Yes, in our old age we bought something expensive. A camper.
We decided we were not getting any younger and our kids will leave us soon. *sniff* So…to make the good times last a little longer, we decided to purchase a camper. Besides, our neighbors have one and we have to keep up with them. They make us take care of their hamster, Pumpkin, while they are gone traveling in their RV for two months in Alaska; we are tired of it. We bought a camper, just to have an excuse to say no, we’ll be gone that weekend and can’t take care of Pumpkin. It’s all in how you look at it!
This is the camper we bought. 2006 Timberlodge Travel Trailer We don’t actually have position of it yet, but we will be next week.
The above photo is looking down from the loft. Yep, there is a loft. The Peas are so excited.
There is one super slide. The dinette and the sofa move out, which give the camper a lot more room to move around. You can see it to the left in the picture above.
This is the loft as it is right now. We’ll change the sheets and curtains and whatever to make it ours. The loft actually sleeps three, but only the two peas will be up there.
The above it the outside view. As you can see the back end rises up. That is where the loft is. Some of the stickers on the side are peeling off and I hope to remove them.
Since we are trying to keep up with the neighbors, you know they are not happy about that. This is what they suggesgted we purchase.
No one in this family thinks this is legal. Just saying. Anyhoo, we are thankful for our neighbor’s advice and we’ll take it with a grain of salt. We are convinced they are trying to keep us home so we’ll take care of Pumpkin. Ha! Not a chance! Ok, we may end up taking Pumpkin with us…
I have some ideas to make this “OUR” camper. You can check them out at Pinterest for all of my ideas. First thing to go, are the curtains! Thinking deep red, of course. Thankfully, the color scheme is tan and deep purple so deep green and deep red will work with that. WOOT!
I wanted these Corelle dishes, but I can only find them in a bright red or blue. I need dark green.
I’ll just have to keep looking. I’m also looking for a camper blog. One that is not a huge camper with all the conveniences home or a vintage model. If you come across a blog that talks about their travels in a haul behind trailer, let me know. In the mean time, I’ll keep you updated with what we are doing.
