Betina: You've come a long way, baby

When we first got Betina, she was sure looking her age. That said, she was in pretty great shape for being over 40 years old (aside from a slight issue with part of her frame). 

On the exterior, we ripped off the blue stripe, replaced the old air conditioner and gave her a slick new polish.

On the inside, we ripped her guts out. If only that "wood" were real, maybe we would have left it in place. But overall we had to make the layout work for our family. In the original trailer, the bathroom was at the back (why?!) with a nice huge window right in the middle. The bed was on the side and folded out from a couch (you can kind of see this on the left in the picture below). We wanted to have two distinct areas for hanging out/ eating/ loving and for sleep.

I've got some more pictures and a video tour to come! Be sure to follow us @rubberroadabode on Instagram to see what we're up to (and for some more trailer porn, as we call it).
