My husband and I are currently restoring 3 vintage trailers. #1 is a '65 Apache Silver Buffalo pop up tent trailer. #2 is a '76 Apache Mesa solid state pop up (this one is on the back burner for now). #3 is a '79 Trillium Jubilee (cushions re upholstered, and all the cutesy stuff is done, the hubs is replacing most of the cabinets as she was neglected). We love camping although we don't have as much time as we'd like to do it. Camping is our favorite way of travel, you get to meet interesting people and see interesting places. We have instilled this love of camping in our children, who are both grown. Our son lives out in Alberta. Our daughter moved back home to Ontario where we currently live. We have met some wonderful people over the years at "Apache" round ups, and are looking forward to meeting "Eggers" now that we have a fibreglass camper. Our favorite time of year to camp is fall, no bugs, no heat (in Ontario), and quiet places.
I'm a great cook, I take my slow cooker camper with us. The hubs is a long haul trucker and is a jack of all trades, he is my computer guru too and is a very generous man willing to help you with a part or fixing something.
Looking forward to adding some this summer and fall!
We like to restore campers and find that they are more affordable than buying new...let's face it...they just don't make things like they used too! Our current project, the trillium is coming along well. I managed to find some retro bark cloth curtain panels for $10 at a thrift shop and have redone the cushions. We are excited about getting this trailer on the road!
