Hi all,
I have just bought my first pop up and the seller could not identify the make or model of the camper trailer.

I am hoping the combined experience of the group can help me identify exactly what sort of camper I have bought. Its registration shows it was built in 1979 but does not identify a make and there are no stickers left on the fibreglass body to say who made it.

The trailer needs work and it will give me something to do to keep me out of trouble for a while.



Thanks in advance for any help.
Cheers, Mutton.

Looks very much like our first camper, it was an "ACT" and the name was actually moulded into the fibreglass at the back, it had the same latches and the spring loaded lifters. can you post a photo of the interior with the roof up.

Cheers Ross.

Thanks for replying Rosss..
Below are a couple of photos that may help you identify the mystery camper..

unfortunately we didn't get one without the homemade curtains hiding the bed areas..

I didn't see ACT moulded in the fibreglass anywhere, perhaps it was covered by the spare tyre that is there...





It did have a gas fridge just inside the LHS of the door as you entered the camper but that is gone now.

Thanks a lot for your help. It is much appreciated.

Yep that's it, table in the middle in the way getting into the bed and the sink and stove together on the side. Fridge was gone in ours to, must have leaked as floor was rotten where it originally was.

Have fun,
Cheers Ross.

We pick the camper up tomorrow and cant wait to get started on tidying it up and getting out and using it...
The floor under the fridge looked OK on first inspection but I will have a better look tomorrow.
Thanks again for your help.
Cheers Bruce.

Exactly the same layout as my Jayco Jayflite - is Ok but not much storage and you get a sore back using the stove and sink as it is so low. I am looking to modify mine so that when in use it is higher and folds back down when the camper is folded up.

Thanks Ross and Gary for your help/comments. ACT is not moulded into the back of the camper anywhere and it has now been identified as a Bullett and was built after ACT closed down by someone who got hold of their moulds and modified them a little. Trevor Eastman identified it for me.
I now have the camper in my possession and am working out how to let the bride know I now need a bigger shed to work on the camper.

Cheers
Bruce.
