Some people collect stamps, coins or other small items. When I was younger we didn't have a lot of room, so I collected thimbles.
Now that we live on an acreage and we have room ... I collect vintage travel trailers and other vintage camping things.
It started innocently by just wanting a little "MOM's Getaway"... to have a place to fix up and read at night. Like most collections.. one isn't enough. Before I knew it I had several. Nancy's Vintage Trailer Park was born.
Unfortunately they sit out during the winter because we can't afford a big metal building to store them during the winter months. They are all in need of repair and someday I hope to restore them all to their former glory, but for now I fill them with vintage treasures based on a theme for each trailer.
We've had slumber parties... where everyone gets their own trailer ... and we have 50's parties, but mainly we just light them up at night and get a campfire burning and our family sits around the burn ring and discuss the day while eatting smores.
