After reading the SOTF book, collecting all the magazine articles I could get my hands on, and bookmarking umpty-ump blogs about vintage trailers, I was totally hooked in Tybee after seeing them in person! It's one thing to see these vintage gems in print, but in person, all I could say was, "OMG!"
I had seen this beauty at the Country Living Fair, but wasn't able to actually go inside to see the details. Red is not a color in my decorating palate, but I have to admit that this Lady Bug motif was off the charts!
Beth's tropical theme was darling both inside and out. I felt like I was parked right on Tybee Beach!
I loved so many things about Rebecca's "Bookmobile"...the size, the interior layout, the birchwood interior, the simplicity of her decorating.
As I moved from trailer to trailer, taking pictures and making mental notes, I was starting to realize what I was truly attracted to...a trailer around the size of my SplashT@B, late 60's or early 70's, a Scotty Sportsman or Shasta Compact, earthy colors, comfy looking and feeling inside. While I appreciated the cowgirl, western theme, that wasn't for me. While I loved the wild, bold colors, I knew I wouldn't head in that direction either. No comic strip characters, no animals, no fru-fru-lacy-girly stuff either.
So I spent the entire weekend looking at the outsides, peeking in the insides, gathering ideas and getting totally hooked on the idea of owning my own vintage trailer!
