Celebrating the growing appeal of vintage trailer restoration, Golden Village Palms RV Resort in Hemet, California, hosted the First Annual Vintage Trailers and Camper’s Classic Show, April 29–May 3.
More than 100 vintage trailers and 90 classic cars were on display at the resort, according to Michael Carle, general manager of Golden Village Palms. The Good Sam Park allowed the general public to attend during the weekend and look inside the vintage campers, many of which dated back to the 1930s.
“People want the experience of going back in time a bit to enjoy a more simple life that seemed to be more relaxing—but still travel with the comforts of today’s technology,” explained Carle. “This year we’ve done just that, offering wine tours on a trolley bus, a pet parade and pet clinics, a farmer’s market, old-fashioned vintage fashion show and various concerts of entertainment.”
Golden Village Palms offers its thanks to all vintage trailer and classic car participants, the City of Hemet and Hemet Chamber of Commerce for participating in the event. The Second Annual Vintage Trailers and Campers’ Classic Show will be showcased April 28–30 2016 and themed “country western” to complement the 2016 Ramona Pageant held at the Ramona Bowl. Reservations have opened for next year and preferred sites are filling quickly.
