Best of Retro Travel Trailers

Posted on 14 July 2010

Modern motorhomes and caravans are cushy, convenient and offer all the comforts of home, so it's easy to forget that things weren't always this way. Not only were the shapes of early caravans different from their modern counterparts, but their interiors were nowhere near as luxurious. Still, to many there is something about a vintage model that appeals and with a little love and TLC these older versions of modern motorhomes--some so rare there are only three or four left in existence--can truly be transformed into something special. Read on to learn more about several different retro travel trailers and how they've been repurposed for modern use.
