Vardo – A couple of years later

Thought I had posted pictures of the vardo/camper after I got it finished enough to use but after looking around doesn’t look like I did.  So went out this afternoon and took a few.

This first one is just a shot from the side.  Canvas wall covering is holding up well.

And a shot from the front or hitch end.  Am going to redo this side and put canvas over the wood.  Battens are screwed on so shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

The back or door side.  Still haven’t replaced the old camper door.  Just another of those round tuits…

The bed in it’s daytime or single occupancy mode. Note the pullout table under the center.

And here it is with the frame pulled out.  There are matching slats under the other side. 1×2’s with about a quarter inch left between them and screwed down on each end.  Works quite well.

The table pulled out but leg not dropped down.

And a shot of the leg still in storage position.  Door latches used to keep it up as well as to lock it to the floor if the rug wasn’t down.

Seat for the table or just chilling on the side over the wheel well. And the 2×4 that the movable part of the bed frame slides on. Seemed the simplest solution at the time and has worked out rather well.

Seat open showing storage area within.  I’ve got assorted tools stored in this one.  The one on the other side has food stuff and extra paper products.

Food, water, and assorted stuff storage and work area. Microwave for times we are camping with power.

Other side work/cooking area with bucket storage underneath. One is the toilet for those times when we are boon-docking and the other holds kerosene and lanterns to keep the odor down.

Paper towel and spice/seasoning holder with high tech hold down. 😉

And that’s pretty much it. We have used it several times over the last couple of years and it has worked out pretty good.  Going to add additional leaves to the springs and better tires asap.  Looking at putting in an AC too for summer camping. Will update as I get er done.

Till later,
Dave
