These decorated vintage campers will put you in the Christmas Spirit

    What’s more festive than a vintage camper all decorated for the holidays? We say nothing. Here are a few of our favorites…

    Some people deck the halls. Some people deck the trailer…. As lovers of all things vintage and travel-related, we thought we’d reach out to our friends at Tin Can Tourists and ask for some of their own trailers all decorated up for the holidays.

    Tin Can Tourists, a group dedicated to the vintage trailer hobby, didn’t let us down. We present to you 17 different vintage trailers sure to bring you cheer this Christmas season:

    Finally, we saved our favorite for last. This is the Wilson‘s 1955 Chevy Nomad 1963 Shasta Airflyte, and we think you’ll agree the Wilsons have done them both up right. From the exterior to the interior, this is sheer vintage Christmas camping bliss:





    A special thank you to the folks in Tin Can Tourists for helping assemble all these great pictures. If you’re into vintage campers and trailers, check them out. They frequently meet up around the country for good times and old camper fun.
