Meet Our Vintage Trailer

 

Introducing our Vintage Trailer

Hey Girl Hey,

Yes, it’s time for another introduction, but this time I want to introduce you to our current project. She is a 1967 KENCRAFT trailer, She’s 18′ of pure awesomeness, or what soon will be. Currently she is un-named and for me that’s super weird but for my husband Dennis, he isn’t about naming her. We name our ‘things’ like Frenchie the pink sofa but when it comes to our cars and now trailer we don’t. hmmm I bet if a super cool name comes up that we can’t resist we might change our minds {wink wink}

Without further ado, here she is

 

 

 


 Her backstory and how we met

We packed up our Chevy and drove 7 hours north to visit my Dad and step-mom, Sandy’s home way up in Northern California, Greenville or as my Dad calls it “God’s Country”. It was summer of 15′, hotter than a mother I remember but, whatever we love a good road trip, plus I was going to see my Dad!

After we got there we of course walked the gorgeous the property when my eyeballs were glued to this trailer. It was across the property in this huge open garage they have with a few other trailers.. you know, different sizes for different places they go, why choose? (I’ll have to show you Sandy’s tiny Burro trailer soon, she re-did it herself and it’s so cute!)

Once I got inside my creative juices instantly started flowin,.. it was like I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!!! I was telling Sandy and my Dad my vision of what I’d do. I tilted my head to the side, batted my eyelashes and said DAAAAAAAAAAAD!

He knew I’d love it and so did sweet Sandy, who is a creative genius herself. The topic was dropped that night, but the next day they told me I could have it! They had picked it up from a yard sale not that long before, she said it was covered in pine-cones. I’m actually still finding them stuck in walls.

Sandy was going to clean it up and use it as a craft room, a zone to come out and do woodwork, craft it up or whatever.. it was kinda perfect because the guy that had it before her used it to clean his guns and make bullets.

We came back a few months later to pick her up, I remember the weather was much cooler then! Yay!  We had to first get new tires, rig the break light and get a slip from the DMV to transport her.

 No trailer breaks and 9 hours later she made it.

My dad also gave me his 1958 Chevy Apache Pick-up when he first moved up north about 15-16 years ago. We painted it flat black, but she will now be re-painted to match the trailer so it will look awesome pulling it.
