While looking for something else, I came across this:

It's a 1961 Geographic 26', possibly one-off, and there are more pictures here. It was for sale, but it appears the owner has decided to resore it.

Now that's what I call 'making use of the material's properties for stylistic purposes'. Frederick, if that don't make your heart beat faster, you ain't livin'.

Now THAT is just too cool! Just how do Iowa Boys know what the interior will look like restored? Either those are original brochure photos, or there must be another one somewhere that the've gotten their hands on!

My first thought was that I wasn't sure which end was the front... and my next was that the wrong end is the front.

Nice big windows! The flip-down stove units are an interesting touch, too.

Definitely cool, but I think the (aesthetically) matching car is a little later... say, 1961-1963 Ford Thunderbird (the "Bullet Birds").

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Close, Donna, but no cigar. This baby needs the 1961 Chrysler Imperial to complete the set! Same lines, same space-age looks...

I can just imagine a 3 color exterior paint scheme!

"Here's George Jetson."

Roger: You nailed it!

It's a good thing he took it off the market, I'd be in real trouble if it were still available.

I thought someone swiped the cabin off a big ole Chris Craft and put a set of wheels under it.

I want it , I want it, I want it

That has more counter space than my home. This is a sweet looking trailer. I love the vintage art deco look. I am a vintage kind of person all the way. I would be a very happy camper if that was parked in my back yard.

I used to visit their lot looking for bargains when they were known as the Iowa Farm Boys and the main lot was located on San Fernado Road in Glendale or Burbank, don't remember which. The Lankershim lot was storage only not sales back then, 1980's. We used to attend the yearly RV show at Dodger Stadium back then. Harold

All original brochures that came with this trailer. They were all in plastic sheets in a binder. All cabinets are original. They had to take them out, remove the wax, sand and reinstal. All appliances, Magic Chef fold out burners, oven, and Norcold refrigerator are original. They could repair them becasue the original brochure were there with the instrucitons.
