After a long love affair with tent camping we bought our first trailer in 1999. I wanted one BAD and it had to be vintage. I had my sights on joining the "Sisters on the Fly" a group of women who camp and fish together across the continent so vintage funk was my vision. Billy on the other hand was dead set against it. During a particularly difficult and uncomfortable night camping with the kids at Carlsbad State Beach I thought it the perfect opportunity to bring up, once again how wonderful it would be to have a little trailer of our own and BAM he didn't respond with the usual scrunched up face (which means no way no how) and I pulled out the local classifieds.
Wouldn't you know it right there was an ad for the future Marmalade and right down the road a piece besides. We pulled her up at our campsite that very same night and, well the rest is history.
