Vintage travel trailer caravan to tour historic Pennsylvania highway

An RV caravan from the Tin Can Tourists will tour Pennsylvania Highway 6 this June. The caravan of classic trailers will travel across at least half of the highway with stops in several communities and campgrounds along the way.

From June 4 to June 14, a caravan of approximately 30 classic vehicles and camping trailers will visit communities and historic sites across the western half of the historic and scenic highway. The caravan plans to stop for two days in a town or at a campground and hold an “open house” for residents and visitors to see these antique and mostly restored cars, trucks and classic recreational vehicles.

On Friday, June 4, traveling east on Route 6 from the Ohio line, the caravan will arrive at the Brookdale Family Campground in Meadville, near mile marker 24. An Open House will be held on Saturday, June 5, from 1 to 4 p.m.

On Sunday, June 6, the caravan will travel to the town of Port Allegany in McKean County, between mile marker 159 and 160, for a community event including a “Walk Around” viewing of the vintage trailers and motor coaches, participation in a car show and a meal.

An Open House on Monday, June 7 will take place at the nearby Allegheny River Campground, Roulette, near mile marker 170 from 3 to 7 p.m.

On Tuesday, June 8, the caravan will travel to Galeton, near mile marker 198, where it will set up in the John J Collins Memorial Park, right on the lake. An open house will be held on Wednesday, June 9 from 1 to 4 p.m..

The caravan moves in Mansfield, near mile marker 234 on Thursday, June 10, where it will set up in Town Park. An open house will be held on Friday, June 11 from 1 to 4 p.m.

On Saturday, June 12th, the caravan turns around and heads back west to Conneaut Lake Park and ends its stay in Pennsylvania.

The Tin Can Tourists is an all make and model vintage trailer and motor coach club. Its goal is to promote and preserve vintage trailers and motor coaches through gatherings and information exchange. For more information, please contact the PA Route 6 Heritage Corporation at 814-435-7706.
