A Proper Introduction

 If you follow me via Facebook or Instagram, chances are, you have already "met" Patty. But for the sake of recording this journey in an easy-to-access format for future reference, I'd like to back up a bit on our vintage camper renovation journey, and do a bonafide before post!

Here is how she looked when she was delivered to our home:

 Yes, we had our rose colored potential glasses on when we bought her! :-) Believe it or not, of all the Hilanders we looked at on our journey, this one was in the best shape. The previous owners were using her for storage, and we had to really dig through piles of stuff to even find the bones. But we liked what we saw, and thought we were up to tackling the required renos with some help from our skilled friends, so we held our breath, and jumped into the vintage camper world with both feet!

So meet Patty:

A 1966 Serro Scotty Sportman Hilander 13' Camper

 Much more of her story to come...


  1. I can't wait to see Patty's magical transformation!

  2. Looking forward to hearing more about Patty (and seeing the transformation!)


Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts. They make my day!
