Long before customizing your ride caught on with the kids, wise old drifters started tricking out their campers and RVs with little touches to make their homes-on-the-go a little more homey. This weekend, Renninger’s hosts a gathering of vintage RV and camper enthusiasts for a weekend of glamping – that’s glam camping, for those of you who don’t know
. Stroll through a forest of midcentury modern mobile kitsch and take in a quick art class, or bring your own camper (or just, like, a tent) and spend the night. There’s a campfire for you to roast s’mores over while enjoying musical performances from Big Al & Uncle Jeffy and Sonny Ferguson (who was in a non-Alex Chilton version of the Box Tops for a couple of years). Plus, you can catch the 1953 Lucy and Desi flick, The Long, Long Trailer
. Glamping awards are given out Sunday morning, so decorate your campsite with your favorite theme. May we suggest orange?
