We spent one night here and enjoyed the experience of staying in these old trailers, ours was 1957, our friends 1959, they were kitted out with original memorabillea and look pretty genuine. Bisbee is a neat town to visit. We had 2 gripes about the trailer park, there was no toilet paper provided with one trailer and we did not... More

The Shady Dell is a charming alternative to “normal” lodging and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different! My husband and I were traveling through Arizona and decided to book a night in the 1957 El Ray camper. It was everything we expected from the website only cozier. The camper was period correct, clean, and comfortable. We... More

I fell in love with Bisbee and the Shady Dell. The care and detailed attention put into decorating the trailer (in my case, the yacht) were beyond my wildest expectations and I had a blast looking through the nautical themes games, books, cruise menus from the 1940s, and the amazing and entertaining collection of records (Rusty Warren was a blast!)....

A great experience! I stayed in #3, a 1951 Airstream that's been impeccably maintained. It was spotless and super-cute,and while trudging to the community bathroom wasn't so fun, I knew about it going in- if you'll be bothered by that, choose a trailer that includes a toilet/shower. Bisbee is a quirky place, so go full-on quirky and stay at the... More

We stayed just the one niught in a 1951 "Royal Mansion" trailer. Built by Spartan, this is 35 ft long, weighs nearly 3 tons, and cost $4,750 new. We watched Lucille Ball (and Desi) in "The long, long trailer" on a b&w TV; listened to to 50s music on a real old radio; brewed coffe in q 50 year old... More

First off, this is by no means an RV Park. It is a fun lodging which consists of vintage trailers (also a bus and a boat) which have been refurbished and outfitted with accessories from the appropriate years which run from the late 40's to the 50's. The trailers range in size and facilities. Some don't have bathrooms but there... More

Spent a two-day getaway in Bisbee, AZ and needed a spot to spend the night. Had seen reviews of The Shady Dell in the newspaper and online and decided to give it a try. What a fun experience. We reserved the "Mansion" as it had an indoor bathroom (many of the trailers do not have bathrooms, requiring a quick trip... More

We arrived Friday evening and the park was awaiting us with 50s music playing in the background of the property and the same ambient music in our trailer. The refrigerator, stove, TV and record player were authentic and usuable, as well as the full shower and toilet included in the layout of the Airfloat. Make sure to play the records... More
