Mikafa means: Mindener Karrosserie und Fahrzeugbau
the owner bought this 1959 coach built RV from the kids of a Hungarian Count and his wife (who was of Vanderbilt lineage) and they used it for two three month long tours through Europe with their two children. After that it was shipped to the US and remained in use until the 1970's when it was parked in the garage. and could afford this rare one of 50 or so coach built RVs.
This cost about the same as a Mercedes 300 SL gullwing
The owner has posted many photos of this RV on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.800797216678143.1073741844.345776942180175&type=3
