Each year, over 300 vintage trailers and their proud owners will be participate in the Annual Pismo Vintage Trailer Rally, held the 3rd weekend in May at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort.
Considered the largest vintage trailer rally in the country, the highlight of the weekend is the open house and swap meet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m on Saturday. All the units will be decorated inside and out in vintage décor as they celebrate trailers built between 1930 and 1979.
“Resort guests and the public are welcome to join the fun and tour the units during the open house and there is no charge,” said spokesperson Cheryl Britton. “Anyone not a registered guest should park off the resort and walk into the event, as parking is not available on site.”
Guests can see restored units from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s with names like Airstream, Boles Aero, Shasta, Silver Streak, Vagabond, Westcraft, and some one of a kind. In addition many of the units are towed with vintage vehicles such as Hudson, Ford and Chevy Pick-ups, Willys wagons, and numerous Woody wagons.
Participants have planned activities such as a bowling tournament at Pismo Bowl, miniature golf tournament, kite flying, outdoor movie night, group meals, socials, and a “trailer trash” happy hour.
