Hitch Up the Trailer

When Mr Pretzel and I decided to put of Hawaii until next winter we started to brainstorm ideas for a mini-moon in the Pacific Northwest.  There is so much beautiful country to be explored right in our backyard.  We toyed with the idea of a camping road trip and got very excited when our eyes landed on this image on the pages of Sunset Magazine.

Ohhhh shiny!  Ummm yes, I want me one of those.  Apparently Mini teardrop trailers scaled down and airstream-esque- are a travel trend for 2010.  These trailers have sleeping accommodations for two and the back hatch opens to make a covered kitchen area for food prep. Bare-bones but more comfortable than a tent, Mr Pretzel and I thought that this would be a great opportunity for adventure and some snuggle time.  Seriously, feast your eyes on this  shiny retro goodness.

How enticing is the idea of camping but with the comfort of a bed?  Usually not too enticing to me- I like old fashioned camping in a tent.  But for our honeymoon I can easily picture snuggling up next to the campfire with Mr Pretzel then retiring back to our “trailer” at bedtime.  The images above are from Vacation in a Can, a teardrop trailer rental and sales outfit.   I quickly checked out their website and was disappointed to find out that they are out of Southern California. Booo…  Mr Pretzel and I won’t be hitching up the trailer anytime soon but we’ve been talking about investing in one after the wedding though.  So my shiny trailer dreams aren’t dead yet- just postponed.

Would you consider a camping adventure for your mini-moon?  Anyone else in love with the retro romance of these teardrop trailers?
