New from Alabama

Hello. We are Ellie & Will.

I recently purchased a vintage 1968 Concord Traveler camper. It's a 19' travel trailer.
I am retired and Ellie will be at the end of this year. We plan to do a lot of traveling and camping, in the vintage style, in the next couple of years. We're also new members of the "Tin Can Tourists".

I have restored vintage autos for many years, (Our tow vehicle is a 1969 Plymouth station wagon), but this is my first venture into a vintage camper.
Fortunately the Concord is in very nice original conditional. Bought from the original owner who took very good care of it. A good clean up, some cosmetic issues and some up grades into the 21 century and we'll be camping.

DW and myself enjoy seeing the vintage campers and MH brought back to life. A few we have seen look as though they just came off the production line. Yours looks pretty good to,start with. Post some pictures as you go along.
Good luck and have fun with your new toy.
