Vintage camper trailers are a unique symbol of midcentury America that resonates with many people. This book introduces many of those people, along with the trailers they’ve lovingly maintained or restored. It includes hundreds of photographs of everything from fancy and comfortable trailers designed for glamping (glamorous camping), to trailers handed down through families across generations, and even entrepreneurs who have transformed their trailers into vending booths.
Paul Lacitinola enjoys everything about vintage camper trailers, including rescuing, restoring, and rallying. In 2011, he began publishing the first U.S.-based magazine for collectors, restorers, and admirers of American-made camper trailers, Vintage Camper Trailers, which now has thousands of subscribers in more than a dozen different countries. He lives in Elverta, California.
