MILFORD, Mich. -- This weekend at Camp Dearborn in Milford, rare and antique camping trailers will be on display along with interactive presentations. It will be a special chance to view and reconnect with Michigan history. Of particular significance will be the 1929 model of the first Covered Wagon Company trailer which was manufactured in Mt. Clemens.

This special presentation courtesy of the Detroit Historical Society archived at Fort Wayne in Detroit will be the first public appearance of this model since 1956. Developed by Arthur Sherman, by 1936 the Covered Wagon Company had become the largest producer of trailers in the United States.

Adam Lovell, Curator of Collections of the Detroit Historical Museum will be on hand Saturday from 11-4 to present an interpretation of this historic piece.

This will be the 15th annual North American Vintage Trailer and Motor Coach Show along with presentations by members of the ‘Tin Can Tourists’ a historical preservation society. Forrest Bone of the “Tin Can Tourists’ said, “We will have over 165 camping related vehicles from times past on display.”

Model-T chronicler and motor-camping historian, Dan Hershberger, will be one of the featured presenters. The ‘Tin Can Tourists’ showcase theme this year is “Made in Michigan”

The group has an annual winter show and rendezvous in Brooksville, Florida at the end of February.
