 +===== History =====   
 +
 +Jack Watts was the owner of the original Jack's trailer service and later Scotsman Industries in Gardena, California. ​ He was a native of Oklahoma who lived in Palos Verdes, California.
 +===== Manufacturer Information =====
 +Jack's Trailer Service, Gardena, CA
 +
 +Coffeyville,​ KS
 +
 +===== Years built =====
 +At least from 1947 till 1973, possibly later.
 +
 +===== Models =====
 +14' Scottie,
 +15' Romer,
 +17' Highlander
 +
 +===== 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.  ​
