I am not sure if this will be posted since its my first time. I am the lucky owner of the 1960 Geographic
. What a nice and friendly website.
I thought I should provide more information about this rare find:
was built in Oregon, USA in 1960. It was brought to LA (Van Nuys) area to be shown at a very important Trailer show opening on February 6, 1961. It is 24 feet long. Its designed to accomodate a family of 4 comfortably and be self contained for at least one week! It has 2 sofas that fold out to 2 comfortable double beds. Plenty of storages and drawers. One of the drawers actually slides out and turns into a dining table. It has 2 Batteries, 2 Propane
tanks, 50 Gal. Water tank, all hidden under the nose, and many other features which still amaze me every time I walk in. It is truly the ultimate of luxury, technology and craftsmanship. Although it was stripped completely for restoration, the main things that needed to be fixed were the rotted pipes and cables. Everything else just needed to be cleaned, varnished or glued. I thought the stainless steel counter top would be a good touch and relative to 1960. This Trailer was labled the Cadilac of Trailers.
The Geograph was priced for $8,750.00, but in 1962, the manager of the show room bought this it at a discounted price of $5,000.00. I don't think she used it much but she was very organized. The folder that carries all the brochures and articles also has her travel plans and guids, etc.
To answer your question, I have never owned or travelled with a trailer, but I know that it has become a dream to take this one for at least a week trip. I welcome sugestions. I am happy that my 6 Cylinder Ford Explorer can tow it easily. It weighs only 2,500 lb.
