Vintage Stove dial??

Ok I am now trying to find a dial for our stove, it is so hard. Everyone said just google it ...Yeah right...It is a Ward stove/oven and there is nothing out there about those ovens....Help...If anyone knows where I can get one I would love you forever!! I have been so amazed at how hard it is to find thing for our little trailer. Kelly is getting wood today to start on his part...I can't wait. If I didn't want to take our trailer on vacation I'd take vacation to work on her.
Stop by anytime,
Debbie

Bring Home Our Vintage Trailer!

We are off to get the trailer! I am so excited I can't stand it! But it is about 2 1/2 hours away so we decided to make a day of it! It was a nice ride and we got to see areas of Utah we have never seen . We might have to back up that way when we got the trailer all fixed up!
He's smiling now but we'll see after we get there.
It took us along time but their directions were great!
And it was a nice drive!


Here we are loading it up! It is the cutest trailer!

They have horses and sheep... What a fun place to live!


The view from the drive way!


We stopped at "Big O" to get new tires to make it home!

The Guys were so nice to help since we got their right at closing time!
Thanks Guys!





This will be much safer to get it home and she needed them anyway!

We stopped at Jack's property to say hi and check out she pulls! And she did great! These are the before pictures!
This is where the bed goes!

Isn't the kitchen cute! I am so excited! We need to find a new knob and I hope that's not hard....
And my husband is the best with wood! So I can't wait!


Dinette!

This is a close up of the vinyl cushions. They are made like car seats.

I am going to try to save the cushions ...just cover them with something else to try and protect the cute vinyl.

The sink and counter is made from aluminum.

The floor is carpet ...and that will be one of the first things to go. we haven't decide if it will be hard wood, vinyl, or tile....but it will be cute!
Inside the ice box....

Oven/Stove.....


Inside oven...

Cupboard on side of oven....

The splash board is aluminum and above the shelf is formica.


Air vent on ceiling......

These are the curtains that were in it. They remind me of dish towels...


Back wall where bed goes....

Door... I think they taped the bag to the window to keep the sun out...

The bumper pull....

Darcey and Bethany help Jax out to see whats going on.....

Made It!! Now all the fun begins....Kelly will have so much to do and I will have so much shopping and quilting to get done. This is going to be so fun. We went to the trailer store and looked around and there is so much to see.

1947 Vintage!

This is going to be our Heirloom Inn! This 1947 Kit Companion trailer may not look like much now but it is going to be so cute!! My Husband and I decided to start camping after 35 years of marriage and what better way to begin than by restoring a vintage trailer! And all the vintage trailers I looked at on the internet have names and I had to have a name before we started!

This is an inside picture before we started! Look how cute the stove is. And I love the counter tops. I am thinking we should do this in white, black and red. I have the best Husband he just keeps saying "Whatever you want". No wonder hes lasted so long! Hahahaha!
