New Member Interview with Diana Hadad

Can you tell us about how you got into the vintage trailer hobby?

I have been camping and boating for years. My family always had larger vehicles and vessels. I am at a stage where I wanted something I could manage on my own. Last year, I bought my first vintage trailer because they are so darned cute! Notice, I said “first.” I feel like this will be a passion of mine for years to come. 

What type of trailers have you owned and what do you have now? What is your dream vintage trailer?

I currently have a 1966 Trotwood. The birch interior is homey.  I adore it.  My daughter, however, is vocal that she prefers the Holiday Rambler we used to own. I don’t need a T.V. or a washer/dryer to camp. My dream trailer has to be a Spartan Manor. They are really elegant. Yes, I aspire to be a glamper.

What do you tow with?

I have a 2022 Toyota 4Runner. After years of dealing with RV mechanical issues, I was ready to tow.

Do you attend rallies and what do you like the most about attending a rally?

Why did you decide to join the Tin Can Tourists?  (Note: I combined these questions).

I decided to Join Tin Can Tourists after visiting the 2021 Camp Dearborn event. Everyone was so friendly, ready to share a story or answer a question. It was like a family reunion.  This year’s Camp Dearborn will be my first rally. I look forward to making new friends and ogling all the vintage trailers. 

What are your camping plans for this year?

I am staying fairly close to my home base of Bay City. There are so many really lovely spots on Lake Huron. I have enjoyed Tawas State Park, Sleeper and Port Crescent. I boondocked on a farm that hosted a holistic fair. Of course, I am looking forward to Camp Dearborn in September.

  1. Love Tawas one of my favorites. Camped there many years ago! Is the lighthouse still accessible to climb?
