Our Story

 

Vintage Base Camp is a family-owned business located in the state of Kentucky focusing on repair and restoration of Airstream trailers. Vintage Base Camp specializes in Airstreams from the 1940s’ through 1979. Greg Penner owner of Vintage Base Camp has over 10 years of repair and restoration experience on Airstreams. The Penner family is a multi-generational enjoyer of Airstreams; they purchased their first family Airstream in 1997. Now Greg, Julie, and Lucy, their six-year-old daughter, are continuing the family’s long-standing tradition of their love for Vintage Airstreams. Greg has a true craftsman and artistic background. He holds a Master’s degree in Sculpture from the University of Cincinnati. He applies his special talent with metal and woodworking to every Airstream. Greg’s approach when restoring and updating vintage Airstream trailers is the marriage of old aesthetics and modern methods, form following function. 

Many Thanks,

Greg, Julie, and Lucy
