truckcamperThis Northwest, coffee drinking, rain loving, flip flops in 50 degree weather mom likes traveling with kids, but hates camping!  Several years ago my husband and I bought a trailer and became weekend warriors, hitting a new state park every weekend.  We overloaded ourselves on camping and sold the trailer after one year.

Fast forward several years and two kids later and we have decided to try again!  My husband has bugged me for months that he wants to buy a trailer so we can take the kids camping.  “Rent One!” I suggest.  But after some discussion and research we have decided to take the plunge and become outdoorsmen.  Needless to say I would much rather be spending my weekend in a lush hotel with a pool and maid service, but I suppose spending some quality time with the family in the dirt, eating BBQ and hiking through the woods won’t hurt.  I’ll still be taking plenty of vacations without a trailer in tow.

trailerAfter spending a couple of weeks in search of the “perfect” trailer we finally found the one and are headed to purchase it today.  With many things to consider such as length, weight, slideouts, bunkhouse, and whether to buy new or used; it can be a tough decision.  It wasn’t hard for me though to choose a new trailer, with innovative features such as a flat screen TV, full kitchen, electrical gadgets and all the ameneties you need to feel like you’re in a hotel in the woods (except I’m the maid). 

 So our new travel adventures on the road will begin soon.  Stayed tuned for my upcoming blog on our first camping trip. Two small kids in a trailer in the woods. Oh boy, this is going to be fun!
