pile of all the original documentation including manuals, wiring diagrams, etc. The Roran mystery is solved. The name of the manufacturer is Kit, and the model is ROad RANger. I'll post some pics later!
More floor with today. Overall I'm impressed with the amount of insulation and the quality and dryness of the cross beams.
I think it's going to be alright:)

DID a little digging, i think what u got there is a Terry, made by Fleetwood. Fleatwood made several diferent travel trailers, such as terry, avion, corsair, and the list goes on, kind of like general motors with buick, chevy, and so on. now that name Roran could be a part of the terry line. if u are looking for parts i would be looking for fleetwood parts for a terry travel trailer. here is a phone # for fleetwood parts 1-800-591-0628  you may want to run the vin number of the trailer, that will get you the answer. don't know if i was any help or not. camping is fun, enjoy the trailer.

Did Terry make something that would be called Roran on a title?
Interesting.
Thanks,
Brian
