Tin Can Tourists get-to-gather…..1.17.14

We pulled in here yesterday….moved about 6 times…trying to get sunshine in the camper since there were no electric hookups. They were stringing electric to as many campers as possible so we moved again. This time only partly in the sun…somehow we always manage to be by the tallest tree in the area…whether on land or sea.

1999 Scamp with a 1949 Hudson for a tow vehicle (ours)

This club is for vintage motorhomes and trailers…ours isn’t old enough to be considered “vintage” but the ‘49 Hudson is. The Scamp hasn’t changed much over the years so most wouldn’t even notice.

How about this one? 1989 16’ Casita …The brothers that made the Scamp parted company and one started making this one….they look alike on the outside…but this one sure makes ours look like a plain Jane and it’s amazing what that 3 extra feet can make. This one has a shower.

I think I was able to get a picture of each camper or motorhome at the gathering. If I missed one..I apologize.

Saturday they have “open house”. The public is welcome to come and see all the vintage campers and motorhomes…inside and out.

Maybe a visit here will inspire someone to “save” an old camper they’ve seen sitting in a field somewhere going to waste. It is amazing what room some of these small campers have, and each has been done to suit those who will be using it.

As usual you guys have the best posts and pictures. We always enjoy your nature photos and this post was so very cool as we have never seen many of the old model campers you documented with your camera and blog. Thanks for sharing.
