    I think that used to be a "Staggerwing".

    Close - but no cigar. It is a Cessna 190. If you look closely the model number is visible .

    Crazy but that one photo showing the two gals walking past the three camping trailers made me thing about one of my old camping trailers and it looked just like the first on the the right side of the photo.

    We enjoyed camping with the kids in that exact same model and for the life of me I cannot remember the make of the trailer.

    You're correct.
    However the only difference between the two models, which were produced on the same assembly line, was the choice of engine.
    There is no external difference outside the painted model number on the trim.

    190
    Powered by a Continental W67-23 engine of 240 hp (180 kW) and first certified on 1 July 1947.

    195
    Powered by a Jacobs R-755-A engine of 300 hp (225 kW) and first certified on 12 June 1947.

    BOTH of these engines were notorious for high oil consumption rates, even among radials.

    Regards, M.P.

    The interior shots are all Kaiser show cars from 1951. At the top is the Cabalero, done in Palomino and Bison hides, the next is the South Seas, at the last is the Safari, which used lion and zebra skins. All were untreated hides and after a while, they began to smell. That's Clyde Beatty with the pith helmet.
    There's one more show car Kaiser used on the circuit, the Explorer. It used seal, walrus and polar bear for its interior. The car still exists in a friend's collection.
