We had a great time at the Tin Can Tourist rally. So many vintage trailers in one place...I was like a kid in a candy store ;D
We met a lot of great people, saw some we knew from here and Facebook. They also had great food, music, mid-evil show, award show and just overall a great time. Oh and I won a door prize that was a foldable camping table with cup holders.
The open house was really neat. It was something to see all the different interiors. I took as many pictures as I could but I know I only made it through about 1/2 of the trailers.
I had a severe case of trailer envy going on with a 62 Astroflyte that was there. BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL Shasta! And of course to further torture me...it's for sale. It's nicer than mine in some ways. Mainly because the interior is the original birch and it has less dings on the exterior skin.
If anyone is looking for a Astroflyte, I can tell you that I walked around this baby, was inside it and it's in fantastic shape. You can tell that the owners are meticulous and have done a wonderful job keeping her beautiful. (here are a few pics). She's located in MI. Price: $6,000. Worth every penny IMO.
I'll have pictures up here in a few. They are uploading now. I'll post a reply when they are ready. In the meantime, check out the Astroflyte.

No, this model doesn't have a bathroom. We take a porta-potti in ours just in case but in all honesty we rarely, if ever use it. It's just easy enough to walk to the camp bathrooms. Plus a trailer with a bathroom doesn't have added appeal for me. I keep thinking of odors and having to dump it at the dump station...eww. Just something I'd rather not mess with.
I think if you were boondocking or somewhere you had to have a bathroom then the porta-potti would come in handy. But if I were you I wouldn't let a trailer having no bathroom stop you from buying one. As there is always the porta-potty option.

Looks like a great time. And great pics. I agree that $6K for a wonderfully restored shasta like that is a good deal. When I think about what I paid (too much) and the time I've spent so far....especially
1956 Shasta 1500
Can't wait to go campin'
