Staying in a vintage trailer on the sunny coast of Southern California may sound like a dream that’s too good to be true. But thanks to local camping group The Holidays, it’s now a very awesome reality.
Their four restored campers from the ’60s can be rented on a seaside bluff above the sandy beach in San Clemente. They’re just a short walk to the ocean, as well as the many surrounding local restaurants and attractions.
Each vintage camper sleeps four adults and a small child in an overhead bunk. None of them have their own bathroom, but there are facilities located nearby. Outside, the trailers each come with an awning for shade and seats to relax in.
These are their four options currently available:
Their Muir trailer, a refurbished red Shasta, is cozy and stylish. It comes with a full bed, cooking area with a three-burner stove, fridge, and a comfy gaucho couch. The kitchenette is fully stocked with pots and pans, as well as plates, cups, and utensils.
Likewise, their Drifter trailer is an old Shasta that’s been restored and repainted a charming blue. It comes with all of the same features and necessities, like paper towels, beach towels, coffee, and soap. The firepit is perfect for making s’mores, while the outdoor grill is a summer BBQ essential.
Their Roadrunner, a pale yellow Shasta with wings, couldn’t be any more quaint. The sleek interior’s been updated with beautiful wooden cabinets and lovely matching curtains. Like their other three trailers, it comes with a full bed, small cooking area, and outdoor amenities including a picnic table.
Last, but certainly not least, their Wrangler is spacious and sleek. The restored trailer features a full bed, dining area, cooking area with a sink, and more than enough wooden cabinets for storage.
During Peak Season (April 1 – October 31), the rentals are priced at $209 per night. Throughout the rest of the year, the cost drops to $189/night. The trailers are located on dry camping sites, so hook-ups are not available. They’re all solar-powered, but a generator is needed to power the A/C, microwave, and outlets (at an additional fee).
