camper love

I just love vintage campers. How ironic for someone who doesn't even have a driving license. But I'd love to have one parked on some land somewhere and then go and visit it on weekends. Like a cabin :) (how I would get there is another story --- I'm sure that Mr. B would want to be part of this dream)(really, truly -- that wasn't sarcastic -- he has a strong sense of adventure)

Anyway -- have you heard of Sisters on the Fly? It is a group of women (nearly 1,000) from around the U.S. who own and restore vintage camping trailers. Your should see their gallery! Of course I'm pinning them to my pinterest board -- Camper Love.

This one is by Cath Kidston in her online magazine.


Of course, I could buy a new one. This one is about $14,000 and is made in Canada! but it seems a shaem to buy a new one, only to park it. And I can't see me in a car pulling a trailer (even with someone else driving)

Not too hard to get hooked on cute campers like that - esp. Kath Kidson's. I love everything she does!

I love campers too. Not camping...say in a tent...nope not me. But a camper is a whole other thing! I have very fond memories of traveling across the USA and Canada in our camper as a kid. Loved it!

Yep, I've got camper van envy too.

I'd just like to have one as my library, park it in back and go out to read, a little fridge and tea pot and voila!.

WOW!
That camper looks like an after dinner mint.
I'm in.
Could we go to a camper show sometime.
A driver who would go home is all we need.
Love Mom

What great little trailers. But I have you know that I got on a long side-tracked journey. Ha!
