Vintage Mobile Scout stickers coming soon!

Some time ago I recreated the Mobile Scout logo as seen in the advertising materials I'd found, including a bumper sticker. I've shared that graphic file with people freely, but am almost always asked, "Don't you just have a sticker I could buy?"

Well the answer to that very soon will be, "Yes." I am having vinyl stickers printed and cut as we speak! They will be available very soon, and I'll post how to get your very own on the blog when they are in my hot little hands.

The sticker is designed to give props to this blog, THE place for Mobile Scout information. But, if you don't want that, it's also designed so you can quickly snip off the tag that has the blog URL. But please don't. But I won't stop you. ;-)

The stickers are 4" wide.

I hope you're as excited as I am.

Also coming soon will be another logo version, as submitted by a reader!

Another vintage Mobile Scout logo.

Another vintage Mobile Scout owner and I have been discussing logos. I'm going to recreate this one, which is a version of the other one I found and recreated. Note the patriotic colors -- red, white, blue. It looks almost like an interstate sign... just imagine, the interstate system was not even completed when many of our late 50's and early 60's vintage Mobile Scouts were produced! It was a new and wild invention, reliable roads that stretched across states! Bet you take it for granted, don't you?

I would appreciate any photos you have of Mobile Scout vintage ephemera -- the logos and stickers on the camper, the wiring diagram found inside the upper cabinet doors on some models, the paperwork that came with the camper... if you have ANY of this, send me a high quality digital pic. Or, if you have it and don't want it, send it to me in postal mail, just PM me and I'll give you my address, and I'll pay your postage for sure!
