Interior decoration - Vintage trailer style
The trailer is not ready for its closeup yet but soon...
Interior decoration is not just for homes
Vintage Trailer Folks like to decorate their trailers. Some of them take it to an extreme but at the Spamboree rallies held in Oceanside, there was a contest for the best decorated trailer. We actually won one year with our western theme "The Dalton Gang". Our trailer is a Dalton and I have the trophy to prove it.
The pictures shown here are of the lobster theme. This was the most fun because the search for all things "lobster" took on a life of its own. It started after our trip to Maine and got completely out of control.
Ready for viewing
Don't you just love decorated trailers?
Lobster flag and buoy
Everyone needs a lobster flag and the buoy is used to identify lobster traps. Every fisherman has his own colors which makes them identifiable. There is real science in lobster fishing.
The door is open
At any trailer rally, if the door is open, it says "come on in". Check out my interior decoration.
Lobster on stove
Cooking lobster can be tricky. This one just didn't want to be eaten so was given a perch to greet visitors. This was a gift from a friend who thought I need a lobster for the pot. The covered dish to the left of the lobster was an expensive piece and I had to save up to get it.
These are great when doing a theme because they can just go anywhere.
Non-scientific poll, just for fun.
If you had a vintage trailer, would you decorate it?
The lobster dishes have a place in my kitchen. The serving dishes were a great eBay find and are stored to make sure they are not broken. The salt and pepper shakers are just fun. The glasses have lobsters that wrap around and the lobster teapot has a home with my teapot collection.
Potholders and clock
The lobster potholders are very handy and every trailer needs a lobster clock. The curtains were thrown together at the last moment but curtains are necessary for a bit of privacy. I don't have a picture of the bedding with the lobsters. I wonder why I didn't take one?
We didn't have a dog when these photos were taken
Decorating the trailer is fun but how much more fun would it be if we decorated the dog? Oni is a 70 shepherd Shar-Pei and would look adorable as a lobster. The dog model is cute but our dog would be so much cuter.
Check out this decorated trailer
This is Bob and Cindy's trailer. It's not really visible because the palm trees and the other decorations tend to obscure the trailer itself. I can say for certain that the interior is every bit as decorated as the exterior. The best part of this decoration is the small trailer in front. It is a 1950s saleman's trailer that was originally pulled like a wagon to various dealers. Inside and out, this little trailer is decorated the same as the big trailer. Guess who won the trophy this year?.
