Tin Can Tourists’ Friendly Campground Program
This program allows select and member referred campgrounds to express their support of vintage trailers and motor coaches by joining TCT and listing their campground as a “Tin Can Tourists Friendly” facility.
By enrolling and becoming members, they are expressing their support of our stated goal “the promotion and preservation of vintage trailers and motor coaches.” They will do this by supporting TCT and by encouraging owners of vintage rigs to patronize their campgrounds. This support will buck the current trend noted in a recent Trailer Life magazine that discussed that a number of parks are not allowing coaches over 12 years old to camp at their facilities and that some campgrounds are available for Class “A” motorhomes, only. We became aware of such practices shortly after TCT was renewed in 1998, but restrictive camps are currently increasing at an alarming rate.
TCT is taking an active role in the identification of vintage friendly campgrounds because the original Tin Canners experienced this type of discrimination at municipal parks across the US during the late 1920’s through the 1930’s.
By joining TCT as a vintage friendly campground, your location and amenities will be accessible to all website visitors via a directory. A regular Tin Can Tale’s newsletter feature will spotlight a member campground.
