Janet I agree. I need a winning powerball ticket to buy the orchard across the street. Across town there is a big barn I can have if I could move it. Just a few hundred k short I think, probably 7 figures

Congratulations, and better you than me! It would be nice to have but I would much rather spend my time camping.

There is a similar trailer with the decals or painting detailing locations visited that is suspended in the air at the RV Museum in Amarillo. Not sure the history but I bet they have it online - could somehow dovetail or relate to this one as another piece of the history puzzle

I wish you were closer

Congratulations!!! Now, dive into it. Wish you were closer because I have an entire, original interior and the new plywood walls for my Liner. I am sure most of it would be the same as your project...if your going original. I have my eye on you.

Too bad you're on the other side of the country. The restoration would be the anchor for a terrific documentary film. I'd love to make it.

OMG! You are a brave man, but if ever there was a reason to find the courage, this is it! A wonderful find that will be well worth the effort.
No WD, but a great DW!

Your water heater

I've got the same style water heater I took off a 1966 Action c-10 truck camper. I replaced it with an Atwood gas 6gal. Send me a separate picture of yours and maybe I can compair better. I still have it and it
Is in good condition. Good day Bob C.

The moped on the back is a Vela Solex. My friend is one of the last dealers of these mopeds. They are French and friction drive.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
