Smell

Hi Kays! You asked about the smell. Please understand, it's nothing objectionable ... it's like a new car smell, only better.

108. Our rig contains the smell of adventure!

109. Our rig smells like us ...

110. Of our stuff stored inside...

111. Of stuff we've cooked and spilled...

112. Of our pets and of the places we've been.

113. Just like your house smells when you come home after a long time on the road. The house ... and our trailer ... smell like home.

114. The odor of places, things and people we love.

115. In a pine forest, our rig smells mountain fresh.

116. At the beach, it smells salty.

117. Immediately upon entering the trailer, the smell causes my blood pressure to drop ... and my pulse quicken.

118. It just smells good ... there's no other way to describe it!

More

119. I love the sound of the wind blowing in our open trailer windows at night.

120. I love the way the drone of the rig's air conditioner drowns out the sounds of a noisy campground or neighbor.

121. I enjoy closing the blinds, turning on a radio, and being alone ... totally alone with my wife.

#s 122-137

122-137: I enjoy planning what I am going to put into each of the 15 storage spaces of my Casita.

We love it for the memories it stirs,

We love it for being His and Hers.

We love it for its' versatility,

We love it for its' utility.

But most of all, in spite of our antics,

if (for nothing else) its' truly romantic.

144. I love it because even if it hails, it still shines brightly in the sun with no dents!

145. I love it because it's easy to push around on my patio by hand.
146. I love it because I can keep it on my patio all winter, no storage fees to worry about.

147. We love how she looks in our yard wrapped up in her cover.

148. We love to hear everyone talk Casitas and other Fiberglass trailers.

149. We love to make camping plans just to be with her.

150. We love to bring her home dirty and wash her to see her shine.

151. We love to show her photo to friends and listen to their comments.

152. We love to keep her company and sit inside her and hate it when she's alone.

153. We love to get referrals to show our love for her.

154. We love to know we have a comfortable king bed and not have to reply on a hotel for a good nights rest.

155. We love her air conditioner on a hot summer day or night.

156. We love to watch TV in our warm bed on a cold winters night.

157. We love the refrigerator that holds our delights close at hand.

158. We love the private bathroom during the dark nights.

159. We love that our feet touch her warm carpeted floor.

160. We love the many lights that light up our cozy Casita.

Kind of like sand...

Kind of like the sand from Matagorda Island that I continue to distribute over every campground in Texas, every time I set up my tent, right? Despite my best efforts to sweep it out (vacuum cleaners and tents don't get along too well), we continue to carry tiny granular reminders of a trip I took before Alane and I even met.

Only the Matagorda sand has no smell. If tents smell at all, they smell of waterproofing compound (new ones), or musty storage odors (if they have done time in the garage).

I much prefer the odor of my flannel shirt when I take it out of the back of the truck after a night by the campfire (that is, assuming it has only been an overnight trip. Other, less welcome smells might otherwise intrude). :xx

Some of my best memories of camping are the smells, but I usually don't get to keep the smells. This may be an advantage to fiberglass trailers that I hadn't thought of. (And here I was trying to imagine the smell of fiberglass!)

162. I love the way we can be so far away from home yet seem like we're home in our little fiberglass house.

163. I love the fact our fiberglass wonder is so simple, yet deluxe.

164. I love the fact there is little maintainance for the roof .

165. I love knowing there's not much that can break.

166. And what can go wrong is usually easy to fix.

167. Even if everything breaks, I love that we're still sleeping off the hard cold ground.

168. I love our rig's mini-blinds ... much nicer than curtains.

169. I love the fact so many others love their little rigs too!

Come on!

Come on!

Everyone! Post a few love notes to your fiberglass wonders! Please encourage others you happen to meet on the road ... and on the internet ... to visit here and post.

I'd really like to get 1,000 reasons why we all love our little fiberglass wonders.

Perhaps then, folks will understand our mania.

On second thought ....

It's a fiberglass thing ... they wouldn't understand!

Thank God we do!

love it

170. Love it because it didn't cost me a lot of money.
171. Love that I can redo it to fit me not the norm or the average.
172. Love it because my Tom might take up camping again.
173. Love it because other people want her.
174. Love that she matches my truck/car.
175. Love the amount of extra space I get in the drive when I traded up from the MH.
176. Love that I don't have to have her oil changed.

Why we love her

177. Love that we can admire the view outside her big windows.
178. Love being able to park so close to a stream that it lulls us to sleep at night.
179. Love that she is so easy to park we never hit a tree.
180. Love that she easily fits into small campsites with lots of trees.
