Finding information about your vintage camper.

The mid 1900's saw an explosion of camper creation, and it can be difficult to trace back some of the smaller models that were made by any one of the many makers out there at the time.  But someone out there has taken their interest in vintage campers to an extreme, and it's for the benefit of everyone else! A gentleman named Juergen Eichermueller has created archival CDs containing scans of magazine ads, newspaper advertisements, brochures, etc. You can see the catalog of CDs he sells, but if you're a Mobile Scouter you'll want to ask for the custom CD with Mobile Scout items. There are a number of ads, brochures and papers included. It's like looking into a lost box of magazines you found in your grandfather's attic.

Bill and Mary L.'s 12 ft Mobile Scout

Mary and Bill have a lovely Mobile Scout they go camping in. It's a lovely redo, thanks to the assistance of their son who is an airline mechanic and pilot and gave it a nice new outer glow.

Welcome to Mobile Scout Madness!

In the past year, my husband and I (but let's be honest, mostly my husband) renovated a 1962 16 ft Mobile Scout camper. A true canned ham. We had a great time discovering what we could about her, and wanted to compile it for others, and hopefully meet other enthusiasts of the cute little campers with the triangle window!
