I’m a homeschooling mother of three in Louisville, Kentucky. My oldest daughter was born in 2006, my son in 2010, and my wee daughter in 2013.  I love doing things for myself when I can, making things from scratch when it’s fun, taking family road trips, and spending time with my family and my sweet orange dog.hatsIf you’re visiting my blog because you want to see more about the travel-trailers I have decorated, click here for only those posts.

If you are wondering about my decision to homeschool my children, I talk about it here.

If you are thinking, “I really want a hat like that, will you make me one? I’ll pay you.” The answer is, with all due respect, no, and here’s why.

  1. I love how you renovated your Yellowstone camper! The colors are beautiful and everything looks so great. I was just wondering-how heavy is it to pull? I’m looking at buying a 1967 18′ Yellowstone this weekend and I can’t find out how much it weighs anywhere online. The man I’m buying it from says he pulled it with a 6 cylinder Mazda truck with no problems but that it is a little heavy. If you could please email me and let me know what you pull yours with and how much you think it weighs I would really appreciate it. I want to make sure I can pull it because I really want to buy it! Also, do you ever feel cramped in yours? I have 3 kids and 2 dogs but was thinking it would be enough room.

    • Thank you! I would imagine you’d probably have enough room in an 18-footer. Sleeping arrangements are most important–if you feel like you’ve got a bed for everyone, then you’re set. I think mine weighs about 1800 pounds. I’ve heard the general rule of thumb is about 100 lbs per foot, but the old Yellowstones are rather tall and heavy. So maybe 2000-2400 would be a good guess on an 18 foot? It’s totally a guess, but probably reasonable. You could always get it weighed at a truck stop or recycle center. Hope you love it!!

  2. Hi! I’m so glad I stumbled onto your blog! It looks like we’ve got a lot in common!! I just purchased my first vintage camper a few weeks ago and can’t wait to fix it up!! And I am totally with you on the not showering thing. 😉
