Whats happened over the winter and this summer

Several modifications were in store for the glamper. After our maiden voyage I decided I didnt like the U shaped eating area in the front of the camper. I had Dave rip out the top of the U and relocate the water tank. He made me a new table top to match the wood/butcher block look of the counter tops and end table he had already made. In the process we decided to add a large deep cell battery and a 15 watt solar panel to keep it charged and to power small items when power was not available to plug into. It works like a charm! Most of our camping will be off grid so this made perfect sense.
In the front over the table we added a small open shelf below the storage compartments. This will be for dispalying small items we collect on the road.

At the rear of the camper was a storage cupboard over the bed. It really didnt function very well so I had Dave pull it out and build a shelf in the same theme as the table top. I now display my vintage suitcases that hold breakable items when moving and clothing that won't fit in the closet. Works like a charm!

We added new vinyl flooring, the padded woodfloor look, I didnt want to add additional weight and wanted it to hold up in any weather so it was vinyl over pergo.

More is to come I'm sure.

  1. Hey Heather,
    What great modifications you made...I wish I could put a shelf across the back/over the bed of my trailer but it curves around which would make the shelf awkward in shape & size...
    Love the red too. It makes your trailer really pop!
