Sorry to hear about the fate of your grandfather's Airstream, that must have been a big disappointment, but I must say it is always great to hear from the family that owned old Airstreams. Caravan #3 that I mentioned earlier was Mexico East Coast Winter 1954, so that concurs with your statement that your grandfather took his Airstream to Mexico in 1954! As you noted, that Airstream would have been older than the one in the photos above. Do you have any old photos you could post?

In any case, thanks for stopping by and providing a little clarity to who may have owned the old Airstream in the photos above!
