I will blame Drew Barrymore.
Well, back in March, when our fleet consisted of only three vintage campers, I had decided to hold off on doing any more. Be practical. Pay off the debt incurred from starting up this business a year before.
But then I got this call from California. And email. And another call.
I thought it was spam.
Nope. Drew Barrymore's agent called, AGAIN... wanting info on booking one of the three campers for her client... in two days... for her to use when shooting a movie in Manhattan for a few weeks.
Now, you know I was excited.
You KNOW I wanted to say YES!
But..... (lost opportunity?) I didn't.
The campers were in winter storage. Had no heaters. And I wanted her to be comfortable. So I said no. That I would put her on my mailing list.
Guess what. First email blast is going out this week.
I was so excited about her enthusiasm... I went out and bought and restored three more campers.
Hence, the lack of blog postings.
However, it did lead to twice as many bookings as last year.
And, it gave me yet one more excuse for not keeping up with this blog.
So, I pray I don't get anymore calls from California this winter.
I need a chance to recover from the last call.
Go see the newest campers -
the rare '63 Shasta (Campers' Choice), the very old '58 FAN (Tin Can Annie) and the latest, a '71 Beeline (The Bumblebear).
And... gulp.... call.
Oh, and sign up for our email list (lol)
Am working on it... (Sign up HERE. First newsletter going out this week. Promise!)

Both the shots below were taken at the Fonda Fairground last October. I store my campers there in the winter time. Don't Tell Drew.
