RVFTA #26: Meet Mr. Trailerama

Meet Mr. Trailerama

On Episode #26 of RVFTA: Meet Mr. Trailerama our featured segment is an interview with Phil Noyes, the author of Trailer Travel and Trailerama. We reviewed this great coffee table book on Episode 20 of this podcast and enjoyed the book so much that we wanted to dig a little deeper into the history of the travel trailer. Vintage RVs are all the rage, and Phil Noyes knows pretty much everything there is to know about them. We learned a lot and we know you will, too.

Phil is also the producer of a PBS documentary called Mobile America, which you should definitely checkout after listening to this week’s podcast!

We couldn’t help but replay our movie review of the Long, Long Trailer from Episode 13 of RVFTA. We loved watching this movie and were surprised to realize that even though the campers look different these days, the RV culture hasn’t changed that much at all.

And our last segment is a piece of our own vintage travel trailer history. We are talking about the first trip we took in our own travel trailer to the Finger Lakes Region in New York State, where we stayed at Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort.

We had an amazing time swimming, hiking, kayaking, and exploring beautiful lakes and waterfalls in three state parks.

This region is often overlooked as an East Coast RV destination, but we think it is definitely worth a visit!

All of this…and another great giveaway on Episode #26 of RVFTA: Meet Mr. Trailerama!
