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.

Abandoned Airstream #1

While out hiking in the hills above North Bend, WA last Saturday, we came across this abandoned Airstream Safari. I wish I knew the year of it, but I don’t. I’m thinking it’s from the eighties or early nineties. It’s in an incredible spot: flat, trees, big open plot of land with an incredible view of the valley and Mt. Si.

I wish I could find the owner of it and ask: What’s up? How can you abandon a beauty like her in a spot like this. Sad to think the trailer isn’t being enjoyed! But it did raise a lot of sinister questions between us in sort of a Twin Peaksish sort of way.

The Airstream has blackberry bushes growing all around it, and in a few years, will be covered with them. The area is being developed rapidly, however, so I think that someday soon it will be taken away.
