We grabbed the La Cabana out of storage and hustled down to Lodi. Trailerfest was well underway! All 130 sites had sold out. We’ve never seen so many cute vintage trailers! When we’ve camped on our own at regular campgrounds we rarely see even one pre-1969 trailer. (Occasionally, an Airstream) There were so many everywhere, we couldn’t wait for Open House the next day.
We set up quickly and then hurried our pumpkin pies over to the Old Timey Dessert Reception Gala. I’ve never tried to eat a paper plate mounding full of gooey, yummy deserts before, but we all managed to do our best. Here are some pictures of the day.
VERY excited about Trailerfest in two weeks! Got the baby out of storage after putting her away almost 9 months ago. The cover I bought held up OK, in the sense that I didn’t see any bad water damage from last winter, but at the same time there were some significant tears from the wind, which I repaired with super sticky red duct tape.
Did a bunch of little painting touch-ups inside and out just to get her in tip top shape, and packed all the camping gear. Looking for vinyl stick-on letters to put on the name plate on the back. Turns out that the original name plate featuring “La Cabana Trailer Co.” from 1954 uses Brush Script Std font, easily duplicated in Microsoft Word today. Since the font was first designed in 1942 and had it’s peak of popularity in the immediate post WWII era, makes sense it was chosen by the company in 1954. Interesting trivia from Wikipedia.
