Talent and Creativity

I’ve discovered one thing since acquiring our 1975 Travco. There are a lot of talented, creative people restoring vintage trailers and RVs.

A plethora of how-to videos and photos exist online attesting to the many abilities brought to the table when restoring an RV or trailer. Some people focus on the mechanical side, rebuilding engines, welding chassis’, and upgrading wiring and lights. Others focus on the décor, matching fabrics, window treatments, paint schemes and patterns.

The best thing about being online is all these talented people available to answer my questions. They do this frequently because I have lots of them. I’ve gotten accurate, useful information on my Travco’s brake system, engine, alternative heating solutions, tires and decorating styles to name a few.

Human nature dictates we want to be part of a community. The vintage RV community is one of the most generous and welcoming groups I’ve been in contact with. Our Travco isn’t drivable yet, but we’ve been invited to RV shows, swap meets and other events. Several Travco owners have extended invitations to drop by if we are passing through. We hope to do this in the years to come.

I’ll leave you with a few photos showcasing some of the incredible things these restorers have created. I hope I can measure up to their ability and have a showpiece of our own in 2016.
