We are very pleased to announce that Rob and Shari Davis have accepted the position as the Colorado State Representatives for the Tin Can Tourists.
Rob Davis, an architect and his wife Shari, an interior designer living in Edgewater, Colorado. They were initially drawn to vintage trailers by their classic ‘Americana’ design. Knowing nothing about them, in 2002 they bought a 1964 Airstream listed in the local classifieds which needed only minor work. When a 1956 Airstream with a floor plan that Shari just loved became available in 2008, they snapped it up and jumped on the slippery slope of a major restoration. 27 months and 3,900 hours later they now have the perfect trailer for their needs and wish to use it to meet as many like-minded folks as possible. After associating with the single-brand trailer organization for 9 years, they desired to extend their camping experience to those with various makes. What better way to do that than to join the Tin Can Tourists? Viewing pictures of TCT gatherings it appeared there was a large number of vintage tow vehicles owned by the membership, so they have recently taken that next step and acquired a 1963 Suburban to pull their mobile abode.
Rob & Shari have been integral in hosting large vintage rallies in the Rocky Mountains for the last 8 years. They are excited to help grow TCT membership in Colorado through networking, personal contact and assisting Karen Campbell with the 2011 TCT Gathering.

Editor Note: Many of our Regional areas are geographically too big for an individual to host Gatherings that would be suitable for many of the regional members. Penny Cotter is the representative for California and hosts an annual event in Coloma. Karen Campbell, Southwest Representative, has hosted Gatherings in both New Mexico and Arizona. It is our hope that other members might want to host an annual event in their home state. The Regional Representative for the area would work with the state representative providing suggestions and promotional support. TCT would do the same through the website and other social media outlets. This would be coordinated by our webmaster, Terry Bone.
Karen Campbell will be working with the Davis’s on the following event:
