Vintage Trailer Show, Issaquah, WA

Today, we went to a Vintage Trailer show in Issaquah, WA to see Shasta, Airtream, Streamline, Holiday House and several other models that were impeccably restored and maintained by their owners.  Triple X Root Beer hosted the show, and while that was fabulous, they had a no pet policy on their patio, marginal food, and a waitress experience that left us laughing. Oh, and they only accept cash. So, go for the vintage car and trailer show, of which there are many throughout the year, but don’t stay for the food and service.

Below are pictures of many of the trailers we saw. The fun part was to see all the kitschy items collected for each themed trailer. From Tiki/Hawaiin decor to Camp Lodge to The Jetsons and The Flinstones, each trailer was fun to look at. As a bonus, most of these trailers were pulled by matching vintage cars.

Impeccable interiors and collectables add interest and fun to each trailer.

Lowell, Arizona


On the outskirts of Bisbee, Arizona is a little one-street town called Lowell.


There may be other streets, but this main street sets you right down in the middle of the 20th Century.



In front of the historic buildings are a number of vintage vehicles.

Signs and design are straight out of the 1950’s. It is interesting to note that Bisbee and Lowell sit close to the border of Mexico and the US, both towns a throwback to an entirely different era that was primarily thought of as a fairly benign time.
