Camping 1955

This is the trailer we had for many years of weekend and weeklong camping trips. As mentioned in the previous photo, my aunt and uncle had the same trailer and we often met at some campground or national park.
A couple of years later, Dad got a newer (’56) Buick that had the same 2-tone design as the trailer and had the trailer painted to match the car. It was a sight to behold. Then, in 1961, my parents sold the trailer so we could get new carpets in the bedrooms. An odd trade-up….(candyruth)
