There are 12V LED strips available. While I got mine at Bulbs America, dimmer versions are now available from eBay at far less if you do a search. If you are going to use it outside, be sure to get a waterproof version - they insert the strip in a clear tube. They can be cut every 3 SMDs to what ever length you need & leads soldered to the left overs to make more strips.

So the fun begins. You're going to have a lot of fun putting your glamper together. I've been doing that too. I think I told you I'm going with a vintage cowgirl theme. I went to Texas this week for a wedding and had a great time hunting through antique and junk stores in the Texas hill country. The thrill of the hunt!
I considered the pop-up awning too. I think that's a great option. Keep us posted.

I've seen glass tiles used in Airstream trailers in both kitchen and bathroom application and think the look fantastic. Great idea.

FYI, Deryk

I was at Hobby Lobby, Lowes, Ross and even Kmart (I didn't even know N, CO still had Kmarts till I ran across one today). Anyway, they all had Gypsy type LED, Battery/Solar lanterns!



Deryk, have you seen where people are doing backsplashes with those glass, flower arrangement fillers? Kinda like flat marbles? Come in great colors and inexpensive!

Thanks Robin...Yeah that is a thought if I can't find the tile I like. I was even looking at some you tube video's on tileing lol. Its scary how the next 2 months my weekends are already getting filled with stuff and there is already 4 camping events planned ...1 in march and 3 so far in april. I feel for the people tent camping but as long as it isn't snowy/icy me and my ParkLiner are heading out to play.

Im probably heading to lowes or home depot today... want to start on the backsplash. I wont do more then make coffee in my caravan with the ratfur backsplash.

I was looking but haven't found yet, brass candle lanterns at a reasonable price to hang off the ez-up to add light. I had a kerosene lantern I used with my gypsy vardo...I would prefer not to be carrying the lamp oil unless I found a great lantern at a great price.

I have an older version of this powered by 2 of the 6 volt Lantern batteries, and it also has a 12 volt DC power cord.
I installed an external 12 volt receptacle that I bought at West Marine.

I've heard of ceramic tiles in bigger, heavier units. I'll be interested to see how well they stand up to a lighter trailer like the Parkliner's bouncing around!

Glass!

Sounds cool...what colors ya gonna use?

Speaking of motifs, I adopted the "cheesy chicken-related theme" for my Trillium. This based on
1) The fact that I have no taste at all.
and
2) It seemed to go with the general brownness of the cupboard doors.
and
3)When I went looking for curtains, some with chickens on them were on sale for (I kid you not) $2.00 a pair at Walmart.

I've since added matching potholders and dish towels from the Dollar store...all dolled up for about twenty bucks!
