Check the Reference Library, lots of information there. Don't know what you mean by automatic pop up?

Harley,

As suggested by PopRichie, go to the the HTF Reference Library. There you will find the Owners Manual for a 1969 Bon Voyage model.

If by auto pop-up you mean a hydraulic power lift system (vice a crank-up manual system), I can assure you that the 1969 Bon Voyage models came from the factory with hydraulic lift either as standard equipment, or as an option. Can't speak for any other models from that year.

Again not sure what you mean, can you post a picture? There were no high, Hi-Lo s all go up for living and down for towing.

"Is there such a model as a high 69 hilo travler ??? it is a 18 ft also"

Owning any 1969 Hi-Lo is a natural "high!"

But seriously, in the 1969 sales brochure, in addition to model numbers, Hi-Lo models were also given names, like "Traveler", or "Bon Voyage." In that model year the Bon Voyage was Hi-Lo's top of the line model and was 19' long (measuring from ball socket to rear bumper). Going from memory (the 1969 brochure is stored in our Hi-Lo for the winter), I'm fairly certain the Traveler was the next size down.

LOL, that is defiantly a Hi-Lo Trailer, It also has the Hi-Lo decal on the top section. just don't tow it in the up position, the cables can't take it and will break. Looks good for it's age. I believe it has been repainted.
