our new Home On Wheels

Instead of staying up late at night trying to figure out a boy’s name for our little guy who’s due… let’s see, T minus 13 days, Collin and I sit side by side looking at Pinterest and getting camper renovation ideas. For some crazy-awesome reason we thought this was a good time to buy a camper and renovate it. Something we’ve been wanting to do for years. Well, Friday we picked up our new home on wheels and spent every spare second over the weekend working on it. We got tons done. Or… ummm… Collin got tons done. But I am so excited! This crazy idea is going to be the source of insanely fun ‘glamping’ memories. I can’t wait! Here’s some dreamy campers I saw online and posted some of our process below.


Lots of helpers if you count Tuque-who is great at watching paint dry. Quincey is very skilled at painting herself and everything in sight. Nothing is safe.

Can’t wait!

    I truly love this glamping idea that’s catching on. If my husband and I didn’t have a three year old trailer, I’d be VERY tempted to try this idea. Your girls, and son will love the memories of growing up camping. Congrats on your new home :)

    That is so cool! I bet you guys are going to make some great memories! We had the hardest time picking names for our boys. Why are boy names so much harder than girls?

    I know what your collection will be about. That camper is too stinking cute and would make a great play house for the girls.

    My in-laws had a Shasta camper like that! My heart breaks to think they sold it about 15 years ago for $800. It was in mint condition too. My hubby and I own a fancy camping trailer with all the modern conveniences but I sure would like to own an oldie but goodie!

    Have fun!

    I totally love it! We have one too but it’s a contemp. design. Invest in an annex and some colour co-ordinated sleeping bags as they are so much easier to wash :) Happy travels with your little clan,
    Jo

    We’ve been renovating a Shasta like the ones in your pictures, it’s been a lot of work for my hubby but I can’t wait to take it out! We’re planning on going to a vintage trailer meet up at Willard Bay in September…hopefully it is done and been in use before than :). Good luck with yours.

    Like you we have 3 girls and one little man. Always had boy names picked out for when the others were born but didn’t get a chance to use them. Then when our little man arrived none of them seemed appropriate . . . Our little maverick was named McCrae and it fits him perfectly! I’m sure whatever name you choose will be just as perfect for your family as the first three!

    Fantastic, how exciting. I always wanted a campervan or a little caravan. I am sure that you will all have many happy adventures in it. Good luck with the name choosing!
