On the road again! But this time we have got the new shiny Airstream pulling along behind us. This is our first trip in the Airstream and we are all so excited to go somewhere new and start living in our new little home on wheels! I know you all have a lot of questions, so I’ve got my hotspot on my phone and I am gathering all the things Airstream edition, because you all love it as much as I do!
All of us know how terrible it feels to go on vacation and realize you don’t have what you need. Well that feeling is only amplified when you are camping. There are SO MANY things to pack and prepare for. I hate when someone in my family needs something and I can see exactly where it is in my house but i don’t have it when I need it. So I did my very best to think of anything we could possibly need so that Trailer Swift feels as much like home as possible! HA!
It was actually fun to get all the supplies and organize everything in the new space. I loved buying supplies and decorations that matched the colors of the gorgeous interior. We got the 2018 Airstream Globetrotter 27FB TWIN in the Dark Walnut Copenhagen Cream interior. It truly feels that this interior was designed by me which makes it feel so comfortable and homey. Although it is an RV, it is designed to be extremely spacious and have enough storage space for everything you need. They sell the exact same model with a queen bed instead of two twin beds, but for our family of four, the two twin beds were perfect.
I wanted to keep a boho/modern feel when I started decorating. I loved the dark and white interior and of course black and white was the obvious choice for me! Black and white bedding, pillows, appliances, storage bins, and everything else. It just looks so clean, neat and simple, which is exactly what I wanted for this smaller space.
Of course there is also all of the camping prep that I will have to do anytime we take the Airstream out. Making the beds up, getting everyones clothes washed and put in their individual drawers, stocking up on towels and linens, food shopping and meal prepping, double checking all the supplies and appliances and more. It seems like a lot, but I would much rather be prepared for anything than run into a sticky situation.
After everything is packed and double checked, I get to relax and enjoy this new adventure with my family. Lily graduating eighth grade was a bittersweet reminder of how fast my kids are growing up. I was to enjoy this time while it is just the four of us + Jack before the time gets away from us. I am so excited for all the new memories we will make with our gorgeous new Airstream as the perfect backdrop.
