Vintage Reproduction Travel Decals

Since I did our 1991 Excella in Atomic Modern I have used vintage (repro.) travel decals on the back window.

My favorite is that of the Vatican. I'm sure people behind us may wonder how we got our Airstream to the Vatican (we did, the AS didn't)

Although the decals display many of the places we've been it is more fun having the artwork from another time.

I have been an avid collector of the originals for a number of years now. 2500+ in my collection...

It only goes on it that exact Airstream has gone to the place, or you have gone in more than one different trailer? I can't believe I just asked this question...i have over 50 yeRs of visiting our great country camping, but not with the same trailer. My mom collected the vintage sti kers but back then we just called them stickers . We each had a plain blue jacket and we would sew patches on there too! Great memories.

Vintage Repro. Decals

I'm no purist. I just like to create a fun environment that has a connection with the past but didn't necessarily experience it. It can be liked to creating a stage set.

Just blasting off for another adventure...

We collect magnets for National Parks. We try to pick the ones based on the vintage posters but they don't always exist (Joshua Tree, for instance). For us, the trailer has to go there, but not necessarily spend the night. We're trying for two National Parks a year, among all our other outings.

What sorts of things did you find in Atomic Modern? I am a fan of the era.

Atomic Modern/Mid Century Modern

I find lots of interesting things for our Airstream on Esty by simply typing "Atomic" into the search box:
