The TCT rally event at Camp Dearborn was another huge success! If you’ve never attended a rally, I really encourage you to go. We pulled in and set up on Thursday. That night everyone gathered under the giant tent area armed with their crock pot dishes to share. YUM! Then Friday we spent the day shopping at antique shops in Howell, MI. Friday night they had a great band play down at the Canteen. They also had the Friday night lights contest (the trailer with the best lights won). Saturday was the open house from 11am – 4pm that was open to the public. This is a lot of fun! It’s a time where you can tour all of the trailers and even go inside most of them. It usually takes the entire time to see them all since there is usually appx 160 vintage trailers in attendance. Saturday night they had a wonderful catered dinner at the giant tent and afterwards they had the awards, 50/50 raffle and door prizes. It was a great time and it was wonderful to see old friends and make new ones. I was so busy during the open house I didn’t get a chance to take a lot of interior photos of the trailers but I did snap a few of the exteriors of some to share with you all.
Of course first up is Buttercup.
Buttercup’s huge king size bed.
This blue beauty is for sale.
A gorgeous Shasta Astroflyte for sale. This reminds me of ours so much. I miss it. I forgot how roomy these are.
I loved the matching tow vehicle.
Very unique with the rear entry on this 1935 Bowlus.
I loved this one! See those upper windows? There are seats up there. Can you imagine being able to ride up there? Not sure it’s legal to do so anymore but I bet back in the day that was the best seat in the house!
This rig is so cool! It reminds me of a marshmellow on wheels….hee hee.
An adorable little truck camper combo. I just love this! If I had the room I swear I’d probably have a fleet of vintage trailers, campers, motor homes, etc., I’d likely end up on the show Hoarders but I wouldn’t care.
