Those are awesome pictures. Makes me wish I had a vintage airstream and a vintage car to tow it with....

So ironic to find this post today. In the opening post I knew the answer. I knew, because today I opened the September 1956 Trail R News I bought from Ebay. In it is an article titled "from Paris to Champagne" by Wally Byam. I will try to remember to bring the magazine home and scan the article. I will post it here. Turns out 7 of those Isettas were purchased at that one stop. The caravanners seem to have shopped there way all over Europe.

good score Frank.

Caravanners greeted with barrels of beer served by alpine hostesses with pretzels hung from their necks...I think the world has changed just a bit.

A fun article to read.

This is from a 1958 Trail R News. The first trailer Wally is selling, the 26 foot tandem, is in one of the photos earlier. The Commodore, it is still out there somewhere I think. She is waiting till I have a opening in my shop to allow herself to be found(wishful thinking, but just the job FTW want to take on). The third trailer, I have a photo of it. I am trying to locate it in my 15,000 photos I have saves on my computer. Hopefully I will post that tomorrow...
