We did it! Gulp. We finally purchased a Pop-Up Camper.
I’m a sucker for nostalgia, and this rig is from a past chapter in my life.
Until I was 6, my family and I would set up shop in one of these puppies. We’d spend our summers traveling around, setting up from campsites in northern Ontario to orange groves in Florida.
I loved the excitement of gearing up, and transporting our home away from home – to some undiscovered (by us) woodsy destination. I still do.
And then, I distinctly remember visiting our new cottage- and shortly after, my parents sold the camper. The original trailer is long gone- but with fond memories in my back pocket, I knew I would again share a similar experience with my own family.
This new project does not mean we’re planning to retire our existing camping equipment (particularly our tents). We’re simply revisiting our sleeping arrangements in the great outdoors. Especially with a toddler- this should make our excursions a little brighter.
Welcome to our latest acquisition (giggle): 1989 Coleman Shenandoah
NOTE- Our interiors are blue & peach- but just as hideous.
This is a project- as our new endeavor needs a DYI spirit and some TLC. Think Airstream- think color – think bright.
Stay tuned… Next we fix her up!
