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. We usually get pumped up on black coffee and maple bars for breakfast around ten in the morning. That's followed by some Slim Jim's, Skittles, and Mexican Cokes for lunch. By late afternoon we're pretty tapped out, so we usually pull into...

Like most vintage trailer enthusiasts Paul Lacitinola's interest began humbly, with the purchase of 1962 DeVille for family outings. From there he's evolved into a collector, magazine publisher, rally organizer and creator of Vintage Trailer Boot Camp, an intensive 4-day learning experience focused on vintage trailer restoration. We got on the phone with Paul to record our latest podcast and find out more about this one-of-kind annual event to be held the weekend of March 15-18, 2020 in Hollister, CA.  Open to experienced and novice restorers alike, the weekend will be packed with industry leaders and experts sharing their knowledge of topics like electrical & plumbing, framing, wood...

Vintage Trailer Supply held a grand opening of their new showroom in Santa Fe, New Mexico, September 13-15, 2019, and we were invited to give a presentation on The Illustrated Field Guide to Vintage Trailers. We were happy to accept since we'd now be considered leading experts in the industry (that's how Steve Hingtgen flatteringly pitched it to us.) A few weeks before the event, we recorded a podcast with Steve about the grand opening. You can take a listen to it here: We ended up splitting the field guide team into two for the weekend. Bob and his wife Deirdre...
