I don't see a model number on this camp trailer light, and the mantle finally burned through. I do see the metal needs dressed a bit, but it's otherwise in fine condition. Wondering whether anyone can identify the model and tell me which mantle to get. Also, what's the best way to approach the dots of blemish? coleman.2.jpg

Hello and welcome from western Mass. You and @munichchick should talk. I'm guessing a number 21 mantel would work fine, but the pro's will chime in shortly. For the rust spots, you could try some brass wool or even some 0000 steel wool to polish off the corrosion.

It looks like our 1968 Kit Sportsmaster Vintage Trailer's Gas Light. These trailers were made in Long Beach California. It is made by Coleman and I figured out that it is the "Coleman Cool Ray Gas Light Model 3815 A700" with pyrex glass half globe. Ours is missing the glass, heat shield and Mantel and I am trying to find that so we can restore it. We are trying to have as many original things in our trailer as possible as we have brought it back into good shape without re-building it. Not easy to find. It is so nice to see pix of your light with the glass and heat shield attached.

That's the unit alright, Steve. I don't have the matchbox, though. Any idea which size mantel to get? Thank you, Munichchick for the model i.d.

typical when you see a ceramic mantle base that came with a mantle on em ,. usually you tie on another , id just start with 21 and see how it goes .

Thank you, Steve. Any tips on brand/supplier? I've heard many won't hold up more than a few lights.

well im sure  coleman wanted you to use a coleman mantle , a 21 is the size of a coleman mantle . other makers have there own numbers .

Got it. From reading reviews online, looks like there's a bunch out there that say "Coleman" but aren't. My guess is that even the Coleman company is sourcing mantles from China ... but I guess that's just the way it's gone. Thanks, Steve.

Look here, preformed mantles tend to be pricey but should our perform Coleman 21’s. Not sure if these would work or not. I’ve used Coleman 21 in a pinch on remote cabin trips before but durability is not very good.

I frighten easily!

My current shade is Coleman!!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

Coarse weave and also fine weave Coleman silk-lite mantles are pretty tough. I have a coarse weave on my 1952 Milspec and they are durable. They are tough to find and go for a pretty penny when found, check the auction sites. You should be able to get a few bags. They are a size 21 too.

Thank you all. I know a ton more about the lamp than I did yesterday. The Tramper is just 12 feet long, so the Coleman serves as the heater at night. Maybe 6-8 hours of on time is too much?

Thank you Tramper Camp Trailer. This was also helpful to me. I had no idea people used these Coleman Gas Lights as heaters. Our trailer is 13 feet box and does NOT have a heater. So that would be great if it would heat our little trailer. We were going to use a Mr. Buddy Heater but the trailer is small and not much space to place one of these inside.

I have one in my 1973 scotty sportsman.  I am remodeling it and have no plans of keeping it or the Coleman stove that is in it. If anyone is interested in it please contact me.  For some reason it won't let me load pictures.

I bought the Peerless 111 mantles. They drop down an inch or more below the bottom of the glass. Something tells me they're not the correct ones ... unless burning them off reduces the size ??
