Journey was our beloved 1956 Aloha trailer! She was our big summer project of 2013 and she followed behind our Trailblazer across the country to her new Ohio home.  We put a lot of TLC into her! Unfortunately we had to part ways with our sweet little Journey trailer. We sold her in January of 2017 to a lovely couple who live in central Nebraska. We didn’t want to sell her, but keeping her just didn’t seem practical. She wasn’t getting used and we believe things like camping trailers (especially cute ones!) should be cared for and used to make lots of memories. Although we no longer own her, the memories we made fixing her up and camping with her will be forever cherished in our hearts.

You can still read all about the fixing up process on this page 🙂

It all began here.
