Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the forum!

My best advice is to become a member of the Trailmanor Owners Forum. Right now you have a free 30 day trial membership. The thirty days will go by very quickly. After the free trial your access to information that you may need for a camper over 20 years old will not be available. The very smaill fee to join is worth every penny.
2019 FORD 150.
2007 Trailmanor 3124KS...still got it.
Robin 1,000 Lb Weight Distributing Hitch ...still got it.

We replaced the tires on the TM July 2017 I will update when I have time to get the specs

What's new...we went to all LED lighting and love them.

New 3/25/16 two new horizontal propane tanks.

There is another active member here who I think has a slightly older TM than yours, her name is MariaG, check out her posts. She has always been helpful to others who need restoration advice and also has posted a lot of pictures.

Congrats on your vintage TM purchase and welcome to the board!

Our TM is 14 years old and still going strong, wouldn't hesitate to tow it across country if I had the time and the money....

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your purchase! I've been woefully lazy about working on the TM this summer - we had our son graduate from high school and that and the whole college thing has taken oodles of time. However, if you click on the link below in my signature, you'll find a lot of rehab info. Definitely become a member here, the info and help is priceless.

MariaG is a wonderful source. In addition, check out the Wayback Machine on the Internet (Google it) for some archived content from the factory, at Finally, almost 10 years ago we had some really good restoration information from a member who signed in as Happy Trails. Not the same as our current member HappyTrails. He had an entire web site up, and it is now gone, but one of our members spent some time recapturing whatever he could. Along with many other useful things, the result of his effort is in the TM Tech Library, aka TM Info You Won't Find Anywhere Else.

As for an owner's manual - you may be able to get it from a member here, but if you can't, and if it isn't found on the Wayback Machine, I have no ideas.

I think (but others may have better ideas) that an M23 is roughly the same as the current 2619, or the earlier 2518. But there was a recent discussion of this, and a Search may turn it up. Try it.
