You no longer have to haul a retro trailer to the woods to enjoy the thrill of hanging out in one. You can rent one of 15 amazing vintage trailers straight out of a Lucy and Desi movie in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, halfway between Dundee and historic downtown McMinnville. Renovated to suit a variety of tastes, these trailers have their own little neighborhood inside the Willamette Wine Country RV park. Oh yeah, did we mention this is Oregon wine country too?
Whether you want to stay in a vintage 1947 Spartan Manor, which is 25 feet long and has an aviation pedigree, or a 1958 Oasis, which might remind you a lot of that old trailer sitting in your neighbor’s yard, the Vintages (yes, that’s the name of the park) has something for everyone.
In addition to not having to buy the trailer, fix it up and outfit it to roll, this resort also provides you with hotel quality linens, bath amenities, robes, a BBQ on the patio, classic cruiser bicycles to rent, private bathroom, dishes and silverware as well as iPhone docks and a flat screen TV. So yeah. Better than your own trailer in so many ways.
When checking out these restored trailers, take note that no detail has gone unnoticed. A company called Flyte Camp restored all of the old trailers for the park and, in so doing, has created a bucket list vacation for even the most hardcore camper.
