Can you tell us about how you got into the vintage trailer hobby?
A spur of the moment decision! Luckily I have a very indulgent and patient husband when it comes to things like this and a BFF sister who goes along with my crazy ideas! We are loving the friendly community and everyone has been so helpful.
What type of trailers have you owned and what do you have now? What is your dream vintage trailer?
I saw a ratty 1974 Wilderness TT on Facebook Marketplace in the morning and by 6pm I was trailering her home. Previous to that, we owned a 1991 pop-up and before that, camping consisted of staying at the Holiday Inn! I have learned a lot in just a couple of months and am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful trailers at the Fall Gathering.
What do you tow with?
We have a 2016 Silverado that I can use when my husband isn’t working but otherwise we use a 2003 GMC Envoy. I know it sounds small but that thing can tow just under 6,000 lbs so we’re good with our trailer for now.
Do you attend rallies and what do you like the most about attending a rally?
We haven’t attending any rallies yet but I keep an eye out for interesting locations and groups. We’d love to do rallies in the near future!
Why did you decide to join the Tin Can Tourists?
So, when I posted about my purchase of the ’74 TT, an old friend of mine told me that her brother was involved in a vintage trailer group. That was such a fun lead-in to our vintage trailer adventure. We can’t wait to meet you, Terry Bone! It looks like an amazing group of people and were excited to be a part of it!
What are your camping plans for this year?
Since we just purchased our camper in August of this year, we’re not sure how much camping we’ll get to do before the winter sets in. For now, we’ve fixed up the interior to be liveable and are planning more intensive fixing while the cold weather is around. Hopefully we’ll have a full schedule next summer
