If you have been a loyal follower of mine for awhile, you may have noticed that I travel often and that I live for road trips. Any chance that I can stay in an Airbnb, I typically stay in an Airstream or travel trailer because I have an obsession with them.
I’ve had an obsession with them for as long as I can remember and I knew from a young age that someday I would have my very own.
After years of dreaming of a camper, months of research and endless YouTube videos and blogs, I searched through Craigslist and found a listing for a 1978 Trillium 4500 camper nearby. The listing included these pictures:
I was already enamoured with this old gem but decided to pray about it and speak with my parents before taking the next step. With my parents approval, I sent an e-mail to the sweet older couple who happened to be selling it and asked to go see it that weekend.
When I first walked inside, I instantly fell in love. I knew I had to have her.
I made an offer and they accepted! On November 15th, she was delivered and I became an official camper owner! I named her Eleanor. She may be old and little but she’s mine.
I am so proud to be part of this amazing camper community now and I cannot wait until I hit the road with Eleanor. Of course, I still have to decide where our first road trip destination will be but I am so excited!
Today marks one month that Eleanor has been in my life and little by little I am making her my own. I have a few ideas and projects in mind before I take her on her first big road trip and if you would like to follow along be sure to follow here for more updates.
Happy camping everyone!
