Vintage Shasta Resources
Restoring a vintage Shasta trailer, or any vintage trailer for that matter, can be a very rewarding experience. There's nothing quite like taking your shiny "new" trailer out for its maiden voyage following months of blood, sweat and most likely tears. But, getting to that point can sometimes be a trying ordeal. It's not rocket science, but it goes a lot smoother when you can find the parts you need to get the job done right.
We're fortunate that many of the parts we need like birch plywood and PEX plumbing parts are available at the local lumber yard, home center or hardware store. But, for parts that have been out of production for years, you can spend countless hours scouring ebay searching for a part that looks almost as bad as the one you're replacing. Or, you can check out the great selection of reproduction parts available at Vintage Trailer Supply. I have been a Vintage Trailer Supply customer for years. In fact, I've even toured their facility. I am fortunate to live in New Hampshire, just a short road trip away from Vintage Trailer Supply's location in Montpelier, Vermont. Steve runs a top-notch business and his parts are exceptional. He goes to great lengths to have hard-to-find parts remanufactured to exacting standards, using original parts as models. Steve and his team know vintage trailers and they know which brands used which parts in which years.
The Vintage Trailer Supply website provides great product images and descriptions, along with customer reviews to give you real feedback from people who have already purchased the products. As I mentioned, I've been a customer for years and I've always been pleased with everything I've purchased. I'm sure you'll be pleased, too.

|Bargman Trail-Lite #4 Lens for License Light||In the 1950s, the license plate bracket on many vintage trailers included a light that shined down on the plate and had either a stamped metal cap or red glass lens.
