daydreaming about ….. a vintage camper park

Today I returned home from a family reunion that was held up in northern New Hampshire.  I had a really good time but I can’t say I loved the place we stayed. . It was very …. ski lodge-y — overbuilt and over decorated.   It got me to daydreaming about creating a place to hold family reunions that would be aesthetically pleasing to my eye.  I started daydreaming out loud with my husband about running a yurt camp.  He came up with an even better idea.  He suggested we make a little village of vintage campers.   I realize this has been done before.  The images above are from El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas.  I absolutely love the look of this place and hope that I will be able to visit it one day.  I would love to recreate something this cool on Old Post Road in Kittery, Maine.  We could buy up vintage campers that don’t run anymore.  We could add porches,  outdoor showers, a clothes line and  vintage or up-cycled outdoor furniture.  It would need a common area with a grill for family gatherings.  It would be simple and clean and lovely.  Imagine the D.I.Y weddings you could hold at a place like this.

My uncle has a saying — “You know how to create a million dollar business?” — Start with two million.

I need two million. xo

    You made my husband’s day!!! He has owned multiple vintage campers, some we like, some too smelly… There is another awesome vintage camper park in AZ, specializing in Airstreams, the creme de la creme of vintage campers. Btw the way we are in Camden ME right now and I saw your post about Belfast, 2 towns up the Bay. We really must get together for tea sometime since we seem to be exisiting in some kinds of parallel worlds. Jennifer from Wear House
