Vintage or used Airstream trailers are called “Airstream Campers” or “Airstream Trailers”, both terms are used.  They are also known as “Tin Can Trailers” and “Canned Hams”.   These vintage beauties were manufactured from the 1940 – 1970’s.  Airstream Campers stir a sense of nostalgia of carefree days gone by.  Vintage Trailers may not have slide outs and all the fancy amenities modern travel trailers can offer but they what they lack in convince they more than make up for in charm.

Travel Trailer Cover | Protect Your Travel Trailer

Posted in Travel Trailer Accessories by Tinny on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Should you buy a travel trailer cover for your RV or 5th wheel trailer?

Considering that your travel trailer or 5th wheel sites outside the majority of the time in the sun and weather you may want to consider purchasing a cover to protect your travel trailer from the elements.

If the expense isn’t an issue you can find a high quality breathable travel trailer cover from your local travel trailer dealer or supplier.

What should you look for in a travel trailer cover?

  • Breathable
  • UV protection from the suns damaging rays
  • High Quality – you don’t want the cover snagging when you are putting it on.
  • Snug Fitting – so the wind doesn’t blow the cover off but you want it loose enough so that it is easy to put on.
  • Zipper Door Entry – if you need access to the trailer you don’t want to have to remove the entire cover.

Without protection your emblems will dry and fade.  The caulking at the trailer seams will dry and crack.  Protect your investment with a travel trailer cover.

Another wonderful benefit of have a cover on your travel trailer is you won’t get an accumulation of dirt and grime on the trailer exterior when it’s not in use.  If you cover a clean trailer you will also uncover a clean trailer that’s ready to hit the road.

This trailer is amazing. The vintage travel trailer is in near perfect condition. I can’t believe rodents didn’t get in the trailer and do some damage. I can’t have my travel trailer sit a month without getting some mice in it and here this trailer is 30+ years and it is in the same condition as when the original owners left it. AMAZING!

 

Travel Trailer Camping – 3 Great Tips

Posted in Camping Tips by Tinny on Friday, June 16th, 2017

Here’s three great tips for traveling with a travel trailer.

  1. Keep a notebook full of your travels.  I recommend keeping the maps the campgrounds hand out and making note of the campsites numbers that are your favorite and that work best for your travel trailer.   Cross out the campsites that aren’t acceptable or where your trailer won’t fit.  This will help you select the best site next time you make a reservation.
  2. Get a good campground guide and use it.  There are campground guides available by state and regions.  These guides rate campgrounds and tell you what amenities are available.  This will save you from making a lot of phone calls to different campgrounds.
  3. Get an outdoor patio mat.  If you have kids, pets or even if it’s just the two of you, having an outdoor mat outside of your travel trailer will help stop sand, dirt, grass, pine needles, etc, from being tracked into your trailer.  Get a nice big mat so you won’t have to remind everyone to wipe their feet before coming in the trailer.
