Maurizio, I also have a post-war Oxnard trailer. It looks just like the converto but was manufactured in 1951. I have submitted pictures to Dave Aro's converto site. I'm looking forward to Huntsville. It's in my back yard compared to most conventions.

Ciao,
Richard

Maurizio, I realized that I took poor pictures and made it impossible to see that the serial number on my converto was not #0878844, but instead it is #0878344. Sorry about that, I hope you are able to easily change the error on my part. Thanks for the great work! :D

Hi Maurizio,

0360714 is Hobo's in Dithmarschen, Germany.

As it also had the KASSEL rebuilding plate dated 1952, I would think that it came to Europe during the war or shortly thereafter.
Was used in a nursery near Hamburg since the 60s...got it many years ago...missing the tailgate, I still do not know if I should restore it with the inverted V in the tail gate, or, the II reinforcements! :?:

Strange...thought you would mainly find them in the Pacific and States...never seen a WWII picture showing one in the ETO...
