Any other Vintage Nomad owners out there? 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969. Looking for some hard to find parts and brains to pick about a few things. Got this last November and it is being redone.

hey looking into one posted on craigslist. how much do they weigh and how much could I store in there on a trip?

If it looks like mine and is a 1967 it’s in the 2,600 pound range. This is from some brochures from the 60’s and I have also weighed it on two different scales. Check the tires/springs and you are better off putting the heavy stuff in the tow vehicle assuming it’s a solid one. I keep the load in the trailer to bedding, food, water in the tank, 12v battery, and that’s about it. Hope that helps.

I had this one gutted. What kind of shape is yours in? I’d like to see a picture if you have any.

Congrats and good luck! I’ll be finishing it off this coming year as time permits. Interior trim work, hooking up the 12V battery, adding some lights, window hardware, and lots of other miscellaneous stuff. Had it camping this summer and our family really enjoyed it. I’ll have some more pictures soon. Looking forward to seeing your trailer.

The trailer I am working on will be a “Sister On The Fly” trailer for my wife. Most of the ladies turn them into little doll houses. I will lay out a different floor plan and get all surfaces ready to paint.
The trailer sat out in the weather, with a broken front window, for ten years. So I am repairing rot in the front corner now. Will work my way back, repairing as I go. Then the wife comes along with a paint brush.
Will replace water tank and fresh water system, rewire and put in a new toilet and black water tank.
When it is done, it will hit the road as the “Muleskinner’s Mansion”.

Hi Mary and Dennis,
I have some other pictures of my demo if that will help. My best advice is to search online. There’s lots of useful information on the various sites and forums. Also a vintage nomad group on Facebook as well as Tin Can Tourists. Good luck and happy to help if I can!

I have a 1965 Nomad. Has a beautiful interior with baby blue stove and fridge in pristine condition. The panelling that is original was very cheap veneer Luann and didn’t last in the weather of Florida. Not bad framing but requires full replacement of the panels. I’m also making this a completely dry camper, solar power and compost toilet. If anyone needs any original photos or parts websites I may be able to help. Also, if anyone has any good sites for solar and propane how to/diagrams that would be fantastic.
