One night in March , when I was browsing one of the vintage trailer blogs I love to read, a post with a link to a Craigslist ad caught my eye. The title said " Vintage Trailer Venture " and when I clicked through to the ad I was instantly attracted to these utterly unique vintage trailers. According to the story a high school welding teacher named Roy had designed a mid-century dream trailer in the early s and begun the manufacturing process before he abandoned the project and it went into storage for more than fifty years in a warehouse in Michigan. When the warehouse was sold earlier this year the new owner found everything virtually untouched on the second floor and decided to sell it. I had to wait until the next morning to make the call and when I talked to him the owner said that he would put me on a list as he had already gotten a lot of interest within the first 12 hours of listing the trailers. I paced for about an hour and decided to call him back and pretty much begged him to sell them to me unseen.

Travel trailers hit the road in large numbers beginning in the late s when paved roadways allowed tourists more options for travel and trailer innovations expanded the number of manufacturing companies. The earliest trailer options were do-it-yourself models made from mail-order designs. In the early s, less than 50 manufacturers operated in the United States and by the end of the decade, more than companies made and marketed trailers pulled by cars. These vintage American-manufactured trailers today attract collectors throughout the world.
