Boy does that bring back memories! When I was 16 in 1970, my mother bought a used Scotty and she, my 10-year old brother and our cocker spaniel traveled from NJ to CA along the southern route and back through Yellowstone and Banff then across Canada. Thatís probably why I RV now. I remember my mom would get too tired to drive so she had me drive, pulling the trailer with our station wagon- before I had a driverís license! My brother used the Scotty until a tree fell on it and destroyed it. I think he built a homemade camper on the chassis. I see one every year at a bluegrass festival in VT, but itís the painted version. We had the bare aluminum like yours. Good luck with your restoration- it looks great so far!

My wife and her family took a trip to Yellowstone in the early 1960s in a borrowed Serro Scottie. That got her parents into RVing. We were married in 1969 and were always looking at RVs and sailboats. We tent camped and in 1984 finally bought our first RV. Now we have been full time in our 40 foot 5th wheel for 8 years now.

Prior to retiring, we restored 2 aluminum trailers...a 1979 Silver Streak and a 1989 Avion. Once you get the RV fever, you are lost.
