Trailer trash camp?

Post by capnjonny » Tue Sep 19, 2017 11:29 am

I have a customized 1965 Shasta compact trailer I brought to BM last year. I saw quite a few old trailers scattered around the city and wondered if there was a Trailer Trash camp or get together somewhere on Playa.

This year (my second) I broke my hip a month before the event and the Dr. wouldn't let me drive my stick shift truck so I I couldn't haul it in. Sleeping in a tent was not nearly as much fun or convenient, as having a home on wheels complete with bed, lounge (see "bed"), kitchen with stove, oven, and ice box, , not to mention an awning and outdoor patio.

So, if anyone has anything organized around old classic trailers or is thinking about doing something , I would like to know.

Uh... maybe? I'm not sure how much people are interested in making their camp about the sleeping accommodations they bring unless it's something like VW Bus camp or something.

There's a camp called the White Trash All-Stars, if that helps. They have a lifted 4x4 truck parked in their front yard...
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

I think you're describing most of BRC already!
I do like your trailer though. You should give it the full-on "glamper" treatment.

Does a clapped out 1978 Great Divide count as a classic?
