I just purchased my first shasta! Its a compact. the vin i got off the trailer hitch is V-13647..... the title says 1946 but i know that isnt right and the owner said 1956... but i know that isnt right either. I live in michigan and was wondering what year it actually is and if i can change it to the right information on the title.

New member, hi everyone:) Trying to figure out how to post right and completely restore my 1966 Shasta Compact. Any suggestions??? The inside is almost completely gutted, and I saved everything and took lots of pictures and wrote down things I thought were of importantance. I need some advice of disassembling the outside. Help, I want to keep this project moving. Cant wait to post my journey. Thankyou

Thats exciting! We got our first one in May and have been BUSY all summer, she is almost done. Cant wait to see pics, where are you located? Just curious because we noticed someone in our area that has a compact sitting in thier driveway and have been watching on here to see if they join. We are going to 'pop in' on them soon and introduce our Shastas

We just brought home out first Shasta! We are very excited. It's a 1964 but we don't know the model. The vin # is P1881. We bought it in Western NC. Could someone let us know what model it is? I will take more pictures to post but this is all I have right now. It has the original stove and water heater and there is a shower and toilet. Most all the original wood paneling is there which I think is beautiful. We will need some advice on how to go about checking out the plumbing. The previous owner put in a little electric wood stove- fake logs in it-but it heats the place up quick. The original gas heater is there but he was afraid to use it so he put that in. There are a few small water damage spots but the owner said it no longer leaks. We'll see. We also need some advice on roof repair. We're just not sure what the roof should look like and what we should do around the vents and such on the top. We don't want to do a complete restoration but we want it to be good and solid and nice looking and functional. Any tips would be appreciated. Not sure how to post pics here.
