67 Aristocrat Land Commander with a small potty room. Very little rot showing. Should be a fun build.
Congrats! Wow, there shouldn't be any suprises on that model! I like that body shape best to work on.
Easier cutting angles on wooden frame sticks. No need for a band saw for curves on that one either. Frame sticks are all 1" thick. Once you get all the tricks down on that body shape, they are a cake walk compaired to others. Good Luck to ya and have fun, I know I would. soup
Aristocrat was in a murderous dual with the Shasta Company. I was fortunate enough to know Neal Vonada (Von's Trailer sales in Seattle) via the Aristo forum. His best friend was Irv Perch! The history that Neal talked about was amazing.They even boated a couple of trailers to Hawaii in the day.
My 3 Aristocrats were very well built compared to Shastas. However, mine were all mid 60s rather than earlier canned hams. And they all had VONS stickers! Yeah, man.
