arcosine may prefer to provide actionable detail by Personal Message.

Somewhere I have a picture I took of a Bowlus in the 1960s, with a 10-speed bicycle chained to the tongue. Not publication quality though.

Thread needs more pictures:

If you want to know what these are, please patronize the JACG thread.

Is it the Bowlus Papoose?,or what became the Airstream Clipper after the Bowlus bankruptcy? They were all boat-tailed,unlike anything Airstream manufactured.

My 1952 Silver Streak Clipper, like this one, was double ended:

Bolusi were asymmetrical.

The one that was pictured is a Road Chief. The Papoose was short as an Airstream Bambi.
