The vintage RVs anticipated to make an appearance at the show include a 1953 Lil Caesar 11-footer; a 1969 VW bus pulling a1971 Erica Puck 13-footer; 1947 Westcraft 24-footer; 1963 Aristocrat 13-footer; 1956 El Rey 24-footer; 1952 35-foot Royal Spartanette; and a 1952 30-foot Spartanette Tandem.
Some of the vintage RVs are purely for pleasure, while others have been repurposed for commercial use, such as Claremont, Calif., resident Terri Endrodi’s 1962 Shasta Compact 13-footer, which she uses for her “Itty Bitty Vintage Shop” business. She took four months to restore it.
The 10-day show, produced by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), will feature more than 1,200 RVs, 35 manufacturers, and 15 dealers, plus six celebrities, food and educational seminars, including the informative RV factory showcase.
