Ahhh! Seriously, that is how I feel! We have worked so dang hard on this project and it feels so good to finally share it.
First of all, we realized dreams are expensive. Not only financially, but expensive with time. We had to remind ourselves continually that we have dreamt of this for 4 years and that this is the story we want to tell, not giving up and being comfortable.
We also are blown away by the support of our friends and family. We had a deadline to leave before wedding season, so we had so many sweet friends and family members spend HOURS of their time helping us. What?! Such a gift! It reminded me that I want to be all about helping others succeed in their dreams. It is life-changing.
We would also like to take this time to apologize to our neighbors for having to see a pile of paneling and an old toilet in our yard for a while. Oops. 🙂
Alright… on to the trailer! This is our 1971 Red Dale trailer, made in Longmont, CO! We got this buddy on craigslist several months ago and it had a lot of damage including water damage (something to look for if you are in the market). We have spent hours on You Tube and we now know most of the home depot staff by name, so please don’t hesitate to ask any questions if you are renovating!
And now…. the new Red Dale ~
This final photo is us in Sonoma, CA in April. We will be sharing our road trip soon!!
