Look! There she is!!

I found my little trailer on Craig's List.  Lucky for me she was in Flagstaff where my favorite father in law lives.  I sent him over to look at it and report back to me about the condition she was in.  He said "it's clean and so cute."  I said "I'll take it!!!"  The very next day it was parked in front of his house.  Jeff and I drove up on Saturday night and slept in the thing.  It was adventure sleeping at it's best.
We took one step inside and were thrilled.  She is very cute indeed.  Kim and Dee (ffil and wife) put some fresh flowers on the table along with some strawberries and chocolates.  The table comes down and the cushions move together to make the bed, which was comfy as can be.
Here we are, myself, Jeff and Dee just shootin the breeze.  You can't see it but there is a little kitchen on the other side end of the trailer.
I'm a real baby when it comes to sleeping.  Everything needs to be just right for me to stay asleep.  It was kind of strange sleeping out on the not so busy street but when I finally fell asleep it was deep.
In the morning we were  treated to a beautiful breakfast of home made waffles, breakfast burritos and fresh fruit with fresh whipped cream. Oh! And mimosas!! Can't forget those.

My ffil is a magpie to put it mildly.  I call him the god of small things.  Little things are everywhere.
And when they break he's there to fix them.  I just want to say thanks to Kim and Dee for supporting me and my whim of a purchase.  The biggest thanks is saved for my husband, Jeff, who saved us from the vultures all the way home.  Our Suburban decided to overheat not far out of the cool pines of Flagstaff.  I'll save that story for another time.  It's a good one.


  1. She is so cute! What will you name her? Now you need to headline her in your blog banner. ox

  2. She's Adorable allready...You're gonna love having a nice Large table like that...It is worth making the bed every morning...believe me...I have a similar set-up in my little Shasta. Sometimes I get jealous of some of the gals not haveing to make up the bed, (it's usually all set up in the back and kitchen on the side with a table set up in front, but, believe me, when It comes to sleeping in these "canned hams", it is really nice to have a bed the size of a Queen for the hubby and yourself.:D
    Look forward to seeing the Kitchen, and all the things you have in store for your your sweet little trailer!

  3. Would you mind if I introduce 'her' on Nora Pearl? And if so, can you let me know what her name is? I want to introduce some of the newest Glamping Buddies.

  4. Hi There, I found your sweet blog through Kerrie @ Nora Pearl. Your trailer is just the sweetest thing. I can't wait to see more and how you have fixed her up. I agree with Kerrie, a name is definitely in order. Looking forward to knowing you .
