SOLD - 1973 13ft ECO fiberglass camper trailer - $11,500 - Biltmore, Phoenix, AZ

This awesome little trailer is ready to go on your adventure. At 13’ long it fits in almost any parking spot or any campground spot. And at 1000 pound (dry weight) you can pull it easily with just about any vehicle. It definitely has ‘the cute factor”!
The ECO is a descendant of the Boler, brought to the US by Boler American (1972-1974) (You may be familiar with Scamp & Casita, all made with the same molds as the Boler)
When Boler American failed, they decided to use the molds and came up with new names. ECO stands for Eugene-Cal-Owen, the first names of the owners of Century Mfg.

I love this camper and if I could keep it, I would. This camper and I have traveled all over, it pulls like a dream! (I’ve had an Outback, 4-Runner & Sequoia)
My reason for selling, another camper fell into my ‘lap’ and I couldn’t pass it up! So I’m selling as it is, the projects next on my list I’ll pass on to the next lucky owner. It’s a ‘73 and a ‘73 just always needs TLC. I am the 3rd owner, the 2nd owners are good friends, 1st owners are unknown to me.
I dry camped mostly, but not always. For more kitchen/living space I have a Gazelle gazebo. I used a Jackery solar generator to keep my refrigerator/cooler charged and a smaller Jackery for charging/powering all USB powered or rechargeable things. I had plenty of solar lights and/or USB powered lights. For a potty I had a shower/changing tent and a portable potty. For a water system I carried 2-4 gallon water bottles, or more. (I was wanting to do a quick connect system but still looking for the parts)
