Hey thanks all, I can't tell you how excited I am to get the Holiday. What you see is exactly as I found it. It took almost two years to finalize the deal. I know I paid way too much but I couldn't be happier with the purchase now that I finally have it. What you can't see it that the floor under the bed is completely gone. I thought at first I could get him down but after trying I was afraid he wouldn't sell it at all.
Once I saw it three years ago in the back woods of FLA and then couldn't find ANYTHING out about it at all, I knew I had to get it and put it back in like new condition. I can't wait to get started.

Fred Coldwell, VAC Archive Historian, found a promo brochure directed at retailers. He was graciuos enough to send me a copy. Evidently the Holiday was only in production one year. This is a detail. It will give me a lot of good directions. It's how I knew the shelves over the back bed were originally a bunk bed. The copy says it will sleep 5 adults comfortably!

and yeah on the gallery, I'm sure I was logged in, I did it at least three times?

Here's a snapshot of what it should look like on the top right hand portion of the photo page...

I log on again just to make sure
It tells me I logged on successfully

Hmmm...strange.

Try this: Go to the "Forums" page: http://www.airforums.com/forums/index.php?s=

Then click on the "Member's Photo Albums", the second from the top.

Then "Login" using the button on the top. You should get the following image...if not let me know. I'm thinking that you may not be able to get on through "My Photo Album" if you don't have any pictures posted.

Well Shari, I had tried that before but I just tried it again, twice. It still just gives me "home, register, login" ??
In any event, I just got my first VAC magazine. Vol. 10. Fred Coldwell did an article on Airstreams from 1954-1957. He starts with the Wally Byam Holiday. He says that while the total production of the Holiday is unknown, exiting Holiday serial # 1094 suggests at least 94 were built. My trailer is 1094. I may have the only one left. Man, I'm glad I kept after it even if it did take over two years!

OK well DUH!!! I had cookies cut off! Sorry to be such a bother. I should have thought of that earlier. I tried logging in at work and it worked so I tried to think of what the difference could be. DUH!
SORRY!

Shari,
I finally posted some additional photos. It was a breeze once I got on. I'm not sure I put them in the correct place? 1950s airstreams instead of members galleries but they can be moved later if necessary. Keyword Holiday.
thanks for you patience
Lanny

Thumbs up Great photos!

Lanny:

Thanks for posting all the photos of your Wally Byam Holiday trailer. I was itching to learn more about it; thanks for your scratch. What is the name across the front of the stove top? The burner grates look identical to those on the late 1940's and very early 1950's Coleman ranges used in Airstreams. Great trailer!
