Aladdin Vintage Travel Trailer

Aladdin camper trailers were produced by Aladdin Trailer Company located at 3010 S.E. Tualatin Valley Highway, Hillsboro in Oregon.

The original owners of the manufacturing company were Joe Marshall, Vern Bilt, Dick Schroeder, Don Woodcock and Johnny Johnson.

Aladdin produced trailers during the brief period starting from 1963 to 1968.

The company was taken over in 1968 by new owners who kept on producing trailers till the early 1970’s.

The brand name is derived from the famous Middle East folk-tale of Aladdin.

The Aladdin’s name was not only used for trailers, the whole concept was also brought into publicity campaigns. 

For example the company coined the famous slogan for the trailers: “Aladdin Trailers & Campers … are your Magic Carpet to Vacationland.” Not surprisingly, the models names included Hideaway, Magic Carpet, Sultan’s Castle and Arabian Night.

“Hideaway” Model 15

Aladdin has been manufacturing 15 foot models since the beginning of the commercialization of first trailers - that is, since 1963. In 1968 the Hideaway trailer was introduced. It weighted approximately 1300 lbs, was able to sleep 6 people, having 2 beds in rear (pull out bunks). Extra sleeping space was provided by folding the dining table. Hideaway had three-burner stove, heater, dual mode electric/gas fridge and electric/gas lights as well as hand pump sink.

“Sultan's Castle” Model 16 SD-6

In 1966 Aladdin came out with “Sultan's Castle” model 16 SD-6. It was 16ft travel trailer based on earlier 16ft models, however this one had completely redesigned interior.   The traditional bunks were replaced by the gaucho (sofa that extends to become a bed), plus shelf or kid bunk above. Looking left from the door, the kitchen galley and potty room were on the street side of the trailer, and the convertible dinette/bed area was on the curb side. At 16 feet, this trailer was roomy enough for two friends or a couple to share, and perfect for taking the grand-kids for the camping journey with you.
