Long before customizing your ride caught on with the kids, wise old drifters started tricking out their campers and RVs with little touches to make their homes-on-the-go a little more homey. This weekend, Renninger’s hosts a gathering of vintage RV and camper enthusiasts for a weekend of glamping – that’s glam camping, for those of you who don’t know. Stroll through a forest of midcentury modern mobile kitsch and take in a quick art class, or bring your own camper (or just, like, a tent) and spend the night. There’s a campfire for you to roast s’mores over while enjoying musical performances from Big Al & Uncle Jeffy and Sonny Ferguson (who was in a non-Alex Chilton version of the Box Tops for a couple of years). Plus, you can catch the 1953 Lucy and Desi flick, The Long, Long Trailer. Glamping awards are given out Sunday morning, so decorate your campsite with your favorite theme. May we suggest orange?

9 a.m. Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 15-16 | Renninger’s Antique Center, 20651 Highway 441, Mount Dora | 407-947-3961 | | free ($10-$20 fees for hookups if you bring a camper or RV)
