~ 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!

"Back" inside: The Rear

Got Tools? 
Ye Old Shoppe Vac~ 

 Ye Old Saws-All~ 
(meaning: it saws all! wood,nails,  metal, nails, thick or thin it saws it. Did I mention NAILS?
See that home made bed- platform? 
Good ol' saws-all! 
Taking out the door. 

Door: Gone

Ye Old Man~ 
(just kidding... I hardly ever refer to him as that...but it fit Ye Old Theme!
Interior paneling; window; tail-light sections; cargo-door- 
Good ol' hubby! 
(aka: Honey) 
CS (curbside) corner and rear ply wood- all needs replacing. 

RS (roadside) corner and rear ply wood all needs replacing 
-- as well as the two spots that would flank the cargo door... 
this is where the tail-lights need to be-- we have to rebuild this wall FROM THE TOP OF THE WINDOW DOWN! 
(that's in another post) 
I guess it could be worse-- 
we don't have to rebuild the entire wall. 
We don't have as many studs to replace like the front wall. 
AND! the greatest part
The corner studs are still intact and looked almost new-- they were covered with original panel still. 
So again... YAY!

Thanks for Reading
Grace and Peace

  1. What an undertaking! But definitely a fun way to travel. Have you checked out the Junk Gypsy Airstream Trailer restoration. Definitely worth looking at.
