Traveling is one of my favorite things to do in life. I love all of it. The planning, the packing, the driving, the exploring, it’s all so adventurous to me! That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to meet other travel enthusiasts. Plus, I got to peek around their campers and learn a bit more about their lives.
Are You A Happy Camper?
The Tucson Retro Camper Show gathers together many of the iconic campers and trailers from yesteryear and stages them on Broadway Ave for a fun show. You’ll pay $10 at the gate, with all proceeds going to charity, then you’ll be free to wander around peoples homes. Along the way, you’ll meet some fun people and see some great ideas for decorating small spaces.
The whole event is set up to look like an adorable camping world, with trees and campfires and even smores in the evening. It’s a two day event and it will take you about an hour to see everything so plan ahead! It’s some of the most fun you’ll have camping on Broadway. PRO TIP – Be sure to keep your eye out for a fully redone old shell airstream campers, the “Silver Bullet” variety, you’ll be happy you did!

This show runs a couple of days during Tucson Modernism week. Usually in the middle of October.
