As I was looking around in Google Image Search I realized that serial number 1906 wasn't the first Aviator made. If you look at the version taken to RV shows
back in late 2011 and early 2012
, it is slightly different from the versions we have. The prototype version was also used on the early sales brochure
The easiest way is to tell the prototype is from the different font windows on the sides. Ours are rectangular and these are larger, almost trapezoidal, and cover with glass where our LED reading lights are located. This version also has a ying-yang-like design in the dining table.
In contrast, 1906 was built like normal. FunTime Cleburne still has the listing for 1906 online
and you can see the regular window (Rodney bought that one and took it to Utah).
So, the question is... were's the prototype? If it still exists, that would make 71 (plus the white mutts). The prototype would be the rarest of the rare. Someone needs to check Kevin McArt's house :-)
