November 19, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

During the pandmeic, there's been a surge of interest in staying at vintage trailer and caravan resorts, giving a boost to a form of travel that originally boomed in the 1920s and '30s.

And as cabin fever spreads and appetites for safer vacations grow, there's been a surge of interest in staying at vintage trailer and caravan resorts, giving a boost to a form of travel that originally boomed in the 1920s and 30s.

"During this challenging time, trailers provide us with the freedom to experience other places while controlling our environment," says Anna Scribner from Flyte Camp, an Oregon-based vintage trailer company that restores old models and creates new units for trailer resorts and individual travelers.

Patrick Nechvatal, manager and co-owner of Hotel Luna Mystica vintage travel trailer resort in New Mexico, says that despite Covid-19, occupancy this fall has definitely surpassed the same period of 2019.

Located in Taos, Luna Mystica offers overnights in 22 restored trailers -- a blend of Airstreams, Vagabonds, Spartans, Twilights, Yellowstones and Avalons from the 1950s and early '60s.

One of their premier trailers is "Sundance," an Airstream Sovereign Land Yacht that exemplifies the self-contained nature of the travel trailers.

Farther out West in California, Kate Pierson of the music group the B-52s and her wife, Monica Coleman, channeled their fascination with vintage travel trailers into Kate's Lazy Desert, an Airstream resort near Joshua Tree National Park.

Vintage travel trailer resorts have sprouted all over the world.

Like the 1976 Airstream Argosy for $6,500 and a 1953 Spartan Royal Mansion for $9,900 recently offered on eBay. If you're not into resurrecting a vintage trailer yourself, several US.

Some of those 21st-century Neutrons have landed at The Vintages, a throwback travel trailer resort near Portland, Oregon, that mixes old and new units in a gorgeous Willamette Valley setting.

That blend of old-time romance and new-age comforts is also the concept at the hip new AutoCamp travel trailer resorts near Yosemite and the Russian River in California, with a third location on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, set to open next spring.
