I can’t stop thinking about it. I can’t stop oggling the photos of it on Craigslist.
Apparently, the inside is “gutted.” And so I keep thinking I could put in some great floor, and a little dinette table, and a couple of mattresses. And make fantastic curtains out of some great Amy Butler fabric.
We go up to New York every summer to visit my husband’s folks. And this is how I want to travel there this year: with my two kids and their daddy and a week’s supply of PB&J in an adorable, retro travel-trailer with homemade curtains!
But it’s not cheap. It’s cheap for a trailer, but it’s not pocket change. And since it’s hard for me to even get the dishes done, I’m not sure when, exactly, I would re-panel the walls or make homemade curtains. (Though I do have a knack for making curtains!) Most likely, it would sit untended-to in the driveway for years and years and eventually get sold, again, on Craigslist looking just about how it does now.
But I still can’t shake the idea of it. And I have this habit of seeing things for how they could be instead of how they are.
I’ll probably never have this trailer in real life. But I’ll definitely put it in a book.
