The largest vintage trailer rally in the country is set to take place May 16-19 at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in California, according to a press release.
“We’ll have over 300 vintage trailers along with their proud owners,” said Jay Jamison, general manager of the resort, which has hosted the annual Pismo Vintage Trailer Rally for the past 11 years.
The highlight of the weekend is the open house and swap meet, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. The event is open to the public.
The rally features beautifully restored travel trailers from the 1930s to the 1970s with famous names like Airstream, Boles Aero, Shasta, Silver Streak, Vagabond and Westcraft as well as unique special edition trailers. Many of the vintage trailer owners tow their units with beautiful vintage vehicles with matching color schemes.
“You’ll see Hudson, Ford and Chevy pickups as well as Willys Wagons and Woody Wagons,” Jamison said, adding, “All the units will be decorated inside and out in vintage décor as the owners celebrate trailers built between 1930 and 1979. Awards will be given based on people’s choice ballots and we encourage visitors to vote for their favorite units.”
