Welcome to my Blog all about Petunia

Petunia is my 1962 Vintage Kencraft travel trailer, I bought about 1 year ago. I am absolutely head over heals in love with this little gem and I have become obsessed with all things "Vintage". When I bought her, I had no idea that vintage trailers were all the rage at the moment and neither did the people I bought her from. I felt like I had won the lottery. I immediately embarked on a journey to find out any and all information about restoring them and now find myself in the exclusive club that is Vintage trailer owners. I can't wait to share with you my adventures in her and all the treasures I have found to decorate and bling her out and fix her up. I know she needs a paint job desperately (not to mention a few additional things) and I am working out exterior paint design and colors. The tan stripe is not original. I've scrapped some of the paint off and it appears that the original might have been yellow. Not sure if I will go back to that, or paint it pink.. I promised my husband that I wouldn't make her too "girly" but sadly..it's happening. I just can't help myself. So welcome to my blog. I am new to this whole blogging world, so please bear with me. I'm learning as I go. I welcome feedback and input for sure. I look forward to meeting you and making many new blogging, vintage trailer, friends. - Happy Glamping!

Petunia has a Brother!

I found a trailer, exactly like Petunia. I've NEVER found another one identical. It's so fun to see what they have done with him. I say him, because he lookes like a boy.


Here is a photo of him:


  1. Petunia also has a sister in San Jose, CA. Her name is Gypsy Rose Leigh. I spotted the Napa Valley trailer right after I got mine and that has been my inspiration so far. Now yours is, too :-) Mine is an extremely rough one that was used to settle a debt with a local bar owner. It sat behind the bar until the owner died. I'm bookmarking your blog so I can see what you're up to! There's a man who sells a CD of old trailer photos (Mr. Eichmuller?) and one is a B/W photo of a Kencraft paint job. It is unique. Good luck & have fun - mine's a 5-year project! Leigh

  2. just purchased a 1958 kencraft and hoping to connect with fellow owners. contact me via email: bccmisty@hotmail.com
