August 2013 Camping Trip

Just spent 9 nights at our favorite campground, Saugeen Springs RV Park, situated along the Saugeen River near Hanover, Ontario.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.  Our little heater was put to good use during the cooler nights, while the days remained perfectly suited to swimming, fishing, and campfires.

Setup on our favorite site - C6:


A messy, but functional galley.  You can see the clothes line in action.

I say this is "cleaned up".  My wife says this is "staged" for curious visitors.
 

 

Under bunk storage, doing a good job:

 Another view of the campsite:

Picnic table and private beach (could you ask for anything more?):

A view down river from our site:


 Father and daughter fishing for Chub.  We caught over 20 of them. 

A leisurely start to our day.  Fruit Loops by the campfire.

  1. Where did you get your marine vinyl and how wide is it? Your blog and trailer are great, thanks for sharing

  2. Hi Jackson. Thanks for your kind comment. I picked up the marine vinyl at Lens Mills in Kitchener, Ontario. I believe the vinyl came off the roll at approx. 5 feet wide, which was too narrow for my trailer. To remedy this, we sewed two pieces together with the seam running across the width of the trailer. To ensure the seam is water tight, I run a fresh bead of silicone along it each spring which seems to do the trick.

  3. Did you use a set of plans for this or did you make your own? Could I buy a copy of the plans from you if you have them? Do you have any pics or video of the assembly? Looks small and cool.

    1. Hi Rick. Sorry for the late reply. I don't have any blueprints for the trailer other than those posted earlier in my blog. All assembly pics are also included in this blog. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. What do you use as a heater?

    1. It was just a small space heater, which I mounted under the top bunk.

  5. Hi. Can you please tell us more about the windows that you used on the ceiling? Did you make them yourself? How did you install it? Is it one piece? I LOVE that you can star gaze out from within. Do those windows open? Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi there. Sorry for the late reply. The ceiling is made out of standard window screening. I bought it in one large role from the hardware store, rolled it out, and used a staple gun to secure it to the trailer. The side windows all open as well. :)

  7. Working on mine now and wanting to do screen roof. Do you do any cold weather camping and if so what is your solution if any for insulation of screen areas.

    1. Hi James. The coldest it's been when I've gone camping is approx. 8 degrees Celsius. (Damn cold without a heater.) With the heater running, the camper was actually quite warm (almost too warm). I don't use any insulation in the screened areas, but have seen others use styrofoam for that.
