~ Welcome to our Little Vintage Camper Blog…

We bought our Camper/Trailer on Saturday, April 2, 2011

It’s been slow going…but now 4 (now 5) years later, I’m happy to say we are in FULL BLOWN REBUILD MODE!

Won’t you come along and see how we do it.

I hope more than anything…we get to camp soon!

Oh yes, and leave a comment, and let me know you visited…. I love to read them and will answer each one!

:: Adding Running Lights

After about 3 years... 
We're finally to point of working on the camper again. 

In 3 years, I've still not figured out what kind of camper we have.  I've found plenty of campers that resemble it, in size, shape, and possible lay out. (Like this 1965 Frolic @ Little Vintage Trailer)  Our camper didn't have any sort of lay out really, except for a 'deer lease' styled bed and plywood shelf ;  and one factory cabinet.  Other than that-- there are  no labels, tags, etc. to give any clues. 
Our little camper is in such a state-- that the bones are good; but the layout could go just about any way we want it. 

Being on a tight budget means we can't just run out and buy new. I do a lot of research on line-- looking at options for parts, watching videos of HOW TO's and price checking. 

So, while we were at the flea market this weekend I knew that six  l.e.d. lights for $10.00 was a good price.  We also visited ACE Hardware and found a good price- on putty tape.  This stuff is so important when installing windows or mounting these lights.  Anywhere there is a HOLE and your installing something on the outside...this putty tape needs to seal it so that water STAYS OUT of the camper. 

My husband is looking forward again to getting out camper ready for camping.  It is down the road a ways still-- but little things are getting done. Even if we are only doing a few small things each week-- it is moving in a forward direction. 

Putting  these lights on today... really made me smile! 
It's the little things! 

I've got a few more things to post about; and will be writing about any future projects too. Hopefully on a more regular basis. Please be sure and check back or subscribe via email on the right >>>>>> 
and see updates to the camper as they happen!  

Grace and Peace-
