Vintage Wanderlust!

Travel Retro Style!

I love vintage/retro trailers! I’ve been searching and waiting for the perfect retro trailer to come my way.  Retro trailers are the perfect accessory for the Rockabilly Kulture and lifestyle,  and there are so many I would love to have- I will probably end up with a collection, but my FAVORITE has to be the 1963 Shasta!  Shasta’s have the little retro wings on the back, which makes them extra appealing and extra retro.  The first time I saw an old vintage trailer with the retro paint job and the rounded back end- my eyes bugged out of my head and I gasped with excitement, it was love at first site!  Of coarse pink is my favorite, but red comes in close 2nd, and I like the pastel blues…. so like I said- I will probably end up with a large collection.  I personally prefer to have buy a retro trailer that needs to be restored on the inside because I have to have it furnished and decorated “my retro way”, and when I find that special one that is “meant to be” my FIRST I will post the pictures and share all the before and after pictures.  I can’t wait to have my little vintage, retro decorated trailer and join one of the vintage trailer groups (like “Sisters on the Fly”)  and go on group campouts and travel to the annual vintage trailer rally’s- so fun!  For those of you interested in buying on of these retro gems, some of the sites I go to (besides Craigslist) are:   tincantourists.com vintagetrailercrazy.com,  americanclassicsint.com tininntraveltrailers.com,  fletcherstrailersales.com airstreamclassifieds.com,  timelesstraveltrailers.com (does restorations also),  ynotcamperrestoration.com (does restorations also).  Here are a few links to groups of vintage trailer loving people with serious wanderlust, vintage trailer associations and traveling/camping events and info:   vintagetrailercamp.com  swvca.com (Southwest Vintage Camper Association),   trailerettes.com (women’s group, Northern California),   tincantourists.com  vintageairstreamclub.com, &   sistersonthefly.com.

About Rockabelle Bombshell

I am a single mom of a 13 yr old boy and 6 yr old girl. I love DIY projects of all types, and everything Rockabilly! I love the Icons of the 50's, as well as classic cars, pinups, retro appliances and decor, and victorian gothic furniture. I think of myself as a tattooed 1950's transplant... definitely born in the wrong era! I love thrifting and "junking"- I rarely see junk, I see things for their possibilities! I started this blog to document my DIY adventures as I attempt to upcycle and recreate my furniture and home decor, add a Rockabilly touch to as much clothing as I can, make life fun for my kids, and share my love of Rockabilly!
