Shady Dell - Vacation in a vintage Airstream!

(old post)

Cruising around the web looking at sites about vintage trailers, I found the coolest place in Bisbee, AZ to go for vacation. If I ever find myself in Bisbee, AZ, this is where I want to stay: Shady Dell.

If you’re a retro and/or trailer enthusiast, you’ll want to check this out! This mural welcomes you to the Shady Dell, an RV park that first opened in the 20’s.



From the Shady Dell website: “Nine lovely, fully restored vintage aluminum travel trailers await you at the Shady Dell in Bisbee, Arizona. Whether it is the 33 foot Royal Mansion built in 1951 and restored with leopard carpet, martini glasses, Diner-style breakfast booth and phonograph with a collection of 78rpm records, or the 1947 Tiki Bus Polynesian Palace, complete with hand-carved outrigger bar and your own Tiki God, the Shady Dell’s individual trailers will surely send you back to a time when freedom was just another word for jumping in your aluminum house on wheels, finding the Rat Pack on the radio and navigating the open road in search of your own slice of the American Dream.”

A view of some of the trailers in the park. Which one do you want to stay in? I’m looking at the Spartanette in the middle, myself.



Twin beds, just like Ricky and Lucy’s!!!
