To celebrate this event, Tin Can Tourists and the Vintage Airstream Club members are invited to camp at the museum and take part in the festivities.

The rally will be held on the grounds of the museum. Dry camping or electric only will be available. Potable water available and two dump stations are available on-site. Hoses for trailer washing and cleanup will be available. A large enclosed pavilion with banquet room will be available to use that has air conditioning, bathrooms and meeting facilities. We are working on providing shower facilities at nearby campgrounds, water park or schools.

Induction Ceremony Tickets are available for a discount through the rally registration form. We are bundling the tickets together and purchasing entire tables so all of the rally participants will be seated together. Dress code is business casual and vintage attire is encouraged for our rally participants. Have fun with it. The museum is excited to have a “different” group at ceremony than usual audience.

Camping on hard surfaces, so plan on that for your awning needs – no stakes allowed.

Trail Along to Pismo
Pismo Coast Village Resort
165 S. Doliver St. 
Pismo Beach, CA 93449
November 3 - 6, 2022

In 2007, Chuck and Toni Miltenberger and Bob and Cindy Ross started the "Trail Along To Pismo" vintage trailer rally in Pismo Beach, CA. With the help of friends and support of the vintage trailering community, the rally has been a popular sell-out destination for over a decade. Although these hobby icons have retired from the position of wagon masters, they have given their blessing to us to pick up where they left off. Initially held in May, we have opted to reserve the park in the fall to take advantage of moderate California coast weather at that time of year.

["Trail Along to Pismo" Vintage Trailer Rally is in no way associated with any other vintage trailer rally held at the Pismo Coast Village RV Resort. Reservation must be made with the host and cannot be made through the park. In order to participate, you are asked to have a trailer 1969 and and older. RVs, Airstreams, Vans, Buses, 1979 and older. Special interests travel/camping builds may be considered...]

Many, many activities for the participating trailerites.

Don't miss this one! Join us with your vintage trailer or save the date to visit on Saturday for Open House from 10 am to 2 pm (free to the public).
