I can’t really say that we are fully “into” this tin can hobby just yet. We bought a 1981 Go Tag A Long from a friend back in 2014. At about the same time, we bought a piece of homesteading property, sold our home, unjobbed, and began restoring a pre-civil war, two story log house on said property. So our little trailer, which we had started on, gutted, and re-wired, began being used for storage. We bought a 1993 5th wheel to live in while we worked. And worked. And worked.
Fast forward to 2022- Still working on cabin but are now living in ground floor level while we continue on the upstairs. Earlier this year, I saw the article about TCT in Country Magazine. I LOVED it and I can honestly say it sparked my interest back up in a big way. So I joined TCT and have been unloading items stored in our little trailer. Getting ready to move it to a location that will make it easier to continue work.
It will probably be summer 2023 before we can get it finished as cabin comes first! But I cannot wait to post my “finished” pics on the FB page!
We tow with a Jeep Commander and as yet have not attended any rallies etc.
In the past we have tent camped and we owned a pop up camper for several years and loved it.
I am enclosing photos of the day we adopted our trailer. We brought it home and I spent the entire day cleaning. My then Great Dane, Jemima Puddlepup, and I camped overnight in the side yard!
I loved reading your story. especially about Re-kindling your interest and enthusiasm for the vintage camper. Looking forward to seeing your “finished” pics.
Welcome. A journey of stops and turns can lead to wonderful adventures. Thank you for sharing!
