I would have to say it was owned by a sheet metal worker of some kind. Wonderful!

Wait! Am I the only one noticing a giant robot man? Where is this campground? It's obviously owned by someone with exquisite taste and I want to go there.

The robot man (Gort?) looks like out of the 1950s movie... The Day the Earth Stood Still ??

More info at
Santa Fe Super Chief parade train for special events; Trainman.com
and
Parade Train renovation pictures
Santa Fe Super Chief parade train is a custom, handcrafted vehicle created by the railroad for the "Chicago Railroad Fair" which ran the summers of 1948 and 1949. The Chicago Railroad Fair celebrated the first 100 years of railroads. More about the 1948-1949 Chicago Railroad Fair below...This 33 foot long, one of a kind vehicle was assembled on a new 1948 Dodge 1 ton cab-over, truck chassis, powered by a 6 cylinder engine with 4 speed transmission, stiff truck suspension, manual brakes, manual steering and a 15 gallon gas tank. The top speed was 42 MPH. It was moved long distances by rail. It thrilled parade watchers all over America from 1950 to the 1980's.
MyTrain is now outfitted with a new Ford 460 V8 engine, C6 automatic transmission, soft motor home suspension, power 4 wheel disk brakes, power steering, tilt steering wheel, cruise control and an 83 gallon gas tank. It is a pleasure to drive on the Interstate highway and sensational in parades. The interior is fitted with two front seats and twelve in back. The Super Chief is parade ready with a real railroad crossing bell and locomotive horns.

It's a restaurant Gemini Man is watching over, not a campground. But what is Gemini Man made out of? Fiberglass!
