Quality, authenticity, and style brought to vintage campers

We are a team of fabrication, design, and small-space experts

When Airstream was busy transitioning operations from California to Ohio and antique automobiles were considered classics, one of those classics, a Model T, found its way into the hands of Steve Zinninger and kicked off a life-long passion for vintage craftsmanship.

During that time, Steve became the owner of a national commercial/industrial painting company that required extensive traveling. Despite the miles, a growing family quickly piqued a new interest — historic houses. Tastefully melding modern convenience with retro sensibilities became a driving force in his home restorations.

Houses. Automobiles. Traveling. Kinda makes sense that the allure of yesteryears’ campers soon found a new devotee. That passion has been passed on to Brandon, Steve’s son, and the president of Camper Reparadise. Growing quickly, this small business now employs ten people. With decades of combined  experience, impeccable attention to detail, and a love of quality workmanship, Camper Reparadises team is uniquely positioned to advise and serve clients considering vintage camper projects from full restorations to appealing updates.
