Auto Camping, 1936...MOVED

6 Additional Thoughts.

Hi Billy,

Thanks for the nice words. Yes, I know what you mean...hard to get people to turn loose of their old stuff. $800 sounds like a deal to me! I've actually spotted several around here, but none as old as yours.

:)I tripped over your little campers page. Very nice. I have a 1947 Spartan Travel Trailer. U can still find the old ones around. a long drive thru the mtns of nc or tenn the back roads less traveled and you'll find one. i've spotted several from 1930s thru 1970s. getting the owners to part with them takes patience. I paid $800. for mine. just needed polishing. Best Regards to all kindred spirits. Billy , Fall Branch, Tenn.

In the early 70s we lived in Vegas for a couple of years. My dad would take the family camping up in Utah and we always pitched a tent. I remember every detail of it. I am now on the look out for a vintage travel trailer for my family. I want one of the smaller ones, 13-15 ft, sleeps 4. Cant' wait....

I'm always on the look-out for a 1940s camper, parked behind an old house and all but forgotten. Someday, my camper will come...

"I'd love to own a vintage camper" you read my mind...

Love the auto lean-to tent. I could use one of those now. I have also fantasized about a camper--especially an Airstream.
