The Tin Can Tourists vintage trailer and motor coach club has chosen Camp Dearborn in Milford, Mich., for its annual 2015 Fall Gathering this weekend.

Hometownlife.com reported that the historic club, once the domain of travelers in the early 1920s who drove Model T Fords and tented along the sides of Florida’s two-lane roads, represents the very beginnings of the nation’s $13-billion dollar recreational vehicle industry.

Now in its 96th year, the club will feature an open house for the public 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

“Our tour of vintage campers is a reminder of a simpler time and place,” said Forrest Bone, the club’s national president. “Our members are eager to display their own personal campers and motor coaches, ranging in age from the 1920s to the 1970s. Each one is a beautiful example of America’s love affair with the emerging concept of leisure time, family recreation and freedom on the open road.”

“Whether it’s an Airstream, an Airfloat, an Ace or an Aristocrat, our members absolutely love showing off their original trailers”, said TCT member Alex Alexander from Florida. “During the tour, many of us display vintage luggage, camping items, tools, and appliances along with our campers. There are also lots of classic tow vehicles on display, often triggering nostalgic memories of past family holidays.”
