While sitting on a closed freeway one day, pondering “what to do next” with my life, I looked over at the car parked next to me and noticed that they were towing a teardrop. I’d always wanted a teardrop trailer but had NO idea how much they would cost. So, right then and there I went on Craigslist and found a homemade one for sale. The next day, on a somewhat-irresponsible-whim, I bought it for $1,000 (which I borrowed from my 18 year old son) from an old guy who made it in his garage, atop a pop-up camper trailer frame.
So, in true Michelle-form, I placed an ARTIST WANTED ad on Craigslist. Within a few hours, several local artists submitted their work, and I hired one whose work mostly closely matches my style.
She weights just over a 1000 lbs, sleeps two (albeit cozy-like with an 8” thick memory foam, Full size, mold resistant, Parklane mattress) and is off-grid friendly with battery powered lights. But, she also works well on-grid and plugs into campsites for full functionality.
When plugged in she cools easily with the use of a fan and heats quickly with a tiny, round, freestanding, space heater.
She boasts 56 sq feet of under-bed storage and can easily haul enough camping gear to accommodate her occupant’s enjoyment of both the convenience of teardrop camping and the primitive nature of tent camping.
Yes. I can do this. I can do anything I set my mind to.
It may not be perfect, (nor am I) and everyone may not like it, (or me) and that’s totally OK.
