An inspiring project found on the web comes at a perfect time. I’ve been thinking deeply about my friends at LeoLuna and their own renovation of their Argosy. This mean green makeover is great inspiration.
I subscribe to a fantastic quarterly from VintageTrailerCampers.com, and am always excited at its arrival date… which was yesterday!
While perusing trailer owner highlights and news of upcoming rallies, I spotted the ad pictured below. It got my mind back on track – since I’ve been on a cerebral hiatus from Vintage Shasta Camper dreams for the past months.
Whether you are a vintage camper owner, someone in the throes of a renovation and needing answers, or just a dreamer with a dream, this tag will lead you to all kinds of fun folks on a similar journey!
A couple of Sundays ago I kidnapped Heffe post California Burrito at Tacos Por Favor and we fought the road warriors up the PCH to Will Rogers State Beach to take a look at an little piece of gypsy heaven via 16321 Pacific Coast Hwy — a tiny fantasy that seeded itself into my mind the night before as I stumbled upon a little Trulia gem.
I purchased my first Shasta camper, a 1968 Shasta 1500, in 2008. I have been obsessed with the vintage camper lifestyle ever since.
Well, maybe it goes back a bit farther than that.
This is me c. 1983, having a bucket bath while helping my Dad wash our 1968 Shasta Airflyte.
The 1968 1500, aka Dad von Shasta. She lives in North Carolina with my folks.
The latest addition to my repertoire, the 1960 1600-SC, aka El Heffe von Shasta. She’s here in California with us!
Blame it on My Wild Heart!
I purchased my first Shasta camper in 2008. She is a 1968 Shasta 1500. I have been obsessed with the lifestyle of vintage campers ever since. Our most recent acquisition is a 1961 Shasta 16-SC, she's in a state of disrepair and we're on the pursuit of time and space to get her all fixed up! Join us on our journey!
