Vintage Trailer Favorites

We’ve had a great time on our tour of the vintage trailers.  It's been fun having you along.  Now I want to show you my favorites.  Here are two that called me back time after time. It was almost as if I couldn’t see enough – I had to go back.  I saw this trailer almost as soon as I arrived and I knew right away that I wanted to see more.  Kathy's TrailerLook a little closer.  We need to see all the wonderful things she has around the trailer.  We haven’t even gone inside yet and her style is obvious.  There's a ‘banner’ of vintage aprons –vintage coffeepots and cookware – things found in a home.Kathy's Trailer - Outside Let’s get a little closer.  Then we'll go inside.  Oh, wait – look at this gorgeous vintage robe that's hanging on the door.Kathy's RobeThe inside is as intriguing as the outside.  There’s a lot to see.  The table has been set – she must be waiting for us.Kathy's TableHer kitchen is equipped with just about anything you might need.Kathy's KitchenEverything inside this trailer fascinates me.  And a lot of it brings back memories of my childhood – from the curtains to the vintage luggage overhead to the Raggedy Ann that sits on her bed.Kathy's BedWasn’t that a fun place to visit?  There’s one more nearby that I want you to see.  It is different and it shows the style of the owner in a way we haven’t seen yet.  Heads turned when she arrived. She’s a beauty!  You have to see it – you’ll be glad you did!  Disoriented ExpressMeet the ‘Disoriented Express’!Disoriented Express DecalShe is exquisite!  Her owner told me she wanted to make her trailer reflect the beauty of the Orient Express so she studied all the details of the original luxury train.  Then she adapted them to fit her trailer.  She didn’t miss a thing!

She even added details to the tongue (front hitch area) of the trailer!  Here's a train light that really works. . .Disoriented Express - Train LightA brass railroad piece that replaces a standard tongue jack handle. . .Disoriented Express - Tongue HandleAnd a brass handrail beside the door.Disoriented Express - Brass HandleHer screen door is beautiful!  The stains show off the beauty of the wood.  A brass light shines to show our way at night.Disoriented Express - DoorI can’t wait to see what she’s done inside.  Let’s go in.  All aboard!  As soon as we step inside you can see that she has done this right – she’s left no detail undone.  We’re greeted by a grandfather clock!Disoriented Express - ClockAnd the dining area is exquisite.  From the grain of the woods. . .Disoriented Express - Table To the pretty chandelier overhead.Disoriented Express - ChandelierThe details continue in the kitchen. . .Disoriented Express - KitchenAnd the bedroom area. . .Disoriented Express - BedTo the brass and copper luggage rack overhead. . .Disoriented Express - Overhead StorageAnd the beautiful mirror on the closet door.Disoriented Express - MirrorThank you for taking this tour with me.  I loved having you come along.  It was fun.  There are little bits and pieces of things we missed.  We may have to come back and look around again sometime.

  5. Wow! These are amazing! I can "see" the owner's passion coming through on both of these beauties. I have been camping many times during my lifetime. I am overwhelmed by the amount of "stuff" ... should say "collectibles" they pack up to decorate the outside of their trailers. Is there a competition involved?
