View Full Version : Looking to borrow a vintage camping unit

09-16-2011, 08:33 AM
I have tried posting on several Tin Can Tourist sites, but so far no leads have come my way. America On Wheels Museum (https://www.americaonwheels.org/) is looking to borrow a 1930-1965 vintage small camper/trailer or an early VW Van camper for our travel display with some bicycles, an old camp stove, and a family loading luggage into a 1957 Chevy Station Wagon. We would want it for a minimum of 6 months to be a part of the museum.

If anyone knows of any such items that might be available to us, please let me know ASAP as I am supposed to report at our next exhibit committee meeting this Tuesday evening.

Thanks for any help.

PS: As always, I have more photos available from the museum at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/brooklands/collections/72157616887002701/

Sorry, I don't know of any campers you could use, but that display sounds really neat. I've wanted to get a VW "westy" for years, and have a display of 60-70s vintage camping gear to set up at a show. Of course it's all be useful as well.

I sent a response when I came home today...we took our 2 year old grandson camping with us for the first time this weekend. What a great weekend. I did not know how good he would be as a deer spotter.
