Vintage travel trailers
Some vintage travel trailers date back to the 1930’s and 40’s. These are really fun to have because they have so many antique details to them. They come in many different sizes and styles, from the very small and basic tent trailer, to the larger trailers that are nearly the size of a small apartment today. These vintage travel trailers are oddly almost as advanced as the trailers we have today, with the plumbing and cooking features you want while out on the road. And many of them have a very high kitsch factor, making them great for collectors and stylish young people alike.
The 1950’s brought us a special kind of vintage travel trailers. Family was very important in this post-war time period, and the family vacation was just getting its legs. Vintage travel trailers from this decade tend to reflect America’s love of the spaceship and are often decked out in the shiniest metal exteriors and shaped like bullets or submarines. The aesthetics of these machines are excellent, but don’t forget they are also built with that superior vintage quality, making them highly durable and a wonderful long-term investment.
In the 1960’s families and individuals started living more for the moment and headed out to see more of the world. Camping was also very popular in the 1960’s and 1970’s and so the vintage travel trailer known as the camper was born. These camper trailers provided safe and comfortable ways to escape into the great outdoors or a simple way to live off the land or on the road. These vintage travel trailers are light and compact, and can be easily towed by a small truck and stored in your garage or driveway.
If you are one who loves the look of a vintage travel trailer, but also wants something high-tech, there are many options available. Many mechanics and hobby restoration specialists are seeing the value of refurbishing vintage travel trailers. If you are willing to spend the money, you can have a true vintage trailer, but with a modern look and all the conveniences of home. Another option for getting the look of a vintage travel trailer with a newer feel is to purchase an imitation vintage travel trailer. These trailers are made with the vintage look in mind, but are made of all new materials and have that new clean feeling that will make you feel at home while on the road.
