Can you tell us about how you got into the vintage trailer hobby?
I became interested in the vintage trailers when I was told about the ladies camping group Sisters on the Fly. Many of them had vintage trailers, I just loved the idea, so I went to seek my own vintage trailer and it happened to be that a co-worker was selling hers because she was afraid of pull it on her own. Then I joined the SOTF and started to go to camping to there functions. Had a great time.
What type of trailers have you owned and what do you have now? What is your dream vintage trailer?
She’s a 1967 Scotsman and that’s the only one I have owned so far. I bought her in 2018, and I didn’t have to do much to fix her up because the lady that had it before me had done most of the work, she’s not perfect but she’s got character. However I did changed the décor from retro to western because (Maizy is my trailers name) had the shape and look like a old Stage coach to me on the outside.
I’m not sure if I have a dream vintage trailer as of yet.
What do you tow with?
I tow her with a 2016 Nissan Frontier Pro4X pickup. I was camping here at Mt. Rainier National Forest in Washington State.
Do you attend rallies and what do you like the most about attending a rally?
Yes, I would love to attend rallies here in the Pacific North West when they come in my neck of the woods. I would also like to attend other vintage trailer shows as well.
Why did you decide to join the Tin Can Tourists?
Another SOTF gal told me about the TCT so I joined the news letter first. It looked so much fun I decided to join in hopes to attend some rallies some day.
What are your camping plans for this year?
So far I’ve gone on only SOTF events and camping on my own in Oregon just to get out of town.
Thank you for letting me join, I’m looking forward to the future with TCT
