Greetings! I'm a fifty-something baby boomer who grew up on the San Francisco Peninsula, several miles from the famous "Lanai - Polynesian Restaurant." I was taken there for dinner for the first time in the 1970's and still have vivid memories of how unique and cool that tiki themed restaurant was, particularly the beautiful bar background that moved...it's hard to explain...anyway, I have been into vintage travel trailers for the past 6 years and am currently restoring a 1968 Aristocrat Land Commander, with a tiki theme...I've named her "The Wicked Wahine" after some Hawaiian perfume my Mother brought back from Hawaii back in the late 1960's. This trailer actually has a small bar by the entryway, which I will stock with tiki bar items, so I can serve my good friends wicked drinks when they come to visit. She's a work in progress, but I wanted to join the ranks of others who love tiki and vintage travel trailers also. Here's a sampling of our work in progress:

Wanted to update the site with current photos of our "Wicked Wahine" vintage travel trailer. We finished her up last summer and she was taken on various outings around California and the Oregon Coast. Alot of fun pulling together decor for her!
