Anyone ever seen one of these?

1947 Trailway built by the Steeves Brother in Oregon. Cannot find ANYTHING on this model, does anyone have any leads on manuals or any literature at all? Planning on picking it up in the next week or two but would like to know a bit more about it, might be worth restoring.

The interior is 90% wood. The main ribbing is 2x2 lumber and the floor is plywood. The wall coverings are particle board upholstered in pink velvet! Everything inside will need to be completely rebuilt due to rot. I have done some wood finishing before so it might be finished in a hardwood of some kind.

I know my boler buddies will be so jealous when they see this thing.

You might want to contact the RV Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart. They have a large library with a lot of liturature on old RVs. And they might like to have some pictures of your trailer.

I called them, and their historian (who charges for his services) is out of town until the 25th. Anyone in Elkhart want to go look this up for me? lol. I will check with the historian when he returns, and post any info he has.
