I had every intention of posting the progress Chris made while painting Cecilia. It never happened. Instead, a week long camping trip happened and we began homeschool after that. Homeschool offers a lot of freedom, but it sucked up most of the time I spent working on this blog. Continue reading “1963 Shasta Compact for Sale”
We had big plans to paint Cecilia a while back. Those plans were pushed into the future due to rain. Looking back at my post 6 Mistakes We Made When Purchasing a Vintage Camper, I realize I should have added a 7th mistake. This project would have went so much faster if we had a place to work indoors. We were often in a race with the weather.
Plans to paint were pushed even further into the future when we decided we wanted to replace the back piece of skin. Continue reading “Vintage Camper Skin Replacement”

Timehop recently served up a memory of our first camping in Cecilia. I think the 3 question marks sum up the excitement I felt as I waited for the clock to hit 5 pm. I had a good laugh when I saw this reminder of my excitement, because six years ago I had no idea that we were in for more bad than good on that trip.

We knew for a long time that we wanted some type of backsplash behind the kitchenette area of the camper. I really wanted pressed tin tiles, but I couldn’t find anything that I loved. When I found textured, paintable wallpaper that looked like pressed tin, I knew this was the direction I wanted to go. I’ve been showing little sneak peeks of it over at my Instagram account, but I wanted to gather all of the photos in one place.
We are leaving the wallpaper white right now, but as I mentioned above, it is paintable. If you are interested in purchasing it, you can buy it here.

We were fortunate that our vintage camper came with all of the windows intact. I have talked to a lot of people who struggle to find replacements, so I’m creating a resource for those people. These are all of the tips I could gather on the internet to help you find replacement jalousie windows or parts for your jalousie windows.

We were introduced to Nature’s Coffee Kettle at an outdoor fair a couple of years ago. By that time, we had already tried making coffee at the campground in variety of different ways. I remember how excited I was to see the guy demonstrate how the system worked. Continue reading “Review: Nature’s Coffee Kettle”
I find myself Googling ‘where do I buy a camper awning’ more often than I should. It really isn’t in the plans or budget at the moment, but I want one. I am always a fan of using a service or product that is recommended by someone I know, so I’ve been compiling a list of awning companies recommended by people Continue reading “Where Do I Buy a Vintage Camper Awning?”
