Vintage travel trailers that make you go Canned Ham CRAZY!

This is a blog about me and my wife’s crazy pursuit of, continued renovation and adventures in, a vintage “canned ham” camper trailer.

    Would you post or send me info. on which Gas Lamp is in your LaCabana? We attended Trailerfest 2014, sorry I didn’t get a chance to see your trailer. Gracie

      Thanks for asking Gracie. One of my disappointments with this renovation was that the previous owner threw away the original gas lamp (afraid of fire). I have never taken the time to find a replacement, which might not be easy, although I have seen them in other trailers.

      We’ll be at Trailerfest 2015 as well, hopefully see you then!

        I just got a Canned Ham Camper today to restore. I found your blog very interesting and helpul. My sons will be doing most the harder work and I will get to decorate. Excited! Oh and it does have the old gas lamp light still in it. Restoring it will be time consuming but in a good way.

          Teena, Awesome that you have some of the original parts! I love the authenticity that brings. Have a great time on your restoration and decoration project! Glad this blog could be of some help. We’ll be taking ours back to the Trailerfest in Lodi this fall and will post more then.

    weird question. is there a bathroom? if so, can you blog about that and it’s condition or renovations you’ve made.

      Hi Paula–Good question–there is NOT a bathroom. This is a very small trailer, about 11 feet from tail to the tip of the hitch. This model was never designed with room for a bathroom. There was a typical hardware store 5 gallon bucket with a special “toilet seat” lid that was in the closet when we bought it and my wife and I immediately said, “NOT!”

      We use the campground facilities. 🙂
