Default To be mine 1962 snyder hi lo

Hello to anyone who still browses this site. I am going to look at a 1962 snyder hi lo camper in a few hours. Think it is maybe 10ft.

I tried to type in the the search bar the "checklist" but it didnt come up with anything relevant imo.

Just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers in the next few hours before I go look at this vintage trailer.

Thanks, if not still good chance I get, if its towable I will likely get it anyway.

Hope you're going to tell us you got it! Without a doubt, I would get it, depending on cost. I'd really like to see pics of it, and your future changes. Best of luck.

So yes I got it...owner thought it was a 1962, but when we looked at registration its listed as a 1974 Snyder VIN is 3900

Hope the pictures upload for you to see...

It needs the inside walls removed and re done, fresh coat of paint, maybe some new foam cushions then re wrap in new material. Ceiling looks like it had water damage, owner said it didnt leak tho.

Guess it has an aluminum roof? will have to start to take it a part next weekend to see what I got myself into! Tons of wasps around so think they are in ceiling.

What I want to do is remove the stove, and install a mini fridge. the battery is in that spot now but will have to relocate I guess. wiring for lights inside I doubt works, maybe do solar panel on roof or just battery powered. Just digesting it all now, hope to find some friendly people who can help me out along the way!!

This is great! a '68 and a '74 found at the same time. It'd be fun to work together via the forum, because you'll find many similarities between the two.

Today Iím going to work on fitting in garage. Hopefully I can get that done early and can start stripping out the cabinets and furniture. My hope is next weekend to get the top disconnected and up off the lower to start stripping the walls and everything out. Dude feel freee to message me. These are both obscure Iím sure we can help each other out. We need an easier way to communicate lol

Nice that looks way better than mine on the inside! I did send an email to Hi Lo to see if they could tell me the year of my unit via the VIN #, not sure if they will respond or not.

I think mine is from the 60's because it is a manual crank with no hydraulics at all. The seem to be in the 70's models

That would be sweet, keep me posted on that! I am hoping the cables on mine are good, need to find what maintenance needs to be performed to them.

In my humble opinion the search bar on this site is not that great when trying to find stuff in my searches so far
