Vintage Camper

Vintage campers are the classic campers that were very popular around late 1930’s until probably the 60’s, now it is enjoying a recent rise in popularity, as people look back to simpler, less hectic times, seeking the high quality “machine age” design and craftsmanship of the early airstreams.

Most vintage campers nowadays are designed from the original craftsmanship of tin and airstream types, but some are restored from the original ones and are added a little extra innovation.

However for most vintage camper seekers and buyers, they would look for a vintage camper dating back from the 30’s, 40’s or 60’s, buy them and have them restored.

Why buy a vintage camper? Well, most people choose their classic looks and quality construction, they find it fun and exciting to restore, it uses real wood and not synthetics, they are most easy and inexpensive to maintain, they increase in value rather than decrease, they look great towed behind a classic car or truck, and they are a nice way to enjoy the great outdoors.
