    Here is my '81 Shasta 130S. Picked it up for $300. Original owner bought it in Alaska so it has Suburban furnace in it. I never knew Shasta even Made tent trailers. I have had two Colemans prior to this one. Axle weight is 610 and tongue is 95.

    I think my HHR could pull that. When I saw Shasta I was thinking "What's that doing here?" Tres chic, Doug.

    I didn't know Shasta ever made pop-ups either. When I saw the title I expected to see a small travel trailer with those little wings on the top rear. My dad had such a Shasta after he sold our pop-up in the '60s.

    Looks cool! I'd love to see some inside pics too - especially that heavy-duty furnace. A pop-up in Alaska? I'm betting the furnace could melt iron...

    Never knew about the Shasta pop ups either. We had a Shasta trailer when I was a kid then my wife and I had one when our three daughters were smaller. By the time we had ours, the wings were optional. ha!

    I bought it from the second owner who as had it since 1983. He still had all the original paperwork including the sales literature, owners manuals, and plastic embossed owner registration card. Original owner lived in Skagway, AK. Furnace is awesome as it is one of the older ones that does not need any battery power as there is no blower or wall thermostat. I am in the process of replacing Formica on counters and table. Canvas is usable but I am gong to replace that too. I should have a nice light weight rig for a total of about $1500.

    Nice. What is funny is those cushions look the same as the ones in my 1980 Starcraft.

    I tend to like the old Herculon type covering better than the newer velor stuff after having had both.

    I had an 82 model that was double bunkends. Looked just like this on on the inside. Ice Box, Three burner stove, sink. dinette. Used it for several years. The canvas got rotten and there was a soft spot in the floor. I sold it and bought the 03 Coleman we have now. It was a good little camper and used a lot.

    That's way cool. I'm a sucker for the older and more unique pups.
    Good find!

    It should turn off at the temp you have set the thermostat too, just like in a house. Then turn back on when the temp falls lower. Make sure you get a new carbon monoxide and propane detector. They are only good for 5 years.

    I will echo Orchids sentiment above. And also add when searching for info don’t worry about the “Shasta” part and most pups used the same appliances and systems. Suburban is still making furnaces and water heaters so there’s tons of info out there. Thermostat was near the galley/dinette in mine. PO could have removed it if he was having a problem. If so, shouldn’t be hard to install a new one.
