Cedars of Lebanon State Park has filled up with campers of all sizes and shapes for the 4th of July weekend. Our favorite – besides Scotty, of course – is the 1976 Fleetwing parked by the registration office. This morning we met the owner, who told us that he and his wife had spent the better part of a year gutting and renovating this little canned-ham type travel trailer. The camper cost $300 and altogether they have put $3,800 more into it. The result is a gorgeous vintage, complete with a new paint job in the original color scheme. I’m going to try to get a picture when it stops raining.
We invited the Fleetwing couple to come see our progress on Scotty – though, much of what we’ve done is not visible. You’re invited to come inside too.
Here’s Scotty on the day we brought her home. Note the upholstery, wallpaper, flooring, and general state of disarray.
Here’s what she looks like now.
We recently took the red flowery wallpaper off the back wall and found water damage. We’ve repaired that and painted the wall with Kilz. I haven’t quite decided what I want to do there yet but I’m thinking of making a wallpaper collage out of maps.
She’s still a work in progress but we’re getting there!
