The Shady Dell

Bisbee, Arizona, USA

Go back to the 1950's at this trailer park with airstream vans, a bus and a pleasure boat for rent, in Bisbee. So much to explore!


7 lovely, fully restored vintage aluminum travel trailers, plus a 38 foot pleasure boat and a 1947 Titi Bus, await you at the Shady Dell in Bisbee, Arizona. Whether it is the 33 foot Royal Mansion built in 1951 and restored with leopard carpet, martini glasses, Diner-style breakfast booth and phonograph with a collection of 78rpm records, or the 1947 Tiki Bus Polynesian Palace, complete with hand-carved outrigger bar and your own Tiki God, the Shady Dell’s individual trailers will surely send you back to a time when freedom was just another word for jumping in your aluminum house on wheels, finding the Rat Pack on the radio and navigating the open road in search of your own slice of the American Dream.

Nestled perfectly among the aluminum trailers and within walking distance from each front door, is Dot’s Diner, an authentic diner built in the 1950s.

Bisbee is full of historic buildings, museums, art galleries, antique shops, hidden walkways and plenty of ghosts. Its close proximity to the Chiricahua National Forest, Cochise Stronghold, and the Ramsey Canyon Nature Conservancy provides numerous opportunities for bird watching, rock hunting, biking, hiking or just leisurely explorations of the wonders of southern Arizona’s high desert area.

The sleek collection of vintage travel trailers are all perfectly restored to combine mid-century Americana kitsch with the comforts of home in a way that only the 1950s were capable of. Each trailer, such as the 1949 Airstream, or the 1950 Spartan Manor, are available for overnight or weekly rental.

Prices from $85 a night. No pets. Guests must be of age 15 or older.
