The Shady Dell in Bisbee, Arizona is an unusual hotel, offering a number of different travel trailers for rental to visitors to this remote, historic town. These trailers are restored vintage aluminum travel trailers, and feature vintage furnishings including televisions and phonographs. In recent years, they have added a 1947 Airporter bus that has been turned into a “Polynesian Palace,” complete with a hand-carved outrigger bar and “resident Tiki god.”

    Thanls for finding this: I’d recently heard of Shady Dells, and do hope to get out there some day. Gotta eventually do a road trip in my Rambler, after all!

    Ha!, I forgot about this place. I havent been fortunate enough to stay there but its getting hotter down here in Phoenix and a good road trip is always around the corner. Actually I cant remember if Bisbee is even cooler than Phoenix?
