Thanks Fred...

The perspective is weird...but it looks too long to be a GlobeTrotter to me...maybe not?

'60 Safari 22' ?

This California made safari from the VINTAGE PHOTO ARCHIVES looks very similar but no burgundy stripe of course.

Interesting photo. Just for interest sake my '58 Traveller is 18' with a door-in-door and one curbside window above the sink. It also has three windows on the other side two for the bunkbeds in the rear and one by the oven/stove.

that cow may seem like a formidible enemy but I agree that a closer look may be needed.

Further proof

After enhancing Stef's photo, I am convinced it's a '60 Safari.

Oh man, you guys are killing me

It is a very small trailer. I'd say it might be a globetrotter, but I don't think it's safari length. The first time I spotted it I thought it was a caravel until I saw the door. But who knows, it is quite a ways back there. My perspective might be messed up too.

Well now, even my husband is curious about what it is after making him play the roving cameraman this afternoon while attempting to snap pictures of it. I think maybe we'll just try to figure out which house it belongs to and go knock on their door. Unfortunately the field isn't particularly close to any houses, so it may take more investigating. I'll let you know how it goes.

ok Stef

But please be sure to post the answer. I'll award you extra karma points if you get the name of that cow.
This has been a very moo-ving thread,
OMG, that was corny, where's that delete button?

The enhancements really brought out the fact that it is indeed a '60 Safari !But I believe a little blur effects would close the deal !

ok Stef, you've dangled the carrot long enough

What is it? Don't let it go unsolved like THIS thread, elsewise we must deduct karma points.

Don't do that! I need all the Karma I can get!

I haven't found a house to knock on the door of yet. It seems to be out in a field, fenced off from neighboring properties, and we can't really determine how to proceed. I'm going to get the addresses around it and send letters to the neighbors hoping I'll hit the owner, or at least someone might point me to the owner. Never know out here in the country, sometimes folks are friendly, sometimes they'll shoot you for snoopin'. Gotta tread lightly...

Easy solution?

Have hubby climb the fence and bond with the cow. Most cows are friendly but a sugar cube or 2 might help. After the bonding process, hubby can mosey over to the AS and read the tag (assuming he hasn't lost interest after making a new friend). It might be wise if he moos and nibbles some grass along the way so as to blend in.
Most farmers are friendly folks. Some will even shoot trespassers with rock salt rather than buckshot

Farms ID

Ok...go to the local farm store that has a farm plat map...or to the local Government Agriculture Farm office, or to the county courthouse.
Know your landmarks so that you know exactly which parcel of land you are checking out.
The farm maps at the government farm office will have the name of the owner, and the operator of the farm on it. They also have the name and address of those people so that the Dept of Agriculture can monitor what they are doing with the land in the farm program.

Wow, good idea! Our county has an online mapping system with both sattelite photos and plat maps. Kind of like mapquest, but cooler. So I turned it on to the photos, found a nearby school, and just panned my way along the roads until I was looking at an overhead view of the farmland in question. Then I just clicked on what looks like the right barn (the cows weren't visible) and asked for a report and got everything from the guys name and address to how much he pays in taxes every year! Now at least I know which house it is and which road to take to get to it. Hopefully I'll soon report back with a positive ID.
