Rene’ Perret – Washington State Representative:
Hello all. My name is Rene’ Perret, my handsome guy, Jeremy Ralston, and I live in SW Washington. Together we have 5 adult children, 1 adorable grandbaby, and 1 fur baby. We started our vintage trailer addiction with a 1955 Aloha we found on Craigslist in 2012. “Tin Lizzy” was restored right in our carport, we signed up for our first rally, Mt. Baker Vintage Trailer Rally and from there we’ve been taking BIG gulps of the Vintage Trailer Kool-Aid ever since. I joined Sisters on the Fly, started an Aloha Facebook page with a friend and began making connections with some wonderful people. 6 years later we now host the Mt. Baker Rally, largest vintage trailer gathering in the NW. We have 2 personal trailers we currently use, a 1955 Aloha and 1956 Jewel. Our 1953 Nashua is next on our list for restoration. We own 20 trailers ranging from 1942-1962, and we started a business Down River Vintage Trailer Restoration Down River Vintage Trailer Restoration. We live in a floating home on the river. We love this lifestyle and attend approximately 12 rally’s a year. We have made the best friendships that we would not trade for anything. We are fully embracing this honor to represent Tin Can Tourist in Washington State and can’t wait to make more amazing connections in the Vintage Trailer world.
