It's hard to tell from the photo, does anybody else have a vintage trailer besides you?

Most of the fibreglass trailers are 1970's so in the 30+ year old bracket and some are almost 40 years old. A couple are later Bigfoot trailers (very small) and are based on the earlier models. When we sold out 1978 Boler 17' it was listed for one day and went for $2,000 more than we paid for the Airstream. The early fibreglass trailers are very popular, particularly within the hotrod crowd, as they are relatively light compared to other SOB's of that vintage and hold up pretty well. We've now got one "almost convert" who is looking hard for a fifties (preferably a '54) Flying Cloud and will then blow their 17' Boler away. Once they come over to the shiny side I suspect others will follow quickly. For many the early Bambi's are very desireable but about as available as a $2,000 1957 Corvette.

Most of these folks are using 30's cars with a few of us using "new" cars of 50's vintage. We get a lot of ribbing from them. So, as early Bambi's, Caravel's and Flying Clouds and others are found they'll be snapped up and the flavor of the group will change. My '58 Silver Streak 17' never got out of our yard before our neighbor came over with a cheque. That's how quickly these things go. Everyone loves shiny in this group, it's the affordability factor that impacts us the most. Living in Canada there are far fewer Airstreams that come up for sale. And as for the shine on my trailer, a group effort - most of the folks in this group showed up one evening with polishers in hand at we got it to the state it's in now, I just need to take it the next several steps for that mirror finish.

Thats my best friend who dragged me into this whole vintage camper thing. Its a '53 royal Spartanette. It sat 30 years behind a church in GA, where it was used to house missonary workers. Its as prestine as you could find! I also have a 53 but not a Royal, just a Spartanette. Its terrifying watching him pull that thing!

Nice PJ's !!!

Those huge pics reminded me... the maximum size for posting on the forums is actually 1600 x 1600 pixels.
Sorry about the mis-info.

Sequoiacoast's pictures are XL!

Keep up the great work!

Lightbulb Get rich quick :)

Wow, those are beautiful! You just gave me the idea that we should offer selected photos for sale that are suitable for framing or making into post cards. Okay, I know where does the "we" enter into this? Perhaps the artists would consider donating the rights to selected photos and the forum would benefit from their sale?

I'd certainly hang that black and white photo on my wall or send it as a post card. Online post cards would be fun too

Let's see more everybody! please keep them coming,

Steve

As mentioned before by someone, I think last month, the pics of the month could go onto a calendar the next year for members to buy to support the forum.
