Gibbs Smith | Vintage Camper Trailer Raillies
A celebration of vintage midcentury trailers and the people that love them.
This follow-up to the authors’ Vintage Camper Trailers focuses on trailer rallies, events where hundreds of vintage trailers aficionados come together to show off their trailers and share their love of the hobby. It features hundreds of new photos of trailerites and their trailers, along with the fun and festivities that occur at the rallies. Also included are a history of camper trailers, along with information on the major trailer hobby groups, such as Tin Can Tourists, the Wally Byam Airstream Club, and Sisters on the Fly, and tips on how to plan and organize your own rallies and events, based on the authors’ own first-hand experience.
