I think that Sprite is an American made caravan and factory was in Indiana.

Hi Ken, welcome to the forum.
Sam Alper who founded Caravans International opened the US factory in the early 1970s, so your Sprite is unlikely to be earlier than 1970.
There should be a metal plate on the side of the A frame which might reveal more information, the year of manufacture might be 'hidden' in a serial number on the plate.
Are the windows glass or plastic?
There's a website which features classic Sprite caravans that you can contact, maybe they will be able to shed more light?

Everything would be on the opposite side to a British caravan because we drive on the left and the US drives on the right.
The caravan entrance door is always going to be away from the road traffic.
Plastic acrylic caravan windows were introduced in the mid 1970s
P.S.
We don't use text speak on this forum, the abbreviations serve no useful purpose and can make comments difficult to read.
