Help identify

We picked up this little unit for "short" trips

Not sure if it's a Flying Cloud or maybe an Argosy.

No documentation. Just a bill of sale.

Moderator: please move to appropriate trailer thread.

Thanks,

Dennis

My object may be more of a challenge for Forum members to help identify than what appeared to me to be a Argosy caricature. I found this item in a 1959 26' Overlander that I bought for parts in Arizona. It appears that it should be mounted with the sheet metal panel down so that it forms a cradle to hold something but what? You can also see the wire brackets that appear to be used to retain something in the cradle. It has a grocery store price tag marked $0.79, yes seventy-nine cents! Was it something typically used with Airstream travel trailers or did someone just through a piece of junk in the trailer?

My guess, without more pictures or measurements, would be either a paper towel holder or a hands free cookbook holder. Either way, I don't believe it is/was Airstream issue.

I thought it might be a frame for holding plastic grocery bags to be used for trash. Just loop the handles over and around the curves in the frame.

Gosh Don, that looks suspiciously like something but I can't place what it is at the moment. I was thinking along the lines of a weapon one's wife would use to shut the passenger up when he's offering driving/towing coaching but it's got too many specific identifying marks for the police to use when determining the assault weapon used.

I took a quick boo in my bathroom to see if it would be for anything in there and other than a book rack, which it isn't, it doesn't go there.

Having sizes would help put it into perspective.

safari57, I hadn't thought of it as a wife's weapon, possibly to truss up the driver when he/me want to return the civility received from others idiots on the road.

flyfshr, you may have seen it in the back of the Overlander that I got from Andy. For the life of us we couldn't think of what it might be but, Insideout's suggestion that it was to hold grocery bags for filling with trash may be close. With that suggestion my memory was jogged. It may be the metal rack that holds the bundle of new plastic grocery bags to have one torn loose to be filled with groceries. I'll have to stop at Stater Brothers and take a look tomorrow. That might explain the 79 cent price tag stuck on the side.

thanks for the help, I post a confirmatin if I find out what it is.

Dennis, Sort of looks like this model may be for the birds. I hope you didn't pay too much for it. I have one that is a cookie jar. Nice to see your new purchase.
