Default "Canned Ham" Travel Trailer I.D.

I got this this weekend. I know there is a huge travel trailer thread, but I can't remember the title. Anyone know what brand this is? I won't be home before dark until this weekend.

Kinda dark pictures. Might be a Shasta but looks a little like a Scotty as well. I would look for help at the Shasta travel trailer forum. Someone there would identify it pretty quickly. What's the inside like??? Is it dry??

Seems to be pretty solid. I had to get it quick because two people called and three cars stopped by wanting to buy it while I was there, plus I was in a hurry when I saw it on the side of the road.

Hard to tell from these pics, better light and a shot of the door side whould help. Don't think it a Shasta without windows in the front on the sides. Might be a Hanson or if your lucky a DeVille. There was tons of different manufactures of these in the 50's and a lot looked simular so who knows. No manufacture tag by the front door?

Well, it already made it into the listing of canned ham trailer photos. http://www.google.com/search?q=canne...w=1280&bih=576

I think a lot of local/regional manufactures kicked out their own version in the 50's and 60's much like the pickup camper manufactures did in the 70's and 80's.

When you can start checking it close in the daylight look for tags on the frame, shell o possibly inside the trailer with the mfg and ID number.
