What Happened to the Double-R-Bar Burger?

When I was in my teens, I always preferred the Double-R-Bar Burger from Roy Rogers over any fast food burger in the world. For the unfamiliar, it was a burger (or cheeseburger) with a pile of thinly sliced deli ham on top of the burger.
At some point, they sort of disappeared from the regular Roys menu and now there aren't too many standalone Roys around here in Baltimore. Coincidence?
I often will stop whenever I see a Roys at a turnpike stop during my travels. It's hit or miss endeavor... some places have them and they're just like the sandwich I remember from my youth. Some don't have them at all. Some even soil the memory of this great sandwich by using leftover slabs of ham from their breakfast sandwiches in place of the pillowy deli ham. Sacrilege!
Does anybody have a similar love for the DRBB? Anybody know why it was taken off the regular menu or why it's such a hit or miss affair to find one these days?
I'm obsessing. I apologize...
