Serro Scotty Travel Trailers
"John Serro was on to something when he branded the tag line, ''Travel Right, Travel Light, The Scotty Way.'' In fact, he was way ahead of his time when he designed and built an affordable, easy to tow, totally self-contained travel trailer in his garage in 1956. By the 1990s the Serro Scotty brand had exploded into a full line of trailers including fifth wheels, 50-foot park models and eventually a line of motorhomes. But in 1997 the bright light of the Serro Scotty trailer company took a dark turn when its plant in Irwin, Pennsylvania, burned down, marking the end of the production line. Eventually, in 2007, Serro Scotty Worldwide was formed and a new version modeled after John Serro's original vision was back on the market and can be spotted alongside its older sibling in campgrounds around the country.
Renowned automotive writer Pat Foster celebrates the simple joy of hitting the highway in a vintage camper, trailer, RV, or van in this illustrated examination of their hardware and cultural histories.
The look, the feel, and the sheer style of vintage campers and trailers are impossible to duplicate in sterile modern units. It’s little wonder more and more of us, from all walks and ages, are ditching the increasingly hectic modern life and rediscovering the simple freedom of small, uncluttered spaces and the wide-open road.
In Vintage Campers, Trailers & Teardrops, Foster breaks down the subject by camper categories, illustrating his knowledgeable text with evocative modern photography of restored and original-condition campers, as well as period photos and advertising art. Sidebars examine topics like:
Along the way, Foster covers all of the most popular camper and van brands, such as Winnebago, Airstream, Shasta, Spartan, Scamp, Volkswagen, and more.
Whether lived on the road, your driveway, or your armchair—your minimalist adventure starts here.
