More and more...

People are now taking notice of my please for DOCUMENTS. I'm getting a few people sending in good clear photos (at high resolution, so you can actually read them) of their owner documents. THANK YOU. I'm adding them to the library, and will post a link to the library once I get it all in order.

You might also enjoy the restoration blog of Molly and her 1959 Mobile Scout!

And MORE Mobile Scout builders/employees have found us and are watching us! Says James P., "I have been in contact with a couple other people who were in management in the sixty's. And we are following your blog site keep up the good work."

I can't thank James enough for the photos he's sending. You're going to LOVE them! (I know, I know, I'm teasing and just need to show you.)

I promise, I will!

Summer is gearing up -- where are YOU going with your Mobile Scout? Scot and I are kicking off the camping year at a vintage camper rally at Milo McIver State Park here in the PNW in May. Next weekend we plan to do like the Boy Scouts do and welcome spring by pulling out all of our gear, washing up Beatrice (our vintage Mobile Scout you see in the header), and making sure we are well stocked. I'm sure we'll get her out for a little brief weekend before the vintage camper rally.

Let me know you're reading by posting a comment to this thread -- with your plans for the summer or just your love of the little tin cans!

Very exciting news!

2013 has certainly started off with a bang here at Mobile Scout Madness. As I look out my window at a beautiful sunny day (about two weeks before the first day of spring, can't get too excited yet), I'm thinking of warm breezes through the camper as we're out at one of our favorite spots.

The past few weeks, I was contacted by a gentleman who worked for Mobile Scout, and no doubt had a part to play in the creation of many of the vintage beauties I and the readers of this blog are caring for. You won't believe the photos he's dug up for me. I'll be sharing those shortly. Stay tuned!

And another person has a family member who is a past employee. More glimpses into history may be coming from there, too.

THANK YOU to those who have contacted me, and taken time to dig up photos and share information. And a plea to anyone else out there who may have information (even if it's just an old document that came with your original 1950's or 1960's Mobile Scout). An image or a scan can create something which lasts a long time! Never hesitate to email me.
