-===== Models ===== 
-14' Scottie, 
-15' Romer,

- 
-===== Interiors ===== 
-In the mid to late 1960s, the trailers were decorated with sheet vinyl flooring with a multicolored star pattern, gold flecked laminate countertops,​ diamond aluminum backsplash, plastic cone shaped electrical light shades, turquoise stove and matching refrigerator,​ and white washed walls, cabinetry and ceiling. ​ 
-===== Standard Features ===== 
-The Scottie, the Romer, and the Highlander featured "solid construction"​ of plywood (not framed in with studs). Sometime in the 1950s the models developed a distinctive "​roll"​ above the front window that was used for storage. Prior to that, Scotsman trailers had a more traditional "​canned ham" shape. The original version re-emerged with the 1970's Romers, as those found have been without the trademark roll. Interior features for these models included a table and two benches (early versions were upholstered in blue plaid) in the front, a fold out couch/bed in the back, and a claustrophobic fold-down bunk above the couch/bed. The kitchen had a stove top (3 to 4 burners) and an icebox (later a refrigerator). A closet was opposite of the kitchen. ​ 
- 
-Early windows were awning style. In the 1960s, jalousie windows were used for the operational windows.  ​
