Hot August Nights Vintage Trailer Revival, Part 2

Join us this week as Team Flamingo brings you Part 2 of our series from Hot August Nights Vintage Trailer Revival in Reno, NV! We sat down with Jon Whipple, who had the initial vision of Vintage Trailer Revival, and why it was such an important step for HAN. We were pleased to see a woman with a vision, as Nova tells us how she began creating her dream car for HAN at age 13, and has a vintage trailer as well. Our friend Justin Scribner of Flyte Camp and the hit TV shows “Flippin’ RVs” and “Beachin’ RVs” shares his impressions and thoughts on this 1st-time event at HAN!
