Dan and Mindy Zen of Morgan Hill, Calif. live in a community with an HOA and are not allowed to have an RV or boat in their driveway. After teardrop camping for 11 years, they sold their small trailer and decided they wanted a vintage standy trailer that could fit discretely inside their garage. They fell in love with the Serro Scotty design, but could not find one in their area – so they decided to build one from scratch.
Their new Serro Scotty has the same design as the 1962 original.
After many discussions with fellow trailer owners and builders, the couple began the build. Eight months later, Mindy finished up the last window before they took off for a trailer rally in Morro Bay, California. The new trailer gives a nod to the 1962 Serro Scotty, and Dan added on six inches to install a double – rather than a twin – bed. The trailer weighs between 1,200 and 1,500 pounds.
