Described as “happiness on wheels” vintage trailers have steadily been increasing in popularity in recent years. The interest in these relics of road history has sparked in part because of new television shows such as “Flipping RVs” which dedicate 30 minutes to restoring them to their former or new glory.
An internet search will find groups and businesses dedicated to vehicles that bring back memories of days before cell phones and television when families would often squeeze into tiny spaces to play cards, eat and sleep.
The Tin Can Tourists is one of the many groups that celebrates the history of these recreational vehicles and use specific guidelines for judging in shows. The guidelines state that a trailer must be 25 years old to be considered vintage. A motor home is considered vintage if it is 20 years old.
