I did add in an over sized over stuffed fabric stool, it sits on the oneside of our sofa and matches the sofa perfect, i have it up against the sofa so it looks like an L shape. it is great for rainy days as we can sit back and stretch out, also is great for an extra sitting area for my DD, along with that we travel with my 2 furry children, 1 being a german shepherd and anothe is a australian shepherd, so it is extra sleeping space for them as they own the couch takes up a little floor space but is great comfort...
where do people find camping outdo0r theme decorations. I love our trailer looking and having the feeling of outdoors, camping.
Outdoor World/Bass Pro Shops has a lot of outdoor theme decorations. I get lost in that department. If you can sew you can find fabric at places like JoAnns with camping, hunting, fishing and other outdoor themes. Some Wal*Mart stores also carry fabric.
Today I hit it lucky, having a hard time finding camping signs,outdoor themed items. I actually came across a cute little bedroom lamp with trees on it. The most luck i have finding camping decorations is the campground stores and they dont offer a lot of choices. Stores seems to offer anything for people with cottages but what about us with campers. My most cherished find is my hanging clock with no numbers and it says whatever. where do people find camping outdo0r theme decorations. I love our trailer looking and having the feeling of outdoors, camping. Not like my home. It is my vacation home, my cottage on wheels. My TT, my summer getaway. For those who decorate where do you find your special finds. We stopped at Niagara Falls Ny today to a local store that is 3 sisters trading post, awesome store for trailer picture frames and ext.

and Etsy. I usually buy from a specific Etsy person, but can't locate her info right now. Maybe later...
Our TT use to be tree's and bears with our new 5th wheel I changed the style and went seashells. I love to decorate in meaninful art. I took a picture of our foot prints in the sand and had it plaqued so it is now our key holder, I took the Myrtle Beach map, shrunk down pictures of our trip and made a collage over the map of our myrtle beach vacation, then I had it plagued. I had a small wall quilt hanging made up off summer themes, each square has a date on it from 1 to 31, it also reads camping calender "where memorries count not days. I also had a quilted round table cloth made with summer colours. I am sorry I am unable to post pictures, I am having trouble shrinky them down to fit. I love decorating the trailer to our own place. Love all your pictures also....
For many of you this will be over-the-top decorating, but if you're on Facebook you should check out this page. It's a fun group of woman, most of which own vintage trailers. Many of them are members of Sisters on the Fly.
Our 2012 glamper is already up to date bedding, cabinet and fabric-wise. I took the lead from the decor of model homes.
I added a few framed pictures, scented candles, accent lamps, plants, a wine rack, fancy Bath & Body soaps, good music, nice hand towels & centerpieces. I absolutely love spending a few minutes tidying up my camper back to showroom condition. I mean this is part of the reason people fall in love with them at the RV shows.
I also have small "guest kits" with shower items and a toothbrush for people that pop in and we invite to stay the night. Because we only have a queen pull-out airbed to offer, I invested in one set of good quality matching linens and pillows. I also keep a basket with extra swimsuits and PJ's for guests.
We have a summer seasonal site, so we never have to disassemble for travel, and we're always expecting guests. They bring the best beer!
Ya'll lettin' this die off? I'm about to get another trailer and looking at all kinds of threads for ideas, not just to repeat what we did in the above. Don't have that budget this time, nor is the trailer as nice.
Our 1983 Silver Streak trailer after we full-timed for most of 2007. Floors, curtains, and sofa were replaced. Had to replace floor rotted by toilet sprayer leak and the rest just needed some TLC (cabinet latches, window operators, etc) and a thorough cleaning of a "clean" trailer. (Pics start in the rear and coming forward). These were shot as part of a 115-pic CD sent to prospective buyers.
The next one will hopefully be in as nice condition, but with a rear bedroom configuration.
