Just a reminder that there is a Vintage Kin forum, where all kinds of nice old "non-Airstream" units are "sighted" and discussed:

https://www.airforums.com/forums/f417/

For instance a Spartan thread:

Thanks Jose, wondering if you visited with them, and were able to check out the rear interior? Is that a PanAmerica toy hauler?

https://www.airforums.com/forums/f50...ot-117702.html
https://www.airforums.com/forums/f503/

I think the PA rear window has a fixed glass panel under the operable window.

Also, the main door is further aft just above.

A great Airstream sighting . . . thanks again.

Hi yes we did visit with them. No it is not a Pan-American. Nice couple they are the third owners after the trailer sat in a barn for many years, and was a bank repo. They now own it and have traveled to the east coast a few times now. Oh and it was a slide out unit! I should have taken a picture from the other side. Very cool!

That Spartan is sitting in my yard right now! It's a sighting I have almost every day.

Ha, ha!

Is that chimney stack on top of your rig or, hopefully, on some structure hidden behind it in the picture?

Yup, that's a chimney! That photo was taken at the seller's house the day I bought it. The previous owner used it as a hunting camp and there was a woodstove inside that was removed before I got it. It's been sitting in my yard ever since waiting for me to get time to do something with it. The exterior is in quite good condition, the inside not so much. One of these days...

Looks like a 1964 Bambi II, but the "II" is missing on the badge.

Bowlus

Hello! We bought a used Bowlus Road Chief for my birthday on Sunday. Picked it up in Florida and the seller shared that it was so complicated and the manufacturer wouldnít help her, that she had to sell it. My husband is great at figuring things out and heís a car geek, so we thought - how hard can it be? Oh My!! We are one day away from selling it on as Bowlus wants us to sign paperwork in order to ask about the model number to order a new cassette toilet. The Company seems almost irritated with us instead of sharing our excitement about the purchase. My question to you airstream experts is - is it hopeless to try and get this high tech trailer to work or will a veteran and seasoned AirStream owner / service provider be able to help? I know Bowlus is not Airstream but itís the closest we can find. Itís unfortunate because we love the trailer. Itís amazing. But we canít get the battery charged or the toilet fixed so weíre in a bind... Thank you for your thoughts. Elisa

I haven't been in a Road Chief, but I can't imagine that it would be too hard to figure out for an experienced RV technician, or even an RVer who has a lot of DIY experience. If you love the trailer don't sell it! I think you just need to find the right person to help you do some problem solving and get you familiar with the systems. It's too bad the company seems unwilling to help, but perhaps you could ask them if there is a Road Chief owner in your area that you could connect with.
You might want to start a new thread on Air Forums to see if you can attract the attention of other Road Chief owners. I'm not sure if there are any other owners on these forums or not.
