New Member Interview with Joan Connor

Can you tell us about how you got into the vintage trailer hobby?
My husband and I have been rvers since we married six years ago. After visiting the vintage trailer display at the annual quilt show in Sistersville, Oregon, I “got the bug” to acquire a vintage trailer for a she-shed. Then recently I decided to buy a second vintage trailer and turn it into a moving My Little Free Library. We have both trailers here in Texas, taking the bookmobile to a wonderful local farmer’s market Saturday mornings to give away books.

What do you have now? What is your dream vintage trailer?
1956 Jewel, 1968 Timberline
My dream vintage trailer is to own a small Airstream.

What do you tow with?
We tow with a Ford 250 diesel, 1995 Ford 150 or the 1975 Chevy.

Do you attend rallies and what do you like the most about attending a rally?
We have attended one rally with the Jewel and hope to attend more with the bookmobile. It’s really entertaining to see the various trailers, especially those in original condition. It is also amazing to observe the reconstruction and creativity that owners accomplish.

Why did you decide to join the Tin Can Tourists? We would like to attend more rallies.

What are your camping plans for this year? Since we volunteer in an Idaho state park for the summer, our vintage rallying is limited.

Joan Connor and Dave Stearns
