Avion & Vintage Camping Links, AVION SPECIFIC BOOKS, DECALS, ETC.

 

Below are links and sources we have found online that provide a myriad of information for Avion owners as well as simply being great resources for anyone owning a vintage camper.I continue to add as more are found (and I have the time!)

Best to start here….History of the Avion Luxury Travel Coaches

AVION RESOURCE LINKS:

Publications: there are precious few (really only one) hard copy book published about the Avion and Cayo story.  There are occasional magazine stories that could be found in old trailer life, etc. magazine—but none come close to the wealth of knowledge that is found in the book below.  Granted, some of the book is Mr. Muncy’s personal musings about life with an Avion- but between this book and the online Fb resources and Silver Avion website by Dr G–(see link below for this site) this book below is the MUST HAVE!

Book Name:       SILVER AVIONS AND CAYOS

by Bob Muncy, a long time Avion owner and very involved with the Avion Travelcades etc. wrote and published a “must have” book that gives a wonderful history to the company as well as chapters on spec details, evolution in design of the Avion’s, stories about attending and helping to put on the Travelcade rallies as well as a bevvy of awesome photos from his journeys, Avion Corp/Cayo corp. archives and others who submitted photos of their beloved Avion’s for the publication of the book.

Well worth the read and a great gift to an Avion lover! (yes, we have the book!)

Here is where we ordered ours from:

ISBN # is:   978-0-578-03731-8

SOCIAL MEDIA SITES:

Facebook offers many online forum sites where current, former or “wanna be” owners can share stories, resources, photos of restoration projects or simply ask a question!
