Building An Adventure Trailer, it starts

If you know me at all, you know that I like the outdoors but do not like being wet or cold; both of these creating major issues for winter outdoor adventures for me.  Especially living in the pacific northwest!

So Everett has been on a kick to find a trailer for me that will have enough amenities to be useful, be big enough so that he can fit but also be small enough to keep me from feeling like an asshole for giving up my tent.  Keeping this project in a reasonable budget seemed nearly impossible.

We had a Goldilocks dilemma… when we looked at the tear drop trailers, they were too small and a bit of a joke for someone who is 6’5″ and neither of us wanted to stand outside in the cold to use the kitchen.  Then we went to an RV dealer to look at camp trailers and they were all too big to feel like we were enjoying the great outdoors, they seemed like portable mansions with far too many things that we didn’t need and didn’t want to pay for.

But then we may have found our just right, we’ll see if we both survive the conversion project: the cargo trailer!  Behold, the Adventure Trailer

Cargo trailer = great adventures?

As I write this it sits with all of its insides stripped out waiting for a trip to our neighborhood Lowes store to purchase styrofoam insulation.  As Everett was dismantling the interior is when it hit me: this is so much more of a project than I had really thought it would be.  In my mind we would throw our futon in there and magic would happen.  Guess I have to go find my wand still.

Any way, as this project moves along this will be my bedroom:

And this will be the kitchen:

You’ve got to work with me here and REALLY use your imagination!
