*About Craig Dorsey:
Craig Dorsey is not just any vintage trailer restorer; he is the go-to expert for anyone seeking an artful makeover of their classic trailers. Dorsey began orchestrating his own weekend rallies around California for like-minded hobbyists, explaining, “We all like old cars, we all like antiques, we all like vintage clothes, so we like to get together and boast about our finds and show off the work we’ve done.” His passion for vintage trailers and community gatherings led to his starring role in the 2002 US History Channel documentary Wheel Estate, which showcased America's love for travel trailering.

By 2004, Dorsey's Anaheim-based Vintage Vacations had restored 40 trailers, including high-end projects for movie stars and studios, such as a $200,000 interior reimagining of a famous airplane-inspired Silver Streak trailer. By 2007, he had completed 150 trailers and employed a team of six. Seeking a change from the bustling business, Dorsey and his wife moved to Nova Scotia to create a destination trailer park and workshop, where he continues to bring vintage trailers back to life.
