That’s So NoCo: Time-Warp Trailers

A love of restoration births an unexpected family business.

After Lindsey Gillette, her mom Anita Cordova, and their husbands restored their first camper, “Patches,” they were hooked. Next came  “El Mojito,” “Buttercup,” “La Jolla,” and “Rocky,”—all colorful trailers from the 1960s. Soon after, a family business was born.

Rescued Relics Rentals in LaPorte has renovated these gems for comfort and charm, making them perfect for couples or small families. Campers rent from $85 per night and are easily pulled by a small truck or SUV, but some towing experience is necessary and you’ll need to temporarily add the trailer to your insurance (the safety of Buttercup and friends depends on it).
