I'm so proud of you for just getting out there! Looks like a good time was had by all. Now maybe there will be motivation to move on with the rehab (says she who has two trailer projects stalled in the driveway).

Good luck to your mom with the BB puppy from another (retired) adoption counselor.

Good for you Jess! Made a memory, bet it's the last time you forget the cooler ... add that to the checklist

Thanks for sharing the picture too

Having done several (car) resto's, I know the feeling of "why did I ever start this" and "it's never going to be done"!
Getting out there in it will help you finish it up!
Congrats on your maiden voyage!

Your shelter looks like one I was looking at from REI.

Do you like it? Would the one side possibly clear the door to the trailer?

Thanks, Nancy

Yep, it's the REI Alcove.

The peaked sides are just barely tall enough to clear the top of our Boler's door (which runs a little high with the new axle and wheels) if on a level site. It's only a temporary awning solution for us (already had it for car camping), but we'll still get use out of it because it's pretty easy to put up and move around a campsite. The optional wind walls have been nice for rain, extra shade, and temporary privacy and the whole thing (once tied down) held up to serious beach winds in Florida last year.

spring fever

Oh bummer, the Boler did not magically fix itself up over the winter after all:



I'm not proud we let our progress stall, but, to be fair, I'm really stretching my multitasking skills right now & Sam has been preoccupied with our toy car, so the Boler isn't the only thing that's slipped (you should see our kitchen right now!). All the more reason to put in a couple of solid weekends and get our escape pod ready to run away from home at the drop of a hat.

On the bright side, after opening it up (for the first time since November) we were shocked that it was perfectly dry inside. What a rarity to have done something right.

And, after all our electrical questions, we're going to tow it to a pro to get the converter, 30amp hook-up, and battery link installed right for piece of mind. Seems worth it.

I've really enjoyed reading this post! We are a family of 4 with a "MULTITUDE" of projects going on... they don't seem to stop! We are not doing an overhaul on our newly purchased '87 Scamp. My goal is to just get it ready enough to go camping....and GO! But it's really fun to read and hear all of the adventures, and I'm a bit jealous to see the depth at which owners work to clean up their campers. I'm so glad I found this site!
