When 50 year old Dennis Grindle first built a model of a 1960’s Aristocrat travel trailer eight months ago, little did he know what a niche little enterprise he started for himself.
“I have always been a model car builder since being a teenager. I just wanted to build something different. I have done wooden boats and there was nothing really different on the market so I started building my campers.”
Dennis’ models are built with balsa and basswood and are generally in the 8″ X 5″ size range. You can have your own camper made as well…unless you have an Airstream. “I prefer to do replicas of peoples’ actual campers. I don’t do Airstreams. Not saying I can’t, but with the shape the effort is not worth the price.”
Dennis doesn’t have a website, but you can view more of his work on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/dennis.grindle. To inquire about having your own camper built, you can contact Dennis via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Cost of his models are $40 plus $10 shipping.
