    Congratulations on your new 1971 Travelux. I would definetly like any pics and info you have to offer.
    My father Bob Holliday was the initiator behind the Canadian built streamlined trailer. I am putting together as much
    info on them that I can get. I still have the original model that he built prior to them going into production in the 1966/67
    era. I'm still very early in my research and there is very little info out there on them. I am trying to track serial numbers, where they are currently and what component options various models had to offer. Your model was probably
    made in the Newmarket Ontario location, They had four manufacturing locations over the years, five if I count
    the initial location in Aurora Ontario but I don't think the company actually built a streamlined out of there. Dad did leave the company in the early seventies to go into business on his own, this in trailer repairs, of couse specializing
    in the Travelux. He was there go to guy from then to the end (about 1977/78) when he bought at auction the remaining
    frames, end sections etc,etc. There was also another bidder who got quite a bit of stock. Unfortunately dad passed away
    suddenly in 1979 and we auctioned what remained in 1980. Thanks in advance for any info that you can provide. Also
    if you have any questions please post. I am finding information from other forums also. I quess my ultimate goal is to
    keep them rolling.

    Hey RogerH. Here is some more info for your file on Travelux trailers.

    I have a 21' Travelux Serial # 21047912106, built at 401 Dissette Street, in Bradford, Ontario. I am presuming that 1979 was the year for construction (clever analysis of serial #). The trailer, however, is white, which appears to be quite unusual. It has a dinette in the front and a couch/bed at the rear. Bath is opposite the door. It is in excellent shape, and it pulls wonderfully. Two axels are so much better than one. If you would like a photo or two, please let me know. Also, if you have any info on my trailer, I would be pleased to know more.
