Our Cabana is a 1969 built in Cottage Grove, OR.  I have yet to find another photo of a 69.  In 70 the company sold to black diamond ent. They went to a fiberglass body.  Ours is galvanized steel all 10,000 lbs of her. lol  Repainting her now, see our blog "2012 upgrades".  Fair winds, Tony, Joy and Cool Paw Luke
