Mystery Solved!!

After months of research...I finally discovered the origin of my coach. Apparently, Irv Perch sold the Arisotcrat company to Boise Cascade in 1969.

What I don't know is if these early designs were ones that Boise got from Irv Perch with the acquisition...or were they unique Boise designs?

Camper repair update.

Replaced the original hot water heater with a brand new one and rebuilt the original avocado green toilet. What a learning experience that was! Still repairing leaks in the plumbing. Down to my last four minor leaks. Should be good to go by the spring of 2013. Then we can take this lovely crate on the road!

Getting close to looking like a camper again.
