Historic "Geographic" Trailer

Oregon Gathering campers may remember the breathtakingly restored 1960 Geographic Trailer which had its maiden rebirthing voyage to our Gathering 5-6 years ago. It was restored by a Los Angeles architect named Bardy Azadmard. Most of us at the rally got to tour this gem and hear its history from Bardy, who came to Bandon with 2 friends.

My news is that the Geographic was sold to a well known fashion designer who has a home in France and it is being shipped by sea. It sold for, "Lets say you could buy a house for that price! ;-) " per Bardy.

Here's the link to the entire history, newspaper articles and more.

Wow, Eric thanks for sharing this bit of info. I'm sorry to see it's leaving the U.S. as it's truly a unique (beyond words) molded trailer. I'm very glad I was one (of many) that got to tour it at the Oregon Gathering.

I always wondered what happened to the other "4" trailers? I know there are at least three different ones in the pictures I have seen.

This really is the most spectacular RV on the planet, I think. I am glad I never got to see it in person because I'd have handcuffed myself to the refirgerator or something and refused to leave, and wouldn't that be embarrassing.
