Meet The Glamper

A couple years ago when I was at Tractor Supply, I picked up a magazine called Mary Janes Farm.

The issue focused on women taking vintage camping trailers and fixing them up both on the outside and the inside. The article called the finshed projects Glampers. I knew I had to have one.

A few weeks later a friend of ours said he wanted to sell the camper he had. A 1973 Holiday Vacationer Travel Trailer. His parents had bought it back in the 1970's and it most recently had been used for hunting trips. When it arrived at my house, it had the original upholstery and three inches on mud on the floor.

Last summer my husband and I stripped the outside and painted it. Let me introduce you to my Glamper.






I'm still working on the interior. So more posts will follow as I finished the inside.

I came here to comment on how absolutely adorable the camper is. But, much more importantly I just saw one of your favorite sites is the Alpha Gamma Delta site. I'm an AGD! Go squirrels! That just makes me like your site even more.

I LOVE THIS!!! Our 5th wheel was just totaled due to water damage and I've been trying to talk the husband into replacing it with a vintage camper to fix up. Following along to see how it turns out. :)
