About a month ago we purchased a 1982 19 foot Taurus travel trailer. And it is my new favorite thing. We just came back from a 6 day journey through Northern California to the coast and back. We found this trailer super cheap because it has a little bit of water damage and the previous owner didn’t want to deal with it. We thought, pffffft that’s not water damage!! This is no big deal. Everyone that has seen it has urged me to ‘please not re-do everything’ and I’m not. I love it just the way it is. I call it “campy”. And it’s actually in great shape, except for a few spots.
So last week we loaded it up and made some minor repairs. The confusion between what was in which trailer was comical. We had to start calling them the “house trailer” and the “camp trailer”.
And we were off. . .
We met up with our friends who had been traveling for a few days in their sweet Westfalia. It was great to catch up with old friends and live the “trailer life” by the beach.
My favorite camping wine.
A couple of things I have learned from this little trip.
1. I will never again camp at a KOA. It’s just not for us, we were the youngest people there in the oldest trailer.
2. I have a new appreciation for Westfalias. Very cool
3. I think I could possibly live in 120 square feet. . . at least temporarily. Hmmm
