I’m happy to announce another new partner to The Small Trailer Enthuisast in 2016. Vintage Camping Gear is a relatively new online business specializing in vintage & classic trailer accessories.
Owners Jeff & Karen Matson of Kalamazoo, Michigan have been fans of vintage trailers, and have recently purchased a 19′ Shasta Airflyte Reissue earlier in 2016. Karen is an artist and painting and graphic design instructor, while owning Matson Art & Design. Jeff owns Creative Group, a web and graphic design firm as well as Matson Woodworking. Jeff & Karen use their experience with their businesses to create the products on Vintage Camping Gear. Some of those products include trailer shaped cutting boards & coasters, hot pads & oven mitts, drinkware, and more.
Vintage Camping Gear will also do customized work as well. You can drop them an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas and chances are they can get it done. If you’d like to find out more about Vintage Camping Gear, click on this ad on the right side of our website…

Thanks again to Jeff & Karen for supporting our site, and by all means, return the favor and give them your support!
One of the readers of The Small Trailer Enthusiast, Dustin Smith, has started an online forum geared toward owners of the 2014-2015 Shasta Airflyte reissues. Airflyte Hacks was formed to be an online gathering place for owners to share experiences, modifications, improvements and hacks.
Per the Airflyte Hacks website, “The goal of this website is to learn from each other, and build an archive of information that will last as long as our trailers do. This is not a social club. We will not be organizing outings. There are lots of other great trailer groups out there (including several just for the re-issues) that provide those kind of social forums wonderfully, and we are not trying to replace them.”
I find these types of internet resources much more favorable than social media pages such as Facebook. It gives members the opportunity to search archives and previous threads that pertain to information they’re looking for in an easier to find manner.
