Addictive: Trolling for Vintage Trailers
No one warns you about this at the start of your infatuation with vintage camping vehicles, but... you will become addicted to spotting them. Even become a U-turn expert, in no matter what you're driving at the time.
Maybe even to the point of turning into the Girl Camper version of a trespasser and a stalker.
This could be an area of obsession that needs a 12-step program. Because it is, without question, addictive.
If you're of the rescuer persuasion, these puppies can be more dangerous to be around than an abandoned batch of real puppies. Yes, it is actually possible to feel sorry for an inanimate object.
In advanced stages, you will find yourself bringing home a trailer you just could not pass up. Exhibit A above: Barbie, the Girlfriend Trailer, spotted for sale in the middle of nowhere and purchased with "just in case" trailer trolling cash.
Could we cure this addiction with group therapy? Doubtful--because camping with the girls is group therapy, and all it does is feed it!
(So...anybody see anything interesting out there today in Trolling Land? Some ad links to post, perhaps, for a little dreamin'?)
