Meet new members Jodi & John Mount

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

We had a family member whose life situation changed. He had started gutting the camper to convert to a customized living space for himself. John was nearing retirement, so we bought the trailer.

What type of trailers have you owned and what do you have now?

This is our first trailer. It is a 1978 Airstream Argosy 27.

 What is your dream vintage trailer?

This trailer finished!

What do you tow with?

2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel  

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

We are very excited about attending our first rally in June and meeting others and seeing their trailers. . It”s about 12 miles from our house, so perfect first trip..

Why did you decide to join the Tin Can Tourists?

One, we were overwhelmed with figuring out where we could camp and needed input from experienced campers. Two, we’ve read a lot as we have been working on our trailer and learned there are many fun loving and responsible vintage campers out there with whom we want to connect. Tin Can Tourist looks like a perfect fit.

What are your camping plans for this year?

After June rally in Douglasville, Georgia, we will take our grandsons for a nearby state park or local campground trip. We will also be watching for more rallies that we can work into our schedule. Our goal is to find a warm setting to camp for a month sometime in December or January.


  1. Very nice!! We got to see a 1972 smaller Argocy this weekend at the TCT rally in Bull Shoals, AR. (only our 2nd rally to attend). The owners refurbished to suit their needs and it looked cool. Met lots of great people at the TCT rally! Enjoy

  2. Thanks, Amy. We refurbished to address safety issues, new axles, e.g., cosmetic issues, and accommodations for our lifestyle. Plus balancing my desire to keep as much original as possible and John’s desire to build everything! I really wanted to reuse the original made in Sweden refrigerator but lost that one. We can hardly wait to start attending rallies!
