I was perusing through the Time Life photos on Google, and came across this one. Would it be from this Caravan as mentioned above? The caption read as follows:

Aerial view of 500 trailers drawn by heavy cars, mostly Cadillacs, Chryslers & Osmobiles, parked in concentric circles as their 1,500 Amer. vacationing owners camp for the night during 3,000 mile tour fr. Nogales to Alcapulco & back.
Location: Guyannas, Mexico
Date Taken: January 12, 1955
Photographer: Loomis Dean

You can post more? Please do. Love the old caravan photos. In fact, love seeing any old photos relating to vintage trailers including WBCCI history.
