If you have been following along, you know that for April and May the spouse and I are serving as volunteers for the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department. This month we are park hosts at Sunset Bay State Park on the beautiful Oregon coast outside Coos Bay. I thought I would take you on a short tour of our home away from home, our Airstream Silver Cloud trailer.
We named our trailer Stanley. You can read about how he got his name here. The trailer is 26 feet long, shiny and efficient. We love it! Here's Stanley tucked into our site at Sunset Bay State Park.
When you step in the door you are in our dining/living room. The windows all around give us a great view of the outside. The table makes in to an extra bed and there is a trundle bed that pulls out of the sofa on the front left. That's were the granddaughters will sleep when they come this summer for Nana Camp.
If you are sitting at the table and look toward the back of the trailer you see the kitchen. We have a gas oven and stove, refrigerator and freezer, and a microwave. No dishwasher, but we make do!
The sink in on the right side of the hall and the fridge on the other. The door to the bathroom is just past the fridge.
Looking down the hall you can see the bedroom at the rear of the trailer. The bathroom door is to the right and the shower on the left. There are pocket doors that can be pulled to isolate the bathroom area from the kitchen and back bedroom. That's handy if we have a guest.
The shower is full size...I can wash my hair with elbows extended and there's even a bench seat.
How cute is this bathroom? It's a real porcelain toilet! There's room to stand and extend your arms with the door closed.
The bedroom is at the rear of the trailer. It has a queen sized bed and we have windows that go all around the bed. When we park in a secluded area we can leave the curtains open for a lovely view.
Everything in this trailer is efficient. No space is wasted. We have tried hard not to fill it to capacity. There is a lot of stuff that we just don't need to bring with us when we are on the road. We enjoy living without all the clutter that seems to fill our regular life. On the other hand, I know we will relish the personal space when we get home in June.
Hope you enjoyed the tour of our little home away from home.
