Based in CA and having worked on vintage trailers since the 70's, Mobiltec posts video tutorials that guide reconstruction from start to finish. Straight forward, concise and a good place to begin before starting your first trailer.

Vintage Trailer Talk

A frequently updated forum where members range from beginners to people who've been restoring trailers for decades. Anyone flipping a camper should be heading here for tips & info.

'Jennies Garage'

Jacob Dale has graced the internet with his super helpful video tutorials following the entire renovation of a 1973 Shasta 1400 travel trailer. It guides his process step by step (with necessary humor) and has saved my sanity.

Vintage Trailer Supply

Located right in lovely Montpelier, Vermont, VTS specializes in products that compliment the vintage camper aesthetic  while providing modern convenience. They were my go-to for things such as exterior trim, access panels, vents and  some electrical/light fixtures.

Ocean Breeze RV Center

Peter Flanders of Ocean Breeze RV installed my entirely new electrical and propane systems. There aren't enough good words - Peter is someone who takes the time and really goes beyond to help you out, and was always willing to share his knowledge of trailers (new and old). When I first came in they even walked me through an older trailer they were working on with the same layout as mine. Genuinely good people with invaluable knowledge - highly recommended!
