What I discovered was a whole world of camping in a retro travel trailer that I knew nothing about. I’m currently living in a 25 ft. 1969 camper so I was intrigued.
Glamper stands for Glamorous Camper. It includes all styles of camping, but my interest was in the travel trailers, also called tin cans or canned ham. Glamping goes beyond restoration of an old camper to making it super chic. The camper can be anything from a tiny teardrop trailer to a super long model. Most of the people doing these renovations are women. Some have formed clubs and attend rallies. They post pictures of their campers on Pinterest and other web sites. I’ve become addicted to browsing through pictures of unbelievably cute campers.
@ Darwin, thank you. I think sometimes I'm still living in the old days....
We think alike, Kelli. Now I just need a way to get to the paint store...
I would start with a white primer, paint and just do pink accents on the bottom. Low in the middle to a little higher up on the ends with some sharp pointy "fins" painted right on each end.
Oh yeah! It definitely brings me back to the old days. Thanks for sharing.
Sounds good to me. Those airstream trailers are a real collector's item.
Maybe we can travel together! But of course the animals would come. Half the folks in this park have dogs and half of those have more than one! I can't wait to get my old tin can all painted up!
I've heard of these women who caravan around the country in their campers. There's safety in numbers. I've thought I would like doing that once I don't have the responsibility of my mother anymore. My dogs and cats would come with me of course.
