One More Trailer Post: "2002 Prowler" and "1999 Komfort"

This is the last in my mini-series of travel trailer posts.  At least now they are all in one spot!

Okay, now I know that I have shown you the picture above a couple of weeks ago.  We have just gotten the above trailer from my MIL.  Though it is 9-years-old, it has been barely used, and still has that "new smell".  We used it for the first time when we went camping up The McKenzie River, at Holiday Farms RV Resort, Rainbow OR.    

I know that some of you are like me, and enjoy seeing what is inside of travel trailers, and how they are all set up differently.  This one is 29' long, and we could easily live in it with the dogs, if we had a house for all the rest of our stuff!

This picture is of when you walk through the front door.  The carpeting is off-white, so we have covered up as much of it as we can.  This rug covers a heater vent, so I have to scoot it over when we turn the heat on.

A real living room!

This chair came with it, but I added the pillow.  
I love to bring in things to make it feel comfy and homey.

We bought this coffee table at a garage sale for $5.00.  What a score; it is solid maple and is just the right size.  The coffee table is easy for me to lift and maneuver onto the bed when we have to pull the slide-out in for driving.

A bit of decoration and live plants make me happy.  
My sister Julie hand-painted these pots.

Cary went down to the Pilot Truck Stop in Chemult and bought this little T.V./DVD player.  What is neat about it is that you can plug it into a cigarette lighter or, in this trailer, use if off of the regular battery if you don't have any electricity.  That means, if we are camping out in the woods, we can watch a movie without having to plug in the generator.

I brought in the little chair that my SIL gave me last month, and put my favorite M.E. throw on it.  It fits perfectly to scale, just like the coffee table and swivel chair.  There is the dining area also, that turns into a bed.  (The couch slides down into a bed too.)

Lighting is so very important to me.  There is lots of lighting built-in lighting throughout this trailer, but I prefer lamps from home for reading, crafting, or playing games.  Outside the window is our little RV yard, where the vintage Shasta is.

Here is the kitchen area, and a view of the entry.  We have two very nice sinks, a great stove and fridge/freezer.  In the background are the t.v.'s.  The big one has a VCR built in, though it is a regular t.v. which requires electricity or a generator to use.

Here is our bedroom.  All homey with regular bedding from home.  The quilt came with the trailer ... Darlene might want it back when she sees this!  I love it though.  The bed was pretty comfortable, but I added a memory foam mattress topping to it.

Last but not least, here is the bathroom.  Sorry that the picture is a little blurry. It seems as if my "regular" setting is doing that right now.  Anyway, there is a good sized shower, and lots of storage.  I appreciate the counter-top space, the skylight and the two big mirrors very much.

That concludes this tour.

If you would like to see how our 1999 Komfort travel trailer looked last year, before I took everything out of it, please click on "OUR FORT" to check out last summer's post about it.  We are now using it as a security trailer down at work.  It is smaller without a slide-out, but we both love that little trailer, and have had a blast in it over the years.

Here are two more related posts (both are underneath this one, unless you just happened to land on this post through a search engine inquiry).

Wow, home away from home.

We spent 6 months out of every year since 2002 in our 30 ft RV and loved it. We sold it last year and got a Park Model in a retirement park in Florida so we just go there each winter. That is easier at our age but we did enjoy being on the road. Have fun.

I have gone to a lot of RV shows and can only say that the trailers like yours have tons more room than the motor homes do.
That is really nice. Enjoy.

Gosh, it looks like home. When I was younger, my parents had a travel trailer and we would traipse about--them and my 4 sibilings--in a relatively small trailer. It was crowded for the seven of us, but mighty cozy. I loved it. We had some great times.

Tossing It Out

Lynn, it is! Right now we just have it set up in the driveway and go sit in it once in a while.

Donnie, how fun! I guess it is easier the way that you have things set up now though. I sure would hate to have to hook it to the trailer hitch myself though ... and after all this time I haven't educated myself on how the propane and septic work.

Patti, they do have a lot of room. I think that the 5th wheels with slides have tons of room, but they are even more of a hassle to hook up.

Arlee; we used to camp in tents all the time. My grandparents had a small trailer and then a camper; so it was nice when we went with them.

Thanks so much, everybody, for stopping by to say hi!
