Found this on a European vintage
RV site. Does any one know of an
earlier FGRV. This one was made in 1952.
Looks like it has a moulded in vent
on top. They seem to have been way
ahead of North America in FGRV's.

It would look good pulled by a VW Bug.

I wonder what it looks like on the inside? It's very cute!

I know that downunder they have Sunliners that date back into the late 50's.

I want that rig! I'd paint it to look like a snail, and drive on freeways at 55mph.

The back of the trailer looks like the back of the car -- and the car wouldn't be fibreglass, eh?
