Vintage Trailers at Trailerfest Rally 2016 at Tower Park in Lodi

I love love love vintage!  All things vintage.  When I look at these treasures from the past, I wonder who owned them and what they were doing.  It’s the closest thing to time travel.

I had the Trailerfest in my calendar for a year.  As the date came closer, it was sadly predicting a heck of a rain storm.   Sunny the whole week before and SUNNY the whole week after, but THAT weekend….RAIN.  What?  Boo.

I  tried to get a friend to come with me, hubby was working that day.  But, everyone was busy.  So, I went by myself.  I had to drive two hours to get there and I didn’t get there as early as I wanted.  I saw that they had 250 trailers entered in the show.  I wondered if I would even be able to see them all, let alone photograph each one.,

I made a decision to not even try to photograph all the trailers.  Maybe next time.  The hard thing about photographing a public show…is…the public.  They are all just as excited to see the beautiful trailers as I was, but it was hard to get any photos without people in them.  Which would be  fine if they would stop and smile, which…they don’t usually do.  lol

If hubby had been with me, I would have tried to make a video.  But, that was not possible by myself.  So, I stuck to photography.  The whole place was a photographer’s dream!

I walked as fast as I could so that I could see the whole show, and I did manage to do that.  Even though it was over when I got the the last of them.

So, I’m going to post my very favorites.  If you want to see all of my photos, I have an album at:

This one is one of my favorites.  I love the colors!  I love pretty much everything about it.  How adorable is this?
I also visited with the couple who were showing  this trailer and they were so friendly.  Pretty much everyone I talked to told me that they go camping in their trailers often.  How cool is that?

I think I would  have loved the 1950’s.  My favorite color seems to have been the rage!

This was probably the most spacious trailer, in my opinion.  I just love the 1960’s vibe.

This trailer was unusual.  I has this unique wrap around window.  Love it!
