~ 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!

Built a Rock Guard




Not much going on with the camper on the outside lately.  Most of the work has been inside. However, we did construct a rock guard for the front window, with recycled aluminum. It’s not fancy and it’s very light weight. So far, we haven’t had a need until today to open it up.  We propped it up today with a piece of PVC. 

We’re looking for new material for the bottom portion on the front.  Haven’t found any yet that is the right size.  Ours is pretty dinged-up there on the front.

The outside is yet to be painted. Though we did seal the roof over the summer and gave it a good scrubbingThat was a drastic improvement!

Sorry, I don’t have pictures of the actual build for this rock guard. I might be able to come up with some written instructions, but without photos—it might be kind of pointless. 

Anyway, I just wanted to show it.

We’ve just about gotten all the trim up inside and we have the carpet cut and laid down. I’ll try and get a post for the inside work soon.  So please check back!

Grace and Peace~
