We were so excited when the day finally arrived to pick up our new camper trailer. After months of comparing, choosing and waiting we rocked up at the warehouse, hooked up the trailer…. and… didn’t drive off. Nope, in our typical style something always has to go wrong and on this occasion it was faulty wiring to the trailer plug in the car. Oh man!
Thankfully hubby is pretty resourceful and had it repaired quite quickly (and amazingly had all the tools and wires in the car already, sweet!) and we backed up for take 2… success, we have lights working. And with that, we pointed our noses towards the family farm and had a lovely weekend relaxing with family and excitedly camping out. As awesome as that was, it’s not really camping when you are metres away from a house with a kitchen, bathroom…etc…
What we really needed was to take her away for real to see how camping with her was. Well I can tell you, it’s pretty marvellous. I’m pretty sure we now fall in the glamping catergory, what with a queen sized bed, lounge area, fully plumbed kitchen with gas stove and power available at the flick of a switch. Talk about easy and comfortable!
