YAY! I'll be the one running around with a crazed look on my face Look forward to meeting the two of you...and all of the other AirForums people attending. Fond memories of this show as it's where I met some of my dearest AF friends in person four years ago.

Quick update: we expect to have 34-35 vintage trailers this year, including a just added '57 Airstream Custom. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to tour them all!

Dang it....the '57 Custom can't make it this year, top of the list for 2015 show! Still plenty of Airstreams for all of you to enjoy.

Hey all! I have bad news. Haley and I will not be attending this event because I have a bachelor party to go to now instead. So... If anyone is interested, I have a reservation at Happy Trailer RV Park for next Friday and Saturday. Is anyone interested?

Just a few days too late. I'm having a birthday party with a fellow Piscean on that Saturday. Since we couldn't get reservations through that weekend, I booked myself a party at home instead. Oh well.

I noticed that a lot of the tours are now sold out. Can we still go and walk around? And still be able to see something?

Wow! Was this a GREAT day or what? Perfect temps, an outstanding and wide variety of vintage rigs, and a stellar turnout of vintage trailer folks. Can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow!

We went to the show too. We enjoyed it, but honestly I was surprised to see only about 30 rigs. That's a buck a piece, which I thought was kinda steep. We also expected to see more canned hams, since there are so many in SoCal. It was our first time at this show. I hope next year there is more participation.

My for sure favorite was the 30 foot Holiday Homes. Of which there are only 200 made (Harry and David Fruit co.). It was REALLY retro and had that atomic age look. Inside was like a 50s living room. We also like the big 35 foot Spartan. Around 8600# and they had special high axles to raise the whole thing to about 20" of ground clearance to get it in their driveway.

In the resto category the guy from "MrCannedHam.com" in Riverside had the most spectacular restoration work on display. He had a gorgeous 1952 16 footer that was restored end to end and top to bottom for $16k.

The weather was great, but not as good as the day before when we went to the McCormack auto auction next door. 600 classic cars on the block. Another fabulous weekend in Paradise for us!

Hittenshiel....so great to meet the two of you and glad to hear you had a great time at the Mod Week Vintage Trailer Show. I was so thrilled with the diversity in vintage travel trailers as well as the Airstream Classic MOHO & Greyhound bus! Really loved that we increased the "small trailer" presence with an incredible SU Teardrop, some stunning Canned Hams & absolutely darling fiberglass egg trailers.....and was touched to present the first of its kind award to the Hanson Love Bug owners Holly & Alan. Next year should be even more inspiring!!!

Monah, you guys put on a great show and we loved the diversity also. We will come back for more inspiration next year. Even though we are partial to the Airstreams there was a lot of creativity among the rest. I promised I would post a few more pics so since I already posted the AS's I will show a few of the others. I missed a couple but as you can see the showing was fantastic.

Thanks weirdstuff. Maybe we'll have a little "air forums" happy hour so we can meet each other.

Yes!

By the way, I finally sent in my application for the WBCCI/San Diego chapter. It's time for us to get out and meet some other Airstream peeps!

Hittenstiehl/SteveSueMac,
That red Chevy is actually a 1955 Nomad (that's the only year that had factory radius rear wheel wells); but we "Nomaders" appreciate whenever anyone recognizes a Nomad...so, all is good.
The photos show what a great show this was! Thanks for posting them.
As we are now receiving another 3-4 inches of snow it's neat to see some sharp-
looking trailers basking in the warm sunshine.
