say hello to the newest addition to our little family! after months of saving & months of researching, we finally have a cute little camper for our many adventures!
she's a 1997 13ft shadow cruiser. i had my heart set on a vintage scamp camper, but after considering our needs, we opted for practical over pretty. specifically, we wanted a bathroom & hoped for a full kitchen with ample counter space. this camper also has a little bunk bed, which is perfect for our nephew & any additions to the freeman family in years to come! she can be pulled with our smaller vehicles, which is also a plus!
as you can tell, she's in need of a little love! i am working within our budget & plan to be very mindful of spending. i am keeping all of our receipts & hope to share a breakdown of our remodel costs. to start, i am having the cushions recovered. i hope to paint the interior this summer, too! i can't wait to share the process as it unfolds.
for now, aside from some simple changes in aesthetic, she's in perfect condition & ready to hit the road! we're taking her out on her first maiden voyage this weekend! to the river, we go!
what do you think? do you have a camper? how have you saved money on remodel costs? tips for what to include in our little camper? please share your thoughts!
p.s. she needs a name! we're thinking susie q, the shadow cruiser! what do you think?
