Vintage Trailers || Not Just For Camping / by Jaime Holm

At Tinker Tin Trailer Co. we've built a business around unique vintage Trailers! Nothing gives us a thrill like trailer picking' and bringing one of these pieces of history back to life!

A majority of the vintage camper trailers in our fleet have been restored back to their originally glory and continue to serve the purpose they were originally manufactured for: camping. That being said, a lot of the members of our fleet have also been repurposed for different kinds of adventures!

Here's a few of our favorite vintage trailers used for purposes outside of camping throughout history:

1940's Vintage Milk Vending Trailer

Name a better way to enjoy a glass of ice cold milk then on tap from a vintage vending trailer on the back of your pony?! We'll wait....

1940's Vintage Church Trailer

With this 1950's chapel on wheels you'll never have to choose between camping or missing Sunday morning church service again! Growing up Catholic we've spent a lot of time in churches. We've also spent a lot of time out camping in "God's Country" ... What could possibly get you closer to Jesus than combining the two like this 1950's camper church did?!

1930s Levis Rodeo Trailer

This one takes us back to the days when marketing was done right. Before "influencers", Instagram and Facebook was how we learned what was cool... All Levi's needed to do was create an amazing, traveling puppet show rodeo trailer and ALL the kids were begging their parents for a new pair of Levis!

1930s Western Union Telegraph Vintage Trailer

The original "mobile phone" concept.... As your viewing this blog from your iPhone, we hope you'll take a moment to appreciate the times when "mobile phones" weren't able to fit in your pocket, but had to be pulled by your car instead.

This one's a mobile show room on wheels for customers to come inside and view new products!

1930s Vintage Election Campaign Trailer

We don't know who won or lost this election, but it's safe to say they would have had our vote!
