It is not hard to recruit new trailerites in to the vintage trailering hobby. It seems that at every event we attend, rally that we host, or presentation we give, we meet people that have questions about buying their first trailer or fixing the one they have. Trailers sell quickly off of our social media and website. We have recently upgraded our website’s “For Sale” page. You can now view trailers by region so you are only looking at trailers near where you are willing to buy from.
Many of the trailers we post for sale are also posted on our Facebook page, sent out on Twitter and some are even posted to Instagram. If you are looking for a trailer, be sure you are tapped in to our social media to hear about the deals first. If you see something you like, contact the seller directly. Posting your comments is great to share thoughts and compliments, but the seller may not be monitoring their multiple posts all of the time and you may not get a response and miss the deal.
We have also added a “Rentals” directory to the website. We are frequently contacted for photo shoots, trade shows, commercials, weddings etc. that want to rent a vintage trailer. Often we are not able to supply something because it is too far away or we do not have the type of trailer they need. We are creating a directory of trailers that people are willing to rent to those that need to rent them! Visit our website if you are interested in renting yours, or need to rent one for yourself!
Vintage trailers appeal to so many people you can see them showing up in TV commercials and a variety of magazine articles. Where someone may have once rented a vintage carriage or car for their wedding they may now want a vintage trailer that can be used as a bar or changing room or that adds ambiance to an outdoor affair. If you are at a trade show or open air market imagine the attention a vintage trailer will get! Companies with a need for a temporary office or showroom may want a vintage trailer to grab people’s attention.
You may even be willing to set yours up at a campground for someone to enjoy for a weekend. The possibilities are endless. While there are companies like Tinker Tin already doing this; they too are limited by how far they can travel. If you are in California and need to rent a trailer, contact Tinker Tin (See ad page 26.) If you are interested in buying or renting a trailer (or renting yours out) visit the Vintage Camper Trailers website.
