Vintage Camper Trailer News
An actual printed, bi-monthly publication (full color, bright white newsprint) that will spotlight all aspects of the vintage camper trailering hobby from rescuing them to restoring them, and all of the fun we all have at rallies! The publication will appeal to not only those that are in the hobby, but those that want to be, and those that just appreciate the trailers for their artistic beauty.
With so many aspects of midcentury America getting attention today; (cars, fashion, music, etc), there is a need for a printed publication geared primarily towards the vintage camper trailers collectors and restorers. Click here to subscribe. Or pick up a copy here.

I believe many people still enjoy seeing things in a printed piece as opposed to just staring at a computer. I have written columns for several years in a similar publication targeted at classic car enthusiasts. Their response to my vintage camper trailer articles has been very positive. Almost daily I receive calls from all over the United States with vintage camper questions and comments on my articles and social media sites.
The VCT News will be available by subscription, at select locations and at rallies. Listings for rallies will be free as our goal is to promote the hobby and the camaraderie that the rallies create. We also have free classified listings for subscribers.
The current format is 50lb offset book (bright white, heavier, newsprint) in full color. It is 12 (or more), 11”x17” pages and be folded to an 8.5”x11” tabloid size. This format will provide a lot of space for large, full color images and interesting articles on a bi-monthly basis.
