A mention was made of this new trailer company in another thread. I thought I would post a couple of links for folks to peruse.

I predict that they will sell a TON of these!

Eeeek! I don't find those trailers appealing at all. My take is that it's a '57 Ford mated to a bathtub. It just doesn't do it for me.

That's why there are 1000 other trailers to choose from. A particular trailer won't appeal to everyone.

As hard as it is for me to fathom, some folks don't like our aluminum-skinned beauties.

I still think they'll do plenty of business.

Hi, this trailer actually looks more like a 59 Buick with 59 Cadillac tail lights. Cuter than a bug's ear, but not for me.

It's reminiscent of this 60's Geo fiberglass trailer. I think it should have the tongue on the other end though.

I love that people are making fun alternatives to modern trailers. I'm seeing more and more options, although they're typically small trailers.

I kind of like them. If they are priced right they will sell.

I like them.

You see the oldies out and about, periodically, being loved and used.

A good thing.

From Relic's site:

"Because we only produce a limited number of trailers per year spots fill up quickly. To hold a space on the production line we require a $1,500 deposit which includes a non-refundable design consultation fee of $500. Prices start at $16,000 for a fully functional standard trailer and the final price of your project will be determined during the consultation."

Custom Orders — Relic Custom Trailers | Build Your Dream Vintage Trailer

They'll sell a bunch of them.

We love seeing the vintage and retro travel trailers, both in photographs and in person. They evoke thoughts of a simpler gentler time. Every time I see one in a campground, I always take a picture.
