Next Vacation Destination: Trailer Resort
carly miller - April 2, 2019

There are fewer things more fun than a road trip. The open road, windows down, wind in your hair- it’s the experience of a lifetime. If a cross country road trip is also on your bucket list you surely have some top destinations in mind like the Grand Canyon and the largest ball of yarn in Cawker City, Kansas. And if you also like all things retro, funky and a little off-beat, then you are definitely going to want to check out this new type of resort!

 

A trailer park resort might not sound as glamorous as a 5-star hotel, but trust us, it’s better. Chic vintage trailer parks have everything you could possibly want and need, and you’ll want to book a stay at every single one of them.

 

If you are looking to connect with nature but without the tents and sleeping bags, you’ll want to check out AutoCamp in California. AutoCamp takes the iconic Airstream trailers and makes them modern. They take ‘glamping’ to the next level with pillowtop mattresses, flat-screen TVs, Malin+Goetz bath amenities, and spa bathrobes. Want to set up camp next to the beach? Or do you prefer to be surrounded by redwoods? No worries because AutoCamp has locations in Santa Barbara and along the Russian River in Northern California.

Heading to Oregon? Then you’ll want to check out The Vintages Trailer Resort which has more than 30 restored vintage trailers. They’ve got all the classics like the 1947 Spartan Manor to the 1965 Boles Aero. Each is stocked with luxurious towels, comfy beds, L’Occitane bath products, and gourmet coffee. Take a glass of wine out to your own private patio and enjoy the scenery of Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region.

 

Do you need to disconnect from technology? Take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern living and head to the Eastern Sierra region of California to Paradise Shores Camp. This camp is perfect for nature lovers who are just itching to explore nearby lakes and mountains. There are seven rental trailers you can book; each one includes a kitchen, pull-out sofa, and a queen-size bed. Take it easy next to the campfire and look up at the stars at this cell phone-free living to just get away from it all.

 

This location is perfect for nostalgia lovers. Take a trip back in time at the Shooting Star RV Resort in Utah. In what used to be a 1960s drive-in movie theater is now home to either refurbished Airstream trailers. Each trailer is uniquely decorated to resemble a dressing room of a movie star paying homage to the old ’60s drive-in theater. Shooting Star RV Resort is just short of an hour drive from gorgeous parks like the Bryce Canyon National Park and Kodachrome Basin State Park.
