Hi y'all, I am trying to find some info out about this camper trailer. It's a 1967 Alpine 24 foot. That is about all I know on it. I can't even find something like this on google image search.

That being said it does have a roof leak and the ceiling is taking down. I am about 95ish% sure it is coming from the new AC unit they had put in the roof. Maybe from sagging or just a poor seal. That was a big reason we got a good price on it. It is also the same year as my el camino, and I can't wait to pull up to a camp ground with this combo.

I will be needing some advice on the repairing the ceiling, just looking for some info right now.

If anyone can point me in a direction that would be great.

Welcome to the forum. That's a neat looking rig.

Did you check on TINCANTOURISTS.COM? Sorry, for some reason I can't make a link.
It's a site for vintage RV's. Maybe they have some helpful info for your TT.

I have no advice but to say it looks fantastic especially combined with the El Camino.
Safe travels.

It looks similar to a kencraft. Is it fiberglass? If so, look them up.

It wasn't until the '70's that most trailer manufacturers started reinforcing the roof for A/C units. It might be kind of difficult to sneak a piece of 3/4" plywood under the metal roof to span the opening to the next joist/rafter.

Well, that trailer was probably never designed for a roof AC unit, so adding one and not reinforcing the roof structure could cause your issues.

Take the AC unit off or rebuild the entire roof to hold it.. Those AC unit's are heavy and need the proper install to not leak and to support itself.

Love the 67 El Camino and the trailer with the updated interior.

Good luck!

Mitch

Yes, it's a real 396 big block. I rebuild it a few years ago. My guess with the intake, carb, cam, headers that it is about 50hp over stock. It also has the Turbo 400, so I feel very confident on the drive train side of pulling this trailer.

Not fiberglass. It is all aluminum.

Lucky for me the inside ceiling has already been taken down. I'll try to post some pictures here of what I have to work with.

The past owners said there used to be a window unit installed. Being down in Louisiana the AC is a must have.
