My dream finally became a reality - I purchased a vintage travel trailer! I bought this Midway 1959 travel trailer from a really lovely couple up north a few weeks ago. I really knew nothing of trailers going into it, so I just learned as I went along. We were so ambitious to finish it as soon as possible because we just wanted to get it out on the road! It was just as fun to fix up as it is to camp it in, just because I love giving old items new life! It took a lot of elbow grease, time, and patience but I am finally done with her and I couldn't be happier. Overall the trailer was in decent condition but was in need of some TLC. Water damage on one panel, chipped and distressed wood, and window problems were the biggest issues, which weren't too bad.
At first, I couldn't even imagine sleeping in the bed area; filled with dirt, grime, spiders and other creepy crawlies. I unearthed some yucky insects over there! It's amazing what some deep cleaning and fresh paint can do to a place!
