It's gonna be tough to figure out the make & model, because so many of the companies are no longer in business, and unless there is something really unique in the design, many of these tin-side units look pretty similar.

If you open an account with Photobucket or one of those on-line accounts, you can the post pictures from there. The more pictures you post of the TT (from different angles and inside) the better your chances of someone recognizing it[emoticon].....within reason[emoticon]

I assume that you dug around in the drawers, cabinets and any other places that some paperwork might be hidden?

Honestly, I don't know if it really matters anyway? You said you didn't need it for registration purposes....though maybe for Insurance?
The appliances and such will probably be common to most other TTs out there, so you may be able to find a S/N on the fridge or something, to backtrack through those companies to figure on a year (though that would only be the year the fridge was made, not when it went into the TT)....but it may help!

Good luck!

FYI:

Did you get the number off the doorside tag that shows in the pic? If so (from what I see at this distance) that looks to me more like an "RVIA" or inspection tag of some kind, not a manufacturer's label. If it's connected to some such group/agency they might be able to give you some help...

Man it looks like an old Shasta made during the couple of years they did away with the wings.
It could also be an old Banner but I really believe it is a Shasta.

The tag by the door looks like an RVIA tag and they might be able to tell if you give them the numbers

There is a RVIA tag and right next to it is the tag with an incomplete RV# and VIN. Never seen a 3 digit VIN before. It is mainly a matter of curiosity now. I've already bought it and plan to redo it. I was just mainly trying to see if I could figure out what it was to possible redo it back to what it originally was. I'll check with RVIA and see if I can find out something from them. I'll try to post more pics in the meantime. Thanks everyone for you input!
