1980 Coachmen logo, Font type?

Hi All. I'm trying to find the correct font used in the Coachmen logo on our 1980 Coachmen motorhome. I thought I had it when I came across the "Motter Tektura" font (this was the font type used by Apple Computers around the same time).... Unfortunately it's not exactly the same. (The "e" is different and the spacings aren't quite right.. )



Any Font experts out there that can identify the EXACT font type used by Coachmen in the 80's? See our wagon below....

You can do what I did - take a high rez photo of what you have there and clean it up in Photoshop and then use an online web site to create a Vector version - clean that up using something Adobe Illustrator and you can then create whatever sizes you need.

Maybe try Find my Font - Font Identification Software Application you can use a 30 day free trial that works pretty good. you can use your original picture for it to pull from. Worked for me, good luck! SNO

Call Coachman.

They may have not only the information, but decals or transfers to sell (maybe even give to a restorer). I have had this happen on more than a few occasions .
