On Sunday, my sweet hubby and I made the trip to go pick up my trailer! If you missed part 1 of my new series where I explain WHY IN THE WORLD I bought a vintage trailer, you can read that here.
This is my excited face when I realized she was actually FOLLOWING ME HOME!! She wanted to be mine just as much as I wanted her! Woot!
(Insert my sweet hubby’s unexcited face here. But I’ll just leave that up to your imagination, cause he really is a long suffering man who doesn’t need his unexcited face splashed all over the Interwebs!)
First I need to disclose that both my sweet hubby and myself are complete novices in the hitching and unhitching a trailer concept. Seems like it should be straightforward, but no. And unhitching the trailer is even harder than hitching it, BTW! It’s actually faster to take the entire hitch off of the truck, it turns out. Just so you know for next time.
But the REALLY hard part is directing the driver of the truck as to how to back the trailer up into your driveway!! As in YOUR OWN driveway and NOT the neighbor’s yard. Who knew that when you wanted the back of the trailer to go right you have to turn the wheels of the truck left??
Anyway, after some minor setbacks and a trip from Maryland, through Pennsylvania, and back to Delaware, she is here.
And you know that feeling of when you buy furniture from a furniture store and you think that the furniture is going to be a great fit while you’re in the store, but then when you get it home IT SEEMS SO BIG!!! Well, that is how I feel about the trailer now that it is sitting a little crookedly in my driveway. Same trailer as before, I just have to stand a little closer to take the picture if I want to stand in my own yard.
I’m losing daylight and also battery power in my phone, so I will take BEFORE pictures of the inside of the trailer tomorrow…stay tuned.
