A new way to travel...actually an old way.

For a while now, I’ve wanted a vintage trailer. I never really told anyone or looked into it because I just thought, “it’s a big item, probably something we can’t afford.” Apparently, I was wrong. I told Philip and he’s all about it! All he's been doing when he's home is researching and trying to fins us one.
They are very lightweight- to be towed behind any car [yep, even the accord]. They are PERFECT for when we would want to go away for a weekend. [we never actually go anywhere because we just can’t justify the amount of money it costs just to sleep somewhere]. We could take it camping! Don’t get me wrong, I like camping, and I like sleeping in tents. But honestly, I would prefer a trailer for those long trips- especially when I think about having little ones in the next couple years. Last but not least, they are sooooooooo cute! So many of them have vintage upholstery, stoves, and little refrigerators. They are just adorable! We’ve been looking at burros, scampers, casitas, and bolers [nick-named the egg for it’s shape]. The one’s we could afford aren’t decked out like these beauties, but are kind of like a blank canvas. These are still fun to look at for inspiration.


  1. Ah! These campers are amazing! I've always wanted one too..oh me oh my :) Can't wait to see what you get AND how you guys fix it up. Glove!

  2. I've always wanted one of those really small tear drop ones. Basically it's big enough to sleep in, and has a camp kitchen on the outside. Or if I had the dolla bills, I'd want an Airstream. There's one that sits on Anza that i want to hijack.
