I have a number of older campers, a motorhome made by Anheuser-Busch during prohibition. The first patented travel trailer. Four file drawers, full of original brochures. Plus about 10 other campers made from 1919 to about 35. I also have all of the props that would go with these campers. The majority are not restored but in good condition. I also was made a member of the original 10 canters club. And they gave me all of the artifacts, including the podium banners, and original stamp for correspondence. I was unable to post this on things for sale. Any help you could give me would be appreciated..
