As I mentioned in the spring edition of Tin Can Tales, we were going to establish a procedure by which John “Canner” Culp‘s 1947 Westcraft would be awarded to a TCT member to see that it got back on the road. It had been on display at the RV Heritage Museum for the past couple of years, but was being neglected and is in need of some TLC.
Mike Greene has graciously stored the trailer the last two winters and will go over it to make sure it is road worthy.
It is felt that the trailer should go to someone that knew John and would better understand its history and importance to Canner Culp. If you are interested in having a chance to become the owner of the Westcraft, send in a letter stating your relationship with John and what your plans would be regarding renovation and use. The names of the individuals that submitted the letters will be eligible for a drawing to be conducted at the 19th Annual Gathering. Trailer and title transfer will be made as soon as possible at the end of the Annual Gathering on May 22nd.
Letters should be sent to Forrest Bone, PO Box 489, Gregory, Michigan 48137.
