Way back in early March 2020 we took a road trip from our hometown of Portland, Oregon to Hollister, California and Vintage Camper Trailer Magazine's boot camp. It's about a twelve or so hour drive according to google maps, but we make it into a two-day trip down the I-5 corridor with a few stops along the way.

The Illustrated Field Guide to Vintage Trailers and Vintage Camper Trailer Magazine have teamed up to create an ongoing series of articles about...you guessed it...vintage trailers. The pieces have been appearing in the magazine since the April/May 2019 issue.
