Vintage Trailer Show rolls into Auburn

Fans of old-school trailers will show how the early nomads of America’s highways found comfort in a show in Auburn this weekend.

About 35 vintage trailers will set up for an overnight camp in the Juror’s parking lot at Auburn Folsom Road and Lincoln Way for Old Town Auburn’s Vintage Trailer Classic.

This free event is from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26; all trailers will be open for viewing.

The show will include more than a dozen Airstream trailers, the iconic “silver bullets” that first appeared in the 1930s. Other fully restored trailers include Shasta, Boles Aero, Silver Streak, Argosy, Streamline and Airfloat brands – about 35 trailers in all.

“So many people love these old rigs,” said organizer Gary Moffat. “Many … are more than 50 years old.”

The oldest trailer on display is a 1937 Gypsy Caravan Teardrop, a compact little unit with just enough room to sleep two adults, with a pop-up kitchen unit. A 2010 American Teardrop from American River Sales in Auburn will be set up to show the contrast.
