That Conestoga is seriously cool! Love the windows. Mine is not that vintage.
2003 Chevy Astro(Snoochie Hauler)
1974 Starcraft Starmaster 6 (Snoochie House) DW, DD, DS, and pooch (two now) when we can.
Favorite place to camp, Grand Teton NP. If we could live there we would!
There are some things where being shorter (in height) can benefit you! I'm 6'4" and have plenty of headroom in my 2001 Jayco. But my first pup, 1995 Skamper, I couldn't really stand up straight in. I definitely couldn't lay down sideways (and fit. . .)
I like some of the older vintage-type campers for some really unique features like the hardside Apaches and that one up a few posts with the window on the bunkends (or whatever that is.) Then there was that one in another post where the kitchen galley completely slid out to the patio area for cooking! That was cool!
My height limits my comfort level, though. I'm sure there are plenty of people my height or taller who do fine in an older camper, but for me, I sleep long ways in the bunk end with my feet hanging off the bed (just like at home) and I can stand up straight and even stretch if I have to and not feel cramped. I just don't know how many campers would fit me this way.
Love the vintage pups, though!

Yeah, growing up my parents had an Apache Hardside, that was a great trailer, wish we had it still!!! My camper(once I finish the roof) will fit my friend of 6'8" so he can stand in it. Sleeping wise... Not sure what to say!
Not sure if our '82 Coleman is vintage, but its gota few years on it, anyway. Compared to ours, the Conestoga looks huge!!

We'll be camping this Good Friday weekend with the friends of ours who have a 1970-something Apache hardwall popup. I'll take some pictures of it this time. It will be our second outing with them. The first one was so busy I never got any pictures. I'm just so excited to be camping this weekend!!!!
Don't know if 1987 counts as vintage, but we got this Palomino hardside back in November. Going on our first real campout this weekend. I will finally be able to get a pic of my pup in a CG.
