Shasta travel trailers
Shasta travel trailers were travel trailers built between 1941 and 2004. Originally constructed in a factory in Los Angeles, California to provide housing for members of the US Armed Forces, the Shasta company expanded then built a production facility in Goshen, Indiana opening in 1958. The company was purchased by Coachmen Industries, Inc. in 1976. At some point in time, Shasta trailers were produced by Shasta Industries, a division of the W.R. Grace Company (this information obtained from a 1975 model year owners manual).
Their high quality and low price made them a favorite with campers all over the western United States.
The "wings" on the rear sides were a visible identifier in the 1960s and beyond. The name was sold to Coachmen Industries. Coachmen marketed Shasta branded travel trailers until 2004. Only vintage trailers were available until 2008 when the brand was reintroduced complete with its identifying wings. The new trailers have updated art deco interiors and are all electric. Their features include stainless steel microwaves, stainless steel sinks and mini blinds, hot plate cooktops, wet baths and cutting edge entertainment features - including a 19" LCD television.
