Table for Two in The Pink Paradise

I have been thoroughly enjoying the Pink Paradise this year – as usual.  And while she hasn’t actually seen the pavement yet, she has come in quite handy.  I love to spend time in her reading, napping, and hosting cozy dinner’s.  This table for two is my idea of a perfect picnic.  No bugs, a […]

Frolic Travel Trailer -Pink Paradise Update – 2013

At last, I’ve made my way back to the Pink Paradise! If you’re new to my blog,  you might be wondering what the Pink Paradise is.  The Pink Paradise is a 1972 Frolic Travel Trailer that I decided to rehab early last summer.  When this little travel trailer is finished, it will be all that […]

Vintage Camper – Pink Paradise – Update #3

Pink Paradise–Update #2

A lot has happened in the Pink Paradise since my last update.  We insulated and installed wainscoting on the ceiling and wall in the area where the table/bed will be. Spackled and filled holes, prepped the surface of the floor, and installed self-stick tiles where the table/bed will be.  We wallpapered behind the stove, and then took […]

The Pink Paradise – Update #1

Real progress in the Pink Paradise. When I started this project I consulted with a couple that sells vintage travel trailers in our area.  My big question to them was simple.  Do I keep the travel trailer original, or change it to something more my style.  There weren’t any nice birch cabinets to refinish in […]

Vintage Camper Remodel

A blogger friend of mine suggested that I dedicate a page on my blog to the restoration of our 1972 Frolic travel trailer which I have named the Pink Paradise.  This camper was a diamond in the rough, and became a DIY project that consumed more time, money, and elbow grease then I initially intended to put into it.  But now, I couldn’t feel […]

Share Your Vintage Camper Story

Since hubby and I remodeled the Pink Paradise I’ve gotten several emails from other vintage camper enthusiasts.  Let me just say how much that I love hearing from people that share my passion for these old beauties like I do. My camper is about 90% finished and I’m already looking forward to warm spring days […]

1972 Frolic Camper Restoration Project

I’ve been tracking down (affordable) paint for the exterior of the Pink Paradise and as soon as she’s painted I’ll be sure to share her new coat with you.  I’m pretty certain that this will be the last post you will see about her interior restoration.  It’s been a long haul; and she took more […]
