I just love that little Field and Stream. That is my most favorite color in vintage. I am member at tnttt.com and had seen it before. We considered building and still consider it off and on.
In our case, in our location, we compete against a re-seller for anything molded fiberglass that comes up within about 4 hours of where we live and that person must sit at the computer waiting, can travel at a moment's notice, and puts up the same unit at 150% or more of the listed price that I saw in the original ad. That's business and I understand it but our choice is either buy new molded fiberglass or choose another type unit. Our location is really the pits when it comes to purchasing anything at all but the house is on the market, dead one, but that still offers hope.
I think it is good to have a healthy attitude toward restoring anything from the past. One of my dreams is to go to the RV Hall of Fame in Elkhart which is actually just maybe 30 miles from where I grew up but no museum at that time. This is a link and it looks so cool: RV/MH Hall of Fame - Museum - Library - Conference Center
I love RVs of ALL types. My interest in molded fiberglass started when I saw one in AZ (1990) that the neighbors pulled with a Pinto wagon. It was the tiny 13' Scamp
. I'm guessing it had to be nearly empty inside. She said they had no problems going through the mountains. They had pulled it from Wisconsin.
To me, in the molded fiberglass, nothing is more beautiful than the Scamp
There is a definite revival of the older units and in RVing. Was looking at what RV sites could be reserved in some of the KS parks next month and people are definitely getting out there.
