 +===== Manufacturer Information =====

 +
 +Del Rey (Not Del Ray) started in our garage in the late 50's as "​Lil'​ Camper"​ and then later changed to "Le Safari"​. Airstream already had the name registered (Le Safari) so dad chose the name Del Rey, Spanish for "Of the King". Nicknamed the "King of Campers"​ and with the king's crown cutout on the magazine rack, the models were copied but never duplicated.

 +‎Jim Overhulser‎ - My dad manufactured these behemoths back in the day and will be inducted into the RV/MH Hall of Fame next August (2016). This is exciting for us as a family! I will be placing pdf's of brochures and the like for anyone interested. Nothing to sell and most of the hard copy will go to the museum archive at his induction.
 +The picture/​caption below was in the Automotive Journal, April 7, 1969. Observe the long, crew cab overhang and the squat at the rear axle. Gas was 25 cents/​gallon.
