our vintage camper

we recently added a new member to our family.  we call him wilbur (get it?  it’s a canned ham trailer and he’s a famous pig?  Well, anyway….).  he is a 1959 FAN travel trailer who charmed the socks off us the moment we laid eyes on him.   I love camping.  i love setting up camp (I insist on having a beer in my hand at all times during set-up), i love sleeping in a tent,  i love the campfire, i love the mediocre coffee in the morning.  I love it all.  All except the reality of doing this with two excitable labs.  After a spate of campers started showing up in my social media streams my wheels started turning–if we had a camper, bringing the dogs with us might actually be enjoyable.   We found Wilbur on craigslist and brought him home.  We’re pretty happy with him.  Is camping more enjoyable with the dogs in a camper?  only mildly, but I’m hoping they get better.  Fingers crossed!
