a peek into my trailer // September 10, 2014

Well, it's been a pretty wet week here at the gypsy camp. I woke up one night last week to a flash flood warning on my phone, but I really didn't think anything of it. The next morning when I woke up I found my trailer completely surrounded by flowing water. The whole county had been drenched, and some parts flooded, but from the looks of it, my campsite got the worst of it. Other parts of the county have since dried, yet I'm still left wading through ankle deep water every time I set foot out my door. And, of course, it's currently raining. Ah well, the joys of campground life, eh? I will say that thank goodness my trailer has stayed nice and dry inside!

Since it's a bit wet to be playing around outdoors for pictures, I thought I'd share some more photos of my trailer. I LOVE how it's turning out in here. It may be small, but it's cheery and cozy as anything. (As per usual, you can see many, many more trailer decor photos on my Instagram!)

Aaaand, one last thing. I have been getting some questions about many things trailer related and I want to answer them all in one post (I'm thinking of dusting off my video camera and maybe making a vlog!). So, if there is anything you'd like to know about any aspect of trailer life, let me know in the comments below, and I'll be happy to answer them in my upcoming post! XO

thank goodness your trailer stayed dry! It looks like a very cozy and inviting place - perfect for curling up with a good book on a rainy day :)

I'm looking forward to your Q&A on trailer life! I was just wondering how long you've been living at a campsite, how you found it, and what your cost of living is like (if that's not too personal of a question.) thanks!

i love this. the dusty, golden, 1960s/70s feel, the cozy pillows and fluffy cat... *sigh* what a great fort you lead :)

Fabulous! There's something I love about such a small space, like you can't really have too much stuff which makes the things you do have much more precious. Serious love has gone into your space!

Kati said...

Your trailer looks like the coziest place to be in, especially when it is not really nice outside...

looks like the perfect space to cozy up in, especially in the cool, wet months coming up. looking forward to watching your vlog - what a great idea!

Carly Kaste said...

Eep, glad your trailer survived the flood! Gosh, it's such a sweet quaint little thing, isn't it? You're making me wanna buy one for myself and take off! ♥

Your trailer looks so adorable and cozy! I think a vlog about trailer life would be amazing, can't wait for that!

Britlyn said...

Your trailer looks so cozy, just as you said it was. See as I live in Wisconsin too, you know I understand how cold winters can be. So my question is, does your trailer stay warm during the cold months? Is it super expensive to heat?

Also, once again I love your pictures and your grey cat looks just like the cat I used to have named Diamond!

That mouse mug! And caaaats :)

Glad you are staying safe from the rain! It must be wonderful to have such a cozy place to curl up in when the weather is bad outside :)

Danielle Morgan said...

I'm really glad that you're safe and you didn't get carried away in a crazy flash flood chase! It was raining pretty bad up here in Alaska the past few days. I hate driving in the rain, but it has to be done!

I really enjoy seeing pictures and learning about your cozy trailer space. I especially like that first picture in this post. :)

Amazing decoration and adorable cat! I wish it was raining here, it's too hot and it's still winter!

Definitely looks cosy, would like to hear more of what it's like. Absolutely adore the kitty cats.

I'm a long time lurker of your blog just commenting to say that I'll really look forward to your Q&A as trailer living has always interested me and I've long wondered how practical it is. So I have a few questions if you don't mind:
1) How hard is it to fit al of your belongings in your trailer? Did you have to get rid of a ton of stuff and do you just have any general advice in this area? Particularly regarding closet space and stuff.
2) Is finding a spot to set up pitch easy? Can you get mail or how does that work? And can you get Internet in your trailer?
Sorry for all the Qs but it's a lifestyle change I've been seriously considering lately and I'm wondering if it's realistic to me ♥

I'm a long time lurker of your blog and I just wanted to finally leave a comment with a few questions for your Q&A as trailer living really interests me.
1) How do you fit your possessions in your trailer? Did you have to get rid of a lot of stuff, and do you just generally have any advice in this area? Particularly in terms of closet space.
2) Is it easy to find a spot to set up pitch? Are you able to get things like mail and internet at your trailer?
Sorry for all of the questions, I've just seriously been considering making this lifestyle change and wonder about all of the differences and practicalities of it ♥

(sorry if this comes through twice, I'm not sure if it worked first time!)
