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.
