There is some information about Gem at this site http://tinyurl.com/nz8gppb.
Nothing about the Bugg but you can start that and others may show up too.

Yes ty,I have been to said sites all ready,and joined,seems very few know about these,still waiting on say/////// hard evidence..
And whats kinda strange is if ya got to the freewebs site,scroll down to the blue 1965,it has the name plate with a vin of 7500.
If ya look at my pics,mine is 7500,and it looks like the same silicone smudge on the top left,but mine is not blue,and has no trace of blue on it,plus im told its a 62,,so?????

From the information that people posted for you, yours appears to be in the 1965-66 range. I'm guessing that you don't have a title, so the value is in the $300 - 1500 range depending on condition. Rarity in the old campers does not necessarily equate to value, mass produced units with name recognition are more sought after. It's a cute camper that you should use as is or fix up and use. Either way, it'll get a lot of looks and people will always want to see inside and ask you a ton of questions.

The 65s and 66s are much,much bigger..
it has been narrowed down too a 62 or 63,I believe it is a 62,as a 63 and above have the sink and stove to the right side of trailer,were mine are at the head.
And in after 65 the name plates changed to GEM INDUSTRIES as the company was sold at that time.
Still lookin for said title.
