In the 70s, my family and I traveled the East Coast in a Prowler travel trailer. I remember how everything had it’s place securely inside, and how it became our home when we went on our family adventures. From those first days, I was hooked on recreation vehicles. I also remember the first time I registered my love for Airstreams. I was driving down the road and came up behind an aluminum beauty in all its gleaming glory. I said “I have to have an Airstream.” And so it began.
In 2014 I purchased a ’75 Airstream Trade Wind and began renovations. I did most of the work myself, with a few friends and family helping out. I’ve learned much! You can see some of the progression to the Garden Caravan on Instagram. And early work on Making the Garden Caravan, my tumblr.
The Garden Caravan is devoted to curating well-designed, well-loved, hand-crafted goods. Goods are sometimes literally green — plants, airplants, succulents; and metaphorically green — vintage, repurposed, small footprint.
