Ours was a 1983 Prowler by Fleetwood travel trailer, orange-and-white, 31-feet long, 28-feet of living space when you subtracted the length of the hitch/propane tanks. It was similar to the one pictured above but longer and with two doors.
Welcome to my home of (roughly) eight years.
I don't talk often here about the travel trailer days of my growing up years but yes, I was raised in a trailer with six siblings, a dog and two parents.
You have a lot of questions, don't you?
Some of my friends have questions about my life in a travel trailer and one of them is: exactly how long is 28-feet of space? I can't even imagine it.
My friend Greg and his wife Kristin asked me one night and because a long tape measure was handy, Greg measured it:
I love this picture for the following reasons:
1) my friends love me enough to actually care about measuring off 28' in their kitchen to figure me out more.
2) I love that kitchen. Lots of good memories in that kitchen.
I love my life.
And that includes the past, the present and the future.
