That is deliciously funky! I feel like I've seen a photo of something that same shape recently, but in turquoise. I think it was a 1960s model of....something or other. Ebay, maybe.

Hi: Peter Crowl... Nifty fifties something??? I've seen it befire but my photo memory card is full so I can't recall it. My dad looked at a 59 Desoto that had fins like that but he didn't buy it!!! Darn.

I remembered that it reminds me a lot of this Roya-Lite on Fiberglass RVs For Sale. But looking at it now, I see there are a number of details that are different.

The second picture looks like an old time ambulance when they used station wagons.

Donna hit that nail on the head. The white one was for sale a while back but I don't remember where I saw the ad.

Good luck Roland! The link I posted went back to a thread from 12-09-2007, 08:46 PM ... gad, more than three years ago. I wished we would have captured more pictures, this maybe the only ones we'll see. Hindsight is a wonderful thing! Wonder if it will make it into the Albums and listing on the home page?

Donna, how do you pull that stuff out of the air? I am amazed at how much you find for people... You definately have a talent with this camper stuff! I wonder how difficult it would be to incorporate some fins on to a scamp......

Peter, where did you find the pictures you posted in the top post? Are there any interior shots? Cool trailer!

Mark, I don't think it would be that difficult to add fins or anything else fiberglassed for someone who has worked with fiberglass... but, for good looks.. I think the trailer needs to be the right shape and the Pleasurecraft certainly is that! One of the coolest changes I've seen to these trailers, is in the wheel well area... fender flares, etc. to match a classic tug. Check out Fred Smailies work on the fender of this Boler: Boler trailer owners passionate about their RVs Looks much nicer than black pinch welt... doncha think!
