1951 Peerless Travel Trailer - A Real Project

1951 Peerless Travel Trailer in shed
Today I went about 15 miles west of town to see a camper - a 1951 Peerless Travel Trailer. I fancy finding an antique and fixing it up for the road. This camper is neat - but the repair is way beyond my pay grade. The last time it was on the road was 1971 - the year Lulu and I eloped to Miami. The old rusty license plate is still on the back.

The camper is in a shed - so it has been kept pretty dry. The inside it lines with birch wood. It has 4 tiny rooms - bedroom - bathroom - kitchen - living room. I did not make an offer on it - but someone could make this nice with some carpentry skills. The body is aluminum was several coats of paint on it.

Thesis what it could look like
This is what the bedroom looks like now.
The bathroom has a toilet - sink - shower.
The kitchen is in the middle.
Two entrances - bedroom - living room.

It has 4 wheels.
This is the living room.
It still has the 1971 license plate on it. 
This is an example of a cleaned up Peerless.
It could have a very open living area.
The open floor plan.

Fredericksburg VA - Halfway Between Washington and Richmond

We took a horse carriage tour of downtown
on Lulu's birthday. 
This historic building was being restored.

Last week on the away home form Pennsylvania - Lulu and I visited Fredericksburg VA. We have zoomed by it so many time on I-95 - we just had to make an overnight stop. If a couple of grandparents had grandkids in Washington and Richmond - this would be a perfect place to live. 

It is about 53 miles to Richmond south and 47 miles to Washington north from this quaint little civil war town. There was a battle here and it is also the home of Mary Washington - the mother of the father of our country. She lived here until her death. The local college - University of Mary Washington - is aimed after her. My co-teacher Joyce Reichard went to college here. She was a true southern belle. 

Fredericksburg has a strong German influence. In the train station downtown - there is a pub and biergarten. There are several trains daily going to Washington and Richmond. Daily you can catch Amtrak to Disneyworld and Florida. 

We had lunch at this drug store counter.
Carolina Street in Fredericksburg.

This shirt reminded me of the United Mine Workers.
