Ever seen a Holiday Rambler Trailer like this?

Our Father passed in 2013........and our Mother just passed beginning of this month
In the process of cleaning out the homestead, we ran across a ton of old photo's..........these two, of the first camping trailer they bought in 1966! and they camped still every summer. Even after our Father passed, our Mother still camped in their Park Model at the campground they have been at since 1974............she spent the entire summer up there last year with her 3 weiner dog's and of course us visiting often.
They were wonderful parents and us 3 boy's could of not asked or wanted any better parents!!!!
We are sadden that they had to go........but we are happy that they are together again.......CAMPING!
Here are 2 photo's of their first trailer, photo's dated "1966" and I know it was a couple of years old when they bought it.............does anyone know exactly what year it is??
Those were the day's !!!!!

Sorry for your loss. Camping is such a great family experience and it looks like your parents have passed the tradition on to you as well. Not sure of the year of the trailer, but live seeing the vintage unit/photos. Thanks for sharing!

My folks brought us up RVing & I've done the same with my kids. I don't know the year of that RV. Here is the one my folks first bought. Only difference is ours was green and 1961. This is a 1962 Terry.

Thank you all for your kind words.........our parents were very special people and anyone who ever meet them said the same........we were fortunate to have them!
I was thinking someone on here would be able to tell me the year of it for sure........
Wonder if I posted this thread in the right place???
