Join us this week with our first show of 2018! We have the opportunity to speak with a man who thought so far outside the box when it came to building a RV. Keith Reever built a unique and very unusual travel trailer from a 1966 Beachcraft twin-prop airplane, that he acquired from an airplane boneyard. Keith walks us through his build process, as we show you a few photos of this project!
We cover topics far and wide within the RV industry, such as interviews with leading experts and manufacturers, as well as discussions of new products, tips, suggestions, and campground reviews. Our team of experts will bring you buying information on new and used RVs, including pop ups, conventional-pull travel trailers, 5th wheel trailers, toy haulers, class A, B & C motorhomes, gas vs. diesel, slide-in campers, and even vintage RVs and special events. We look forward to you sharing your RV experiences with us!
What in the world is Trailer Prom? Probably, the most fun you can ask for in one evening! Tinker Tin Trailer Co. brings you music from a swingin’ cowboy band and dancing to a wide variety of music, a vintage trailer park, food, the largest group of fun people anywhere, a way to express your crazy Trailer Prom attire, and the best-tasting craft beer that one could ask for! All of which all happens at BarrelHouse Brewery in Paso Robles, CA!
Team Flamingo recently journeyed to the Northern California town of Fairfax, which is home to Marin Museum of Bicycling. We attended the induction ceremony and dinner for the 4 new members into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame! Museum Curator, Joe Breeze, gave us some history and future plans for the museum. And, we had the opportunity to sit down with one of the inductees, Brent Foes of Foes Racing, as he explained his contributions to the sport of Mountain Biking! We were also joined by Stefan Utz, of cycleworks.ch, who made the trip from Switzerland to see Brent’s induction, as Stefan was the push behind this nomination!
Have you ever considered building your own teardrop trailer? If you have considered, contemplated, bought plans, or began the build, this episode is for you! We had the privilege of speaking with master woodworker, Chip Trebour, who built an outstanding specimen of teardrop trailer! Built of high quality wood, aluminum, and copper, and its design, make this little teardrop a show-stopper!
Team Flamingo is joined this week by Tony Barthel, Publisher of Curbside Car and Vintage Trailer Calendar! We turned to Tony to learn more of what folks are looking for when shopping for RVs, and what RVs have to offer, as he is also a RV sales consultant!
Join Team Flamingo this week as we bring you Part 3 of our coverage from Hot August Nights Vintage Trailer Revival!
