Didn't know it existed until just now. Will be getting in touch with them and see if they have any information.

I've seen a few of those out at the shows, but on all of them the door was on the opposite side, same as the steering wheel on their home market cars.
The door on the trailer pictured looks like it was added at some time. Do you own this trailer? Has siding been replaced on the driver's side?

Westend, I own this trailer, it's actually sitting in my driveway as we speak. I believe the door to be original as the wood panelling on the inside lower part of the door matches color and grain with the rest of the interior perfectly. Looks to me as if the siding is all original as the patina is exactly the same all around and the same screws are used in all places.

JJBIRISH, I thought that as well. However according to the Holiday Rambler club it's not one of theirs as all of them used the full Holiday Ramber name badge, while this one just says "Holiday" in a kind of balloon script over the windows.

Going to get in touch with the RV museum and see if they have any info. Thanks for all the input folks...

Is the trailer from Canada? If so, "Holiday" Trailers were originally built near or in Kitchener Ontario. The company was called Holiday Trailers and operated from the early 1960's until they were purchased by Norcom Leisure Products Ltd. which operated two plants from the mid 1970's to 1981 / 1982. The one plant was in Kitchener and they had a second plant near St. Julie Quebec on the east side of Montreal off Hwy 20. The Kitchener plant supplied Ontario and Western Canada and the Quebec Plant supplied Eastern Canada. When Norcom purchased the company they began producing Holiday Class C motor homes, fifth wheels, park models and travel trailers. The 1981/1982 recession killed them as demand dropped due to 21% interest rates and quality issues as they began to cut quality and corners to save money. To this day their products produced in the late 70's and early 80's can be seen on the highways and in campgrounds that allow older units. The units featured the name holiday as a wave (sea-wave shape)and the common orange / yellow stripes for this era. I worked for an RV dealer in Sarnia , Ontario that sold this line for a few years until they went bankrupt.

Thanks, Lou

That's the most information that anyone has stated on these trailersu parents owned one in the early 80's and I still see a few around from time to time. They are difficult to find any information on. I've been trying to snap photos of ones I see. My parents model was an 18 footer. Beyond that I don't know the model. But I can remember the layout clear as day.
