–The largest vintage trailer rally in the country is set to take place from May 20 at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort.
“We’ll have over 300 vintage trailers along with their proud owners,” said Jay Jamison, general manager of the resort, which has hosted the annual vintage trailer rally for the past nine years.
The highlight of the weekend is the open house and swap meet, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 20.
“You’ll see restored units from the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s with names like Airstream, Boles Aero, Shasta, Silver Streak, Vagabond, Westcraft, as well as some that are one of a kind,” Jamison said. “In addition, many of the units are towed with vintage vehicles such as Hudson, Ford and Chevy Pick-ups, Willys wagons and Woody wagons. All the units will be decorated inside and out in vintage décor as the owners celebrate trailers built between 1930 and 1979. Selected awards will be given based on people’s choice ballots and we encourage visitors to vote for their favorite units.”
Resort guests and the public are welcome to join the fun and tour the units during the open house at no charge. However, anyone who is not a registered guest should park outside the resort and walk into the event as parking is not available on-site.
Rally participants have planned social events, such as a “Trailer Trash” happy hour.
A local Boy Scout troop will park visitors’ cars with all proceeds benefitting their troop.
