Pictures

Here are some photos of a 1966 Go-Lite 15 footer. Photos from 2003. We sold it, but still miss it! Was snowing when we got it home.

All images above this line are of the trailer in the condition we bought it. Basically all electric was dysfunctional but the upholstery was redone. The water system didn't work. The propane system still kinda worked but only had one tank attached.

The Side, Front, and Rear Go-Lite Logos are reproductions made from a crayon rubbing of an original logo painted over in white on the rear hatch. A vector file was made in a program similar to Corel Draw and then given to Fast Signs who cut it out in vinyl as labels. The logos were then put onto thin white sheetmetal which was then riveted to the trailer. This was done because the thin sheetmetal was flat vs. the ridged trailer sides. Not completely original in terms of build, but the logos were a spot on match. The original locations of the logos were the same as where we installed the replacements (front, rear, and both front sides up high.

The Sunchaser Case Awning was found on a Toyota RV in a Junkyard. It was only $25 without poles. Poles were fabricated out of 3/4“ EMT conduit tubing and associated fittings.
