what is this?

OK, now that I have your attention, I know what it is. What I would like to know is if anyone has any history on this place.

Bob Frank was one of the top 10 dealerships for Airstreams in 1957-58.

Ya, it's amazing that anyone would know that piece of trivia.

Actually, I have a lot of extra time on my hands right now so I dug into it online.

That ruler had just enough info on it to get me started.

It's just something I enjoy doing.

If you have the original manual for your Airstream, they usually list all the current dealers for that year in the USA somewhere in there.

There is some info on the link below about that era of trailers. No manuals, but more about that time period. There is also a list in this info as to the top 10 dealerships. There may also be a lot of other stuff you might be interested in there.

Maybe it's a good starting point for you?
