Fun in Florida

On Saturday an open house was held whereby the public was invited to see the vintage and some not so vintage trailers. Ours is definitely not so vintage, but many people frequently ask us if Airstreams are still being manufactured. We certainly enjoy the retro look. But, the stars of the show were those who had lovingly restored trailers from the 40's through the 80's. This was also the day for the judging to determine the winners of the show for best restoration. There were so many beautifully restored trailers, I could not have easily picked one over another.

This Trailer won the first prize.
Here is last year's winning entry.

The motor home pictured above is owned by John and Janet Wright of Ontario, Canada. John runs John & Kori Wright General Repairs and Towing. He managed to replace the original engine with a GM Duramax this last year, as well as replacing the complete suspension with modern air cushioning shocks. Quite the beautiful restoration. We enjoyed the time we spent with this charming couple.

What year is this?
See more pictures of these beautiful restorations soon on our photo page. Please be patient because we are still on the road and we don't have reliable high speed internet for uploading. (check back frequently).

It was nice spending some time with the couple responsible for introducing us to the TCT. Rich and Dottie Walbridge. The are members of the Cape Cod Chapter of the WBCCI that we met on our first rally. They introduced us to Larry and Pat Lamontagne of Holland, MA. We thoroughly enjoyed their company.
