The Sweet Little Santa Fe Is Gone And Now We Are Working On Another Vintage Travel Trailer Makeover

The 1964 Santa Fe has found a new home! The new owner is the cutest man that wanted her soooooo bad. It all started when we took her to a wedding a couple of weeks ago. The father of the bride spotted it when we pulled in and ever since could not take his mind off of the Santa Fe. We received several phone calls from Dale (the father of the bride) telling us how much he wanted her. Finally we gave in and gave Dale what he wanted...he took her home last week. Camano Island will now be her new address. 

We now have a new project trailer...a 1971 Red Dale. 

Here's a peak inside. It's pretty dark. No cushions on the gaucho...we hate that...foam can be so pricey. 
 More darkness in the dinette area. 
Fast forward.....we have started working on the inside of the Red Dale. Here you'll see it's got a nice bright coat of paint on the walls. It's actually one of our Funky Junk Sisters Paints. We used the color Ice Cream.  Dixie found a great price on foam so the gaucho now has new cushions!
We have started upholstering the cushions with a neutral brown Naugahyde. 
Next the kitchen cabinets get a make over with a coat of paint too!
We will post more as we move along with the vintage travel trailer makeover so stay tuned to this blog. See ya soon Junksisters.
