Vintage travel trailers first appeared in North America in the early 1920’s and quickly rose to fame as more and more people were taking to the roads.  They allowed travellers to explore the great outdoors while maintaining the safety and luxury of a cozy home on wheels wherever their journeys took them.  By the 1950’s, travel trailers were the most recognizable shape on the road and their popularity still holds strong today.

MyVintageTravelTrailer.com is a celebration of the rich vintage travel trailer culture and the “tin-can tourists” who seek out and restore these vintage RV treasures. With proper care , travel trailers can survive harsh environments and provide many years of travel and exploration.

Most Popular Vintage Travel Trailers

There have been many manufacturers and models of vintage travel trailers, so selecting the camper that is right for you can seem like a daunting task. We are compiling a guide of the most popular vintage travel trailers to assist in comparison. Here are some of the most popular vintage travel trailer brands with model specifications from manufacturer listings and ads. Compare specifications on popular vintage travel trailer models.

Keep in mind that although the numbers listed in these guides are taken from original manufacturer specification sheets and advertisements, they are approximate and weights can vary greatly depending on many circumstances such as where the trailer was manufactured, its layout, equipment, modifications, and overall load. Be careful never to pull a trailer that is too heavy for your vehicle as it can cause damage to your vehicle and an unsafe situation on the road. Be sure to get your trailer weighed to know it’s exact weight.

Vintage Airstream Trailers

Vintage Airstream travel trailer

Airstream trailers can be identified by their rounded aluminum tops and bodies. The seemless rounded top offers better aerodynamics and protection from the rain, preventing water damage that affects many of the flat-top trailers.

In 1936, a lawyer and magazine operator named Wally Byum introduced the Airstream Clipper, the first of the silver, sausage-shaped trailers that went on be such a huge success.  Airstream’s success continues to this day, making it the oldest trailer manufacturer in the industry. Their site can be found here .

Vintage Shasta Trailers

Vintage Shasta travel trailer

One of the most popular lines of trailers is the Shasta. Easily recognized by its distinctive wings and “canned-ham” shape, the Shasta trailer was the best selling travel trailer brand from the 1950’s to the 1980’s.  They quickly became a favorite of campers all over the United States due to their low price and high quality. They remain very popular with vintage travel trailer restorers and collectors.  Shasta travel trailers were manufactured from 1941 until 2004, then again since 2010.

Vintage Aristocrat Trailers

Vintage Aristocrat travel trailer

Manufactured from 1956 to 1974, the Aristocrat travel trailers advertised garage storage with their Lo-Liner series.  Aristocrat vintage travel trailers were able to be equipped with optional metal wheels which lowered the overall height, allowing them to be stored in a garage.

Vintage Avion Trailers

Vintage Avion travel trailer

Avion travel trailers were first introduced in 1957 and are some of the highest quality trailers built.  The body is two complete aluminum riveted shells with treated fiberglass insulation between them.  Avion’s high standard for quality can also be found in its hardwood floors and dovetail cabinetry.

Pre-1963 Avion trailers have an aluminum skin that can be polished to a mirror finish. Shells made after 1963 have a satin finish and are more durable.

Vintage Aloha Trailers

Vintage Spartan Trailers

Vintage RV: The “Big K” Travel Trailer Mystery

This vintage trailer has me stumped—is it a kustom koach big “k” or ken-skill big “k".

A trailer with a 'K' logo on the front.

This vintage trailer has me stumped? Is it a Kustom Koach Big “K” or Ken-Skill Big “K"?

Welcome back to our popular vintage RV column—after taking a few weeks break, we're back with a vintage RV mystery of sorts. I snapped this shot in Nelson, B.C. some time ago, thinking it would easy to trace down what the heritage of this vintage trailer was—not the case?

However, I think I’ll go with the Kenskill. Evidently Ken-Skill or Kenskill company manufactured travel trailers from 1946 through the mid-1970’s.

According to the website, “Tin Can Tourist”: “The origin of this company was back in 1946 in Burbank, California with 'KenSkill Kamper'. Bill Kennedy made about 200 'teardrop' trailers by hand during the summers of 1946 and 1947. This 'modern teardrop trailer' design is the footprint for almost every modern 10 ft. teardrop manufactured today! These teardrop trailers were sold from 1946 to 1948 and then the company closed doors. Jim Brunskill was the 'money man' and went on to form a second company - 'Kenskill Trailers'. It is interesting to note that 'KenSkill' is a combination of the names of these two men. It is also interesting that while Jim Brunskill went on to be inducted into the RV Heritage Museum 'Hall of Fame', Bill Kennedy became another forgotten footnote in the vintage history books.

Originally located at 126 W. Alameda, Burbank, CA, Kenskill Corp moved to 11321 Goss Street, Sun Valley, Califorina. Kenskill, formed in 1955, had one of the larger “clubs” after Wally Byam's Airstream clubs. Kenskill Caravans had many members and they traveled to sites throughout the Western U.S. At one time there were over 200 members with 90% being Kenskill owners.

Jim Brunskill was founder and President of the company and Jerry Weiss was Executive VP. Mr. Weiss also owned the River Queen Resort in Bullhead City, AZ. In 1965, Kenskill was sold to Redman Industries. Brunskill & Weiss went on to form Executive Industries which made motorhomes.”

Can you help us solve the mystery of this vintage “Big K” trailer? Do you have a vintage trailer or motorhome story and/or photos you would like to share?

Vintage 1966 Kenskill Travel Trailer // RV Tour

May 31, 2019

I don’t remember 1966 but I have learned that a lot of things happened that year that completely affect all of the things I do remember and know today.

Here in Canada, the Canada Pension Plan was introduced and has been helping our seniors with some guaranteed income after retirement ever since. I only hope there is some left for us.

England won the World Cup and shared mini skirts with everyone and the US was watching Star Trek while they were in a space race with Russia.

The average American income was $6900/yr and a car to pull an RV cost $2650 with gas costing .39 cents/gal. People were full of angst, due to the Vietnam War and the every growing Race Riots and the idea of owning a Kenskill Travel Trailer that could take you away to isolation and peace and quiet while carrying all of the comforts of home with you must have really sounded like an awesome idea.

The Kenskill was a beaut! From the chrome aluminum siding and white walled tires to the trendy and now unique robin egg blue appliances, it was a home on wheels.

It slept 4 and had a full dry bath and kitchen. I could just imagine a family enjoying some much needed time away at the lake.

I am soooo thankful that there are folks out there that have taken it upon themselves to preserve this kind of history for the rest of us to enjoy. That is exactly what the crew and Jack Seismore’s Traveland RV Museum have done and my hat is off to them.

If you remember the Kenskill, maybe you had one or knew someone who did, I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Also don’t forget to join us here and SUBSCRIBE on youtube so we can share more with you.

It’s really nice to look back at the old trailers. How nicely they were constructed and beautiful they were.

' src=

I totally agree. Any of us that spent time in an RV waaaay back probably has some great memories. For me, that time as a kid in an RV started a love affair that I have never been able to shake. I love the new RVs because they make me dream of future possibilities and places I want to go and see but I love the old RVs because they take me back to memories of adventures and places I have seen and how much I loved those journeys.

Vintage Trailer Field Guide

Cheers to successful partnerships! Bill Kennedy and Jim Brunskill partnered up to build the Ken-Skill Kustom Kamper in 1946. Kennedy built the iconic teardrop trailers, and Brunskill put up the money. When the teardrops sold out, they parted ways: Kennedy went on to found Ken-Craft Products, Inc. and Brunskill formed the Kenskill Trailer Corporation.
