About Southern Vintage Trailer Friends

Tybee beach

The group was founded in 2010 to support the areas growing vintage trailer interest.  After many people had purchased and restored or updated vintage campers they realized there were no events within 8 hours of their location.  These individuals proceeded to create the dynamic diverse group that stands today.  The first event was held in Rutherfordton, NC and featured 15 Vintage Trailers from all eras.  Friendships were built that sunny October weekend that became the foundation of the group.

In 2012 as we enjoyed a fantastic potluck dinner the group requested a facebook page to support a more local communication base. The name Southern Vintage Trailer Friends was born with the name itself symbolizing the foundation of the group. While our love of Vintage Trailers may bring us together, the friendships we build along the way have sustained this group.

In past years, we hosted formal structured events (Rallys) a few times a year (generally April & September) and partner with local charities to raise money by opening the trailers to the public for a fee.  We are proud to say that in 2014 and 2015 our events raised over $18,000 for the charities that hosted us.   See the events tab for upcoming gatherings and rallys.

Our camping opportunities are offered from March through November to anyone interested in joining in.    Most events (Gatherings/Get togethers) will be booked directly with the campground and the only fees are those paid for camping sites.  More formal events (Rallys) are noted as such and are booked through the event coordinator by submitting a registration form with the specified fees included.

We hope that you will join us and make your own new memories with the group.

There is no membership required to camp with us. 

Gathering / Get-together is a casual camping experience.  There is typically a group potluck on Saturday evening but no other scheduled events.  These events are booked directly with the campground and no additional fees apply.
Rally’s are more formal events where there is a calendar of events, catering and a public open house.  These take place typically in April and September.  These events require a registration form and additional participation fees.
