[quote="HappyCamper"]Having read through all of that I'm still baffled by mine.
It says 'Le rapide' on the metal plate, series number is 4C05500. The previous owner guessed it was late 80's or later. Doesn't have toilet compartment, has cantilever kitchen, seating is all at one end and is made up of two long berths with gap/table in middle, the table and some slats convert the middle gap to a third bed which actually just makes a huge double out of the 3 beds.
Here are a couple of pics if that helps anyone age it:
