Here we "GO" again!

Well, at least I certainly hope so!  And soon too!!!!  Can you guess what I'm talking about?  If you guessed traveling, then you were correct.  Yep my friends, I really am talking about going places.  And by golly, if I ever get more then 1 day at a time off from work we are hitting the road.  And... here's how we do it down here in the south.

Yes, my dear sweet bloggy friends we have officially reentered the ranks of RV ownership once again.  Or as one of my favorite TV characters from Duck Dynasty described it...
What does an RV stand for?  A redneck vacation!

We have owned several campers before, but have been out of this mode of travel for awhile now.  With the boys growing up and moving on, the two of us are ready to pick up and go.   We both found that we were actually missing our good times together while camping.  Oh the memories!  So, we made the decision it was time to find a little get away trailer for just the two of us now.

Because we have been down this road before we knew exactly what we wanted this time around.  We wanted a very light tow weight so we didn't have to buy a new vehicle and this one fit the bill.  I certainly didn't expect to also find one so purdy!  That's redneck language for "pretty" y'all!  Hehe!  Anyway, I absolutely fell head over heels for the white cabinetry in this new to us trailer.  We bought this from another couple who were getting out of camping.  I really loved some of the little decor changes she had made and was thrilled that they threw it all in for us.

Like this adorable bedspread.  This is the one she picked out but she also threw in the original one by the manufacturer as well.  

You know you have a good camper when the previous owners are stylish too right?

The colors of this camper are off white, beige, a light sage green and taupe.

It has a sweet little hall sink and closet.

While the shower and toilet are in a separate space on the opposite side of the hall.

Here is another little extra something they threw in with the purchase.  LOL!  Gotta love a camper who enjoys candlelight right?

I have been playing around with a few things I've pulled from the house to see what all I want to add to our camper before we drag in all the real camping stuff.

I've even removed a wall paper border that I wasn't too crazy about and am trying to decide if I want to add this picture or go with something else above the dinette.  

In the kitchen I added a few more things I already had that might actually have a useful purpose in here.  I am trying very hard to be practical to you know.

Now the only detail I can't seem to work out so easily is when I might actually be able to use it.  Hmm??? I am thinking I really need to do something about that!

If you happened by today I do hope you'll let me know.  I love to hear from you and I'd love to hear what you think about rednecking it!  LOL!  JK!  We have always really enjoy our camping days and am hoping to add many more.

I hope you have a great weekend!  I'll be working the 12hr sale, but as always I'll be dreaming...even more now for sure!


  1. I love it, Mary! What fun. We are restoring a 1976 GMC motor home-very retro and in good shape. We hope to use it this summer (if, like you) we can find time to go- xo Diana

  2. I love it Mary, I do so hope you find time to use it, it is so adorable! It's great it has a tub, I wouldn't mind camping if I had that!

  3. Oh, Congrats, Mary! I love your little camper and oh, it's just darling! We had always planned on doing this for years but we never did. Makes me a tad sad! :) I hope you get to go on a trip soon!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Get out!!! That is just beautiful! It sure beats the RV my parents had back in the 70s. I love the style of the whole thing, and now you are making me remember how much fun it was to go RVing.

    And Duck Dynasty? I have met a fellow DD lover? My sister got me hooked on that show. I love the family. In fact, I know someone whose company is a sponsor. They have met the family and say that they are the real McCoy.

    Lame pun. Intended.

  5. Why you lucky duck you Mary! I love it. Home away from home indeed. It is so cute! Enjoy. This is something I would love to do someday as well. First we have to get our kids off to college.

  6. Looks like a pretty awesome rig, Mary! When our children were little, we did a lot of camping & had various types of gear from tents, pop-up VW camper, tent trailer & back to tent. We had a ton of fun, but I'm very happy not to revisit those days. I really enjoy having someone else prepare my meals, make my bed and clean my! Truly hope you can get some time off!
