Classic Shasta Travel Trailer is Back With Modern RV Convenience

My earliest exposure to RV travel was back in the 1950s when I was a kid. My Uncle and Aunt and their three boys brought their Shasta travel trailer (I still remember those wings vividly) to town when visiting family. Sometimes it was for the holidays and sometimes they were just passing through while on vacation.

I was always fascinated, and maybe a little envious too, as my cousin told of all the places they had gone in their little trailer.

Later, in the 1960s, that same Shasta trailer was the spare bedroom for the older boys when our family went to visit them.

It's no wonder when I see those little 'canned ham' trailers, especially the Shastas, I can't help feel nostalgic. But I'm not alone in my nostalgia for these classic trailers... just visit the TinCanTourists.com website. Members of the site are dedicated to restoring and using classic travel trailers.

But, I don't have the skill, time and/or money to restore one and, besides, I like the moden Convenience on my RV.

Now, Coachmen RV Group has revived its Shasta™ brand with a new lightweight travel trailer. While the trailer resembles the classic Shasta’s of the late '50s and early '60s, it has successfully married modern technology with tradition.
