Look what LOML got me!!!

Well of course you all know LOML can NOT keep a secret for nothing! The big 50 b'day is coming soon and LOML has been searching for the last year for my dream of a 1960 Shasta! I want to join SISTERS ON THE FLY and well you have to have a trailer! I believe LOML fell in love with her before I did, she is my favorite color RED!  A 1961 (pretty close to a 1960) 12 1/2 foot cream puff... we headed down to East Texas to bring her home!  We picked her up from  Lorrie@Cute as Pie Cottage!  FYI...Lorrie also used to have this one!!  We made the drive back from deep east texas to far north texas last night in about 3 hours, stopped to buy tow lights and brought the gal home!  We love her already, her wings are adorable - would you agree? Working on a floor plan now!   Please help me on interior - what colors? should I do a vintage dinette table and bench? fold down benches for a bed or a full size bed in the back of the trailer? The stove that came with her is brown adorable! Maybe paint stove? Buttercup yellow? Color on interior, should I paint or re-stain the Honey Oak? Whew.... I am tired just thinking of all the options! Which is why I need your help and a tylenol PM!! HUGS! Valarie

Valarie,
I want one!!! I would just sit it in the back yard and it could be my little hideaway! Can't wait to see what you do to the interior.

So happy she has a new home! I had lots of plans and then went and got married! So there you go. Sorry we were not here to greet you. We did put an offer in on the house we were looking at and finally heard late last night that we got it!. have fun and let me know what you are naming her.
Hugs,
Lorri

Oh my God, we lived in a little Shasta like this as newlyweds on our first piece of property a LONG time ago. Ten acres and two youngsters, what were we thinking? We sure lived lean then, didn't we? Your fixup will be wonderful, can't wait to see.
