I have had a long time love of old campers. It's cliched,but it was prob an Airstream that caught my eye as a kid.
Growing up we were a tent camper family. For many years we packed up a family car, and drove all over this great country, tenting it all he way. By the time I was 14 I had traveled thru, camped in, and seem the sites in 38 states (I've added some more as the years past since).
On to the present. Always enjoying the older campers I saw growing up, the desire to own one for myself has grown. Then the question....where to start? Being a person with less than copious amounts of money, and wanting to learn the aspect of restoration I know come to the decision process. I will one day own a full-on motorhome, but for now a trailer will be the order of the day.
Choices...OH the choices. SO many styles to choose from. Perusing the multitude of old/vintage/classic trailer/camper/rv sites I have narrowed my list down (though always seem to be adding to it LOL).
So far what has really caught my eye have been (years were just what I copied from various sources on to notepad):
1963 Aljo Sportsman Camper
1961 Shasta Astrodome
1968 Serro Scotty highlander
1952 Lighthouse Duplex
Probably latter on down the line:
There's a number of others I know I need to add to the list, but the past few days of page surfing has fried the brain a tad LOL. While there's a random few that seem to pop up for sale in my area, to get the trailer that's "JUST right" may involve some traveling. With my current financial position this project won't happen for awhile anyways, but want to get to know people, learn more, and go in much better prepared. I do have a grasp of many of the "basics"...like any project, MUCH more time/$/etc. will be spent than planned, many times you'll never get near what you stick into it back at sale, you do learn as you go, etc. etc. LOL
SO hit me up people....ideas, thoughts, campers similar to those listed that could be potentials, etc.
Thanks to any/all :)
