New Member interview with Elizabeth Patzke

Can you tell us about how you got into the vintage trailer hobby?  I’ve always loved camping – and makeovers.  I discovered vintage trailers through Pinterest

What type of trailers have you owned and what do you have now? What is your dream vintage trailer?    We had a 1969 tent trailer when I was a kid.  We camped once, then it was destroyed in a tornado.  Or current trailer is a 1967 Cardinal.  Once it’s refurbished, it will pretty much BE my dream vintage trailer.  I have soooo much to learn though.  I have stripped the paint and I’m trying to repaint it now.  The drip railing is defeating me.

What do you tow with?  We have a 4 cylinder Tacoma.  NOT ideal.  We’re planning to get a bigger truck soon.

Do you attend rallies and what do you like the most about attending a rally?  This will be our first rally.  I want to ask people how they did their refurbishing or restoring.

Why did you decide to join the Tin Can Tourists?  We’d like to meet people who share our interests.

What are your camping plans for this year?  We’re going to camp near home a couple of times, then go to the Michigan rally.

This is the before picture.  There is no “after” yet!
