At this time I would like to introduce you to
"Tootsies Painted Lady"
Well she's not painted yet but that is my goal!!
This cute little 18ft 1968 Ideal trailer has stolen my heart.
Don't ask what has come over me, I just don't know yet, but I'm sure there's a scientific term.
Maybe it's called "Traileritis" or I've seen it called "Glamping disorder", what ever the case I have contracted it with a vengeance.
It's been five days since my Hansom Honey.
brought her home to me.
Five days of non-stop work with no clear end in sight
He picked her up for the great price of $400.00, the owner wanted $650.00 but after one text and a promise of $400.00 cash, we had a deal.
I tell you what, the minute he pulled her into the driveway it was love at first sight.
She's in great shape structurally and all her plumbing is in working order.
Let me give you an inside tour of her retro fashion.
Please do not adjust the color on your monitor, that is avocado green your looking at.
I love it!!
I remember growing up as a kid with avocado green appliances, they were all the rage!!
She's quite shapely on the outside as well with no big dings.
Someone strapped her with a welded on bike rack that does nothing for her figure.
That will be one of her cosmetic surgeries to come.
For a Lady of 43 years she a beauty and like is stated earlier, fully functional.
We plugged her in and she hummed to life with light.
Her water tank is clean and perfect, yea!!
Hold up maybe I spoke to soon it appears that she has a little leak in her plumbing, but nothing a little fiberglass and my honey can't fix
But most importantly she has no bad water leeks.
It seems that gal's of this age and water don't get along to well.
So just what are my plans for this sweet gal?
Well since she showed up I have been doing a bit of research on Vintage Trailers.
