Located in Dayton, Oregon in the heart of the Willamette Wine Country, The Vintages Trailer Resort offers nostalgic RV enthusiasts the opportunity to experience camping in bygone era lodgings while still enjoying many of today’s amenities.
The Vintages was opened in 2014 with just five retro campers and over the last few years has grown to 31 blast-from-the-past dwellings for RVers to stay in. All the RVs were renovated by a company based in Bend, Oregon called FlyteCamp, who did their best to maintain the original interiors as much as possible. However, some modern amenities such as air condition, heat, flat-screen TVs, and high-speed internet were added to provide a vintage stay without totally losing touch with civilization.
Throughout the entire resort the creators took care to provide as much vintage-era accessories as possible. There are mini-propane barbecues, vintage-style patio furniture, a vintage country store, and two vintage bikes per trailer to keep the experience an authentic one.
This resort is the ideal vacation for wine lovers. It not only provides beautiful views of all the vineyards in the area but it is an easy bike ride or walk into town to take part in local taste testings. You can also enjoy a swim in the pool or a dip in the hot tub to further your relaxing stay.
