Vintage Trailer Show 2012: Not vintage but definitely Timeless.

There are actually two trailers here on display that are not actually vintage in any way, shape or form. One of them is the prototype Sterling model Airstream brought with them and the other one is this custom built coach by Timeless Travel Trailers of Denver, Colorado.

This trailer Timeless brought to the show is one they built for a customer completely from an empty shell purchased from the Airstream factory.

Timeless Travel Trailers is known as one of the best customizers in the industry and they will work on new trailers like this one as well as a complete faithful reconstruction of a vintage model.

We have been thinking about some ways to make our trailer more suitable for a family of 5 so seeing them here was quite a happy coincidence.

One this custom trailer, it is clear that the owner is planning on doing some serious boondocking. A 5,000 watt diesel generator has been permanently mounted to the front where the battery tray and LP tanks use to reside. This baby is ready to travel.

The interior of the trailer is equally impressive.

The owner of this trailer wanted a large cooking area and a slide out dining table that doubles as a work space when in its stowed position.

If you like what you see, you can have one built exactly to your liking. That is, you have deep pockets and can stomach the jaw dropping price.

A trailer like this, starts at around $100,000. Yeah, that is 5 zeroes. That is definitely a jaw dropping price but if you consider the MSRP of a new similarly equipped Airstream from the factory stickers at $75,000, it suddenly doesn’t sound too outrageous to have a truly one-of-a-kind travel trailer design just for you.

I asked about a price range on what it might costs to put a couple of bunk beds in the Mish, they quoted me relatively bargain basement cost of 12,000 to 15,000 bucks. Ouch. I think the kids will be fine where they are for awhile….

over and out,
