Everything Vintage

I can spend hours on the internet looking at vintage trailer sites.  There are so many good ones out there, not to mention all that are available on Facebook.

Several months ago we welcomed our first Sister (Sisters On The Fly) from Australia.....Lisa Mora, Sister #2348.  Lisa is the editor and driving force behind a terrific magazine called Vintage Caravan Magazine.  I was so thrilled to find out that I could get back issues of VCM and subscribe to it here in the States.  International shipping isn't cheap, but it's a price I'm willing to pay to get this incredible magazine in my hands.  I pour over each issue, including the advertisements.....LOL!

Here's a quote from Lisa's website that tells you all about this fun publication...

"Vintage Caravan Magazine is the worlds first magazine solely dedicated to vintage, classic, retro-styled and custom caravans and those who love them. Vintage caravanners come from all walks of life and are drawn to vintage caravans for a variety of reasons. Some have nostalgic memories of childhood seaside holidays spent in caravan parks. Some choose a retro van because it looks good behind their prize classic car on its way to a car show campout.

Along with a sense of classic style, lovers of retro caravans take great delight in life’s many wonders – they enjoy adventure, travelling to new destinations, appreciating nature’s beauty and living a life less stressful. Vintage caravanners often also share a passion for classic cars or hot rods and will happily devote countless hours looking after their “toys”. They also have a very keen sense of aesthetic style and an eye for making small spaces look absolutely adorable.

So, Vintage Caravan Magazine is about all of these things; an eclectic collection of stories, pictures, ideas and input from sources who all share something so much more than a passion for caravanning."

Lisa and I have struck up a friendship because of that magazine and SOTF.  I've supplied her with lots of photos and put her in touch with some of my friends here who have the most divine old trailers.  Lisa is planning an all-women issue in the future and wants to include some of our Sister trailers here in the U.S.

So that's all I wanted to chat with you about today.  I haven't had any updates or photos from Tony for the last week or so about my Cup's progress.  While we're waiting for that, we'll just enjoy the stories and pictures from caravans on the other side of the world.....where they just happen be in full summer camping mode!

Check out Lisa's website for magazine information.....

  1. For some reason, the font here keeps changing to something other than what I designed ?? I've found that if I click on the blog a 2nd time, the correct font appears ?? Sharon and her Coffee Cup
