VIDEO: Raw & Juicy

Posted In: Uncategorized, Video

Airstream has been making travel trailers since 1936. You might think that the scrap yards are full of worn out old trailers. But actually, it’s said that more than 60 percent of ALL Airstreams ever built are still in service today.

Many vintage rigs are being used for camping. For some people, restoring a vintage RV is a labor of love.

For other people, vintage RV restoration is a business. There’s an entire industry of independent shops that do nothing other than restore vintage trailers. If you go this route you can have the best of both worlds, a vintage unit with modern amenities.

Some vintage rigs are being used for creative means other than camping, such as this 1966 Safari Land Yacht model we found in Seaside, Florida.

There’s been a lot of talk about the environmental impact of RVs and the RV lifestyle. I won’t wade into the politics because that would achieve little other than annoying us all. (And there’s nothing worse than annoying yourself!)

But any way you look at it, restoring vintage RVs is a form of recycling we all can admire. It’s just fun to see these classic units still on the road.
