1951 - The First Caravan Trailer Plaque

Wally had a special trailer plaque made for all of us that arrived in Managua, Nicarugua. I want to share it with you. I was twelve at the time and traveled with Wally. My parents Helen and Henry Schwamborn made arrangements for me to leave the 8th grade for four months.

If you wish additional historical stories, pictures and collectors items go to the Sierra Neveda Units web page,
I have been working with Diane Leipper it preserving the history of Wally Byam, Helen Byam Schwamborn, the WBCCI and Airstream.

Pee Wee. Thank you for posting that.

I enjoy the histories you post. I appreciate it.

I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

Nice, very nice historical post. It's great to see these things. It would be nice to reproduce something like this for forum rallies as a way to mark (or make) history ourselves.
