Hello and thanks for stopping by. My name is David Winick. Vintage Trailering began with my pursuit of an interest in vintage aluminum trailers. Since I was a kid, I have found something about them aesthetically appealing. They evoke a feeling from a different age in design when styling was moving into the atomic-age from the the end of WW2 and into the fifties and sixties. Plus they are just FUN!
My background and education is in design. I grew up in an age when things were built to last. For many years I designed and fabricated sets and props for film, photography and commercials. I've also extensive experience designing and fabricating architectural metalwork and fixtures for restaurants, nightclubs and commercial interiors. I've also art directed several feature films.
Seems that my background and knowledge make a pretty good fit from the response I've received. What do we do here? First and foremost we do work that we're proud of and strive for excellence. The focus is on design, materials, details and how it's executed. For whatever the purpose of your project we will work with you to satisfy your needs. We build trailers that are without peer and are highly sought after if one happens to become available. Pride and highly skilled workmanship is alive and well and continues to reside in the Unites States.

"Airstream debuted a special 75th anniversary edition, 19-foot trailer that is beyond cute. Oh my goodness, I want one!"
-Chuck Woodbury-Editor RV Travel.com
"Winick's design is an interesting combination of the richness of first-class railway cars combined with a distinct nautical flavor, thanks to the round porthole windows and vents. I find something incredibly alluring in the rich "metal and wood" look and this glistening camper evokes a powerful emotional response. The Anniversary model is based on Airstream's 19-foot Bambi trailer and sports a list price of just over $60,000. Winick tells me that he spent many years designing sets and props for film and photography and is intrigued by mid-century modern design. His passion for classicc design is obvious--he managed to successfully combine beautiful aluminum curves, rich wood veneers, upholstery that's reminiscent of the 1940's along with an ultra-modern flat screen television. The final result is almost enough to make me want to live in my driveway."

Monster House "Monster
...In January of 2005
I was offered an opporutnity to be a guest on "Monster House" ]Discovery
traveled to LA where I teamed up with four builders from around the US
and we went about creating "Monster Trailer" for an up coming episode. 85+
hours work in five days [Think sleep deprivation]. It was a remarkable experience
and I made some friends that I will have for the rest of my life. Nothing better
