"small holes are the mounting holes and the larger hole is a guide pin hole or weep hole for moisture."

How to install auto lamp 575 chicago tail lights?

  Have these two tail lights for my trailer, but I didn't take them off before the restoration so I'm not sure how they are screwed. I see two different sized holes in the lens, and slightly different patterns in the base. It looks like the larger holes align with the dipped holes in the base and they attach the base to the trailer side. Then, the narrower holes use shorter screws (machine screws probably) to attach the lens to the base. Is this correct? Anyone can confirm? Thanks! …See More

"Thanks for the welcome Wes and CD! Our Layton is indeed well built, but wasn't taken care of and we pretty much rebuilt it from the bottom up. This is a 13' bumper pull trailer."

Layton was made in Pa. by Skyline Corp. Eventually sold off to Evergreen who just closed recently. Always known for superior quality & that's why so many vintage Layton campers exist today. You got a Layton...you got lucky! Best wishes.

Bumper pull or 5th wheel? I've got a 1987 Layton Funtime 5th wheel that my wife and I own. I don't know if there are very many Layton campers around anymore. They went out of business a long time ago I believe. my father had a bumper pull Layton when I was a teenager that he bought used. I'm 57 now so that's been one or two days ago. They were built like a tank compared to the new stuff out there today. The people here are great and can help with any questions you may have during your restoration.  Wes.
