As you may already know, my ultimate daydream is pulling out of the drive way with a little canned ham behind me and hitting the open road. I want to tour America and see her in all her glory.
I want to stay in campgrounds that have vintage campers and mobile homes you can rent nightly or weekly. The Dos Palmas was the first I found where you could rent a gorgeous vintage Spartan.
The newest one on my list is The starlight classic campground. It’s a vintage mobile home and camper hotel to choose from, it has 9 so far with more being added. They are all awesome!
Wanna stay in a New Moon for a few nights? Relive the movie “The Long, Long Trailer” and practice your best Lucille Ball impression? Well, I found just the place for you!
|A Look at the Starlite Classic Campground
At the Starlite Classic Campground near Royal Gorge in Colorado, you can rent a 1957 New Moon they lovingly call Tacy. Anyone know why they call it Tacy? Yep, that was Lucille Ball’s characters name in The Long, Long Trailer!
The New Moon is not the only awesome rental they have. The photo below shows all the current rentals available:
You can go to their website and read all about the rentals they have. They even give you the history of how they got each vintage mobile home.
What a great place to spend a few days and step back in time. I salute anyone that sees the importance of restoring and maintaining historical mobile homes and I can’t wait to meet the owners of the starlight classic campground and to just be able to say “I slept in a ’57 New Moon!”
