My “Trailer Away From Trailer”

Posted by Tanille

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

Somehow I ended up in a single-wide trailer, in Reno, Nevada. And somehow I love it. Here is where I tell my story about my trailer, and my passion for small space living, photography, travelling, and running.

  1. That is very cool – it’s so nice to have your own bed and cook your own food on the road. Just curious where it was you camped and what routes you took. Planning on going that way next month.

    • Hi Cathy!

      We took 299 West over to Patricks Point camground. The Koa we stopped at on the way was in Lassen. Coming back we took 36 which was a beautiful drive but it took forever! I don’t recommend this hwy if you are towing a trailer. Although we did find a beautiful quiet campground in Mineral on the way home. I definitely recommend Patricks Point, there is a nice hike down to the beach and it is beautiful. The only drawback is that it was a little crowded. I hope you have a great time and thanks for the comments!
