Over the week of February 19-25, 2019, 200 vintage travel trailers and auto campers enjoyed a celebration of their heritage at Sertoma Youth Ranch. On Saturday, February 23, their open house entertained hundreds of visitors with their historic rigs, lively music and cheerful demeanor.

“We filled the place,” said Forrest Bone, Exalted Royal Tin Can Opener.

This fun-loving group was in Florida’s Nature Coast to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Tin Can Tourists organization. Members and guests came from around the U.S. to fraternize and celebrate one of America’s finest passions – traveling the open road.
