Elkhart Indiana ... Home of the Vintage Trailer Museum

Years ago our family passed through Elkhart Indiana on our way home from a vacation out east.

We saw a wonderful brochure for the Vintage Trailer Museum as we toured the Jayco trailer factory. Unfortunately not very many people in Elkhart knew where it was. After much searching we found it.

It was in an old warehouse building, but I thought it was neat. They had many trailers set up to tour and a wonderful library of all old trailer brochures. They were raising money to move the museum near the interstate. We have not been back, so I've always wondered if they were able to get their new trailer museum built. If anyone knows ... please post pictures of comments. Thanks...

Mickey and Minie's Vintage Trailer

This is a framed puzzle that I'm blessed to own. It was a puzzle that was given to me by my mother in a box of "stuff" from my grandmother. It was put in our basement and forgot about until several years after I got into trailers.

One day as if I light bulb went off in my head ... I thought about the forgotten puzzle in the basement. I thought it was Micky Mouse.., but I didn't remember it was a trailer. You can image my great delight when I saw the image. I couldn't put the puzzle together fast enough to see if all the pieces were there.... AND they WERE!!!

My Heart Goes Pitter Patter for Pink Shastas!!!

This is a great Pink Shasta trailer that a proud owner posted many years ago. I think she' from Texas if I remember. It's this a great trailer!!! They did such a great job!!
This is a picture she took with her family. I think the story was they they had stopped at a rest area and this other pink trailer "Lakewood" pulled in beside theirs so they had to get a picture. I would love to meet this fun gal!!
