Vintage Trailer Show Rolls In for the
San Diego Modernism Weekend

Step into the past as you tour an assortment of beautifully restored travel trailers at the Vintage Trailer Show held during the San Diego Modernism Weekend. Featuring 7 to 9 vintage travel trailers from the 1930's to 1950's, this display of trailers provides a glimpse into the nomadic world of the vintage travel trailer buff or "trailerite." From Spartans to the widely recognized Airstreams, these vintage travel trailers remain popular examples of true Americana.

The careful restoration of these trailers redefines vintage comfort, retaining the charm, details, and characteristics of the trailers while providing a variety of the modern conveniences. Tour visitors will marvel at the craftsmanship required to restore these in a style that is true to the era while integrating modern conveniences that blend into the period's design.

These trailers will be on display in the Community Concourse Exhibition Hall throughout the entire San Diego Modernism Weekend, allowing guests plenty of opportunity to view their unique interiors. This display promises to evoke the spirit of adventure on the open road vintage style.

Coinciding with the weekend's Vintage Trailer Show, SOHO welcomes author and photographer Doug Keister who will be speaking about our continuing fascination with vintage travel trailers on Saturday, October 11, as part of the San Diego Modernism Weekend's lecture series. Mr. Keister, along with architect and columnist Arrol Gellner, has co-authored and photographed a newly released book about vintage travel trailer design and culture. At the conclusion of his lecture, Mr. Keister will be signing this new book Ready to Roll - A Celebration of the Classic American Travel Trailer.
