Reproduction Shasta Plate Available For PreOrder...

I contacted Steve from Vintage Trailer Supply a little while ago to see if he would be interested in reproducing the green factory nameplates that Shasta put on their trailers. The nameplates indicated which factory the trailer was assembled at and the address of that factory. I sent Steve my original name plate and he was able to get it in the reproduction process. I got to hand it to him. The plate artwork looks spot on...
The plates are not in stock yet. They are still being produced. Steve said they would be a few weeks out. However you can sign up to be notified when they are done. Go to the link below and click "Email Me When In Stock". You will receive the email when they are available. The current price is $12.99.

At this time VTS is just doing the Goshen, IN plant because that is the plate I sent him. If you have a plate from another factory and would like to have it reproduced. Get in contact with Steve and send him your plate.  He will most likely give you a reproduction plate for your troubles. He is interested in doing the other factory plates but needs a original example to get it accurate.

Follow the link to the nameplate page...

Jim-
That's the plan but I think he needs better examples than what I sent him. Mine were in real rough shape. Hopefully at some point they will be produced.

Pretty awesome. Luckily my plate is in great shape. I started a blog for my Shasta Compact if you're interested in reading it.
