Life Outside the Trailer Park: Design + Production with Tinker Tin / by Jaime Holm

We often times get asked, What exactly is Tinker Tin? Seven years into this wild ride we are still trying to find the perfect answer, because we are always growing and evolving!

At our core we are a vintage trailer company. Rescuing vintage trailers, restoring them and then getting the campers back on the road via our vintage trailer rental business will always be the backbone of Tinker Tin! We are passionate about these little pieces of American History, it is who we are, and what we do, it’s the foundation of our business and its what will keep us going until the end.

In the last couple of years though, Tinker Tin has taken a few adventurous new turns! We have our event rental trailers, we’ve added our permanent campground, The Trailer Pond, we just announced the opening of our brand new downtown San Luis Obispo event venue The Penny and we’ve been all over the country with the production + design side of our business (we do everything from festival art installations, movie and commercial set design, backstage lounges, retail store design and builds, merchandising, retail re-design, experiential marketing campaigns and pop-ups, catalog shoots, expo builds, custom retail display rack design and builds and much more)!

Keep scrolling to see pictures from a few designs and builds from this year!
