Our New Project: 1967 Kit Companion Travel Trailer

Jordan and I have been dreaming of getting a vintage travel trailer for many months. He’s been obsessively searching Craigslist for just the right one. When a 1967 Kit Companion popped up one morning for $200 (and only 12 minutes away), we had a feeling that it wouldn’t be quite what we were looking for, but the price was enticing and it had a title so Jordan went to take a look.

As you can see, it was in pretty rough shape. It had been sitting under the original owner’s apple tree since 1982. With the roof vent open!

1967 Kit Companion Jordan decided that despite its rough condition, it was worth the $200 and he bought it!

After scraping the apples off the roof, we were ready to take it home.

Once home, Jor went to work pressure washing it right away so we could get a better look at it.

At this point we had a decision to make. Do we just turn around and sell it now? We could make an easy $300-$400.

After going back and forth about it for some time, Jor decided it would be much more fun to restore it.

We’re not done yet, obviously!

      Hey Rob,

      Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Did you get a 1967? What shape is it in?

    I live on Vancouver Islan, BC and have a 1967 Kit companion that I need to get rid of because I don’t have the ability to restore it. I love the lines any takers?

    Did you by chance find any manuals with your 1967 Kit Companion 1500?

      Hello Sheryl,

      Unfortunately we did not. You ask around on the Kit Companion group on Facebook.
