THE BEST KIND OF COLLECTORS / by Kendra Aronson

There is the old saying that … If something exists, somebody somewhere collects them! We see that statement played out pretty regularly, in the trailer world! It is so great to meet people, who have spent their life searching for, saving, and collecting different items…… and it is even cooler to see their collections in person and hear the stories that go along with each find! There is also a fine line between collecting and hoarding. Sometimes that line is blurred and sometimes it is very defined. When we met Phil and Beth on a road trip, that line was as clear as day! They are some of the most wonderful collectors we have met yet! Phil used to own a wrecking yard, and throughout the years saved a whole lot of cool shit! He has an incredible eye for rare and beautiful things, such as his 39′ Mullins trailer, as well as a home built canned ham. Phil’s collection consisted mainly of gas station and automotive memorabilia, as well as old cars and trailers! It was a great afternoon, and time well spent! You never know who your going to end up meeting on the road!
