We blogged about Porter the other day and posted pics of the outside, so today we’ll show you the interior. We haven’t done anything on the inside of Porter, those ugly green curtains are still hangin’ and not a single Route 66 decoration has been bought, cuz while we have big ideas…have I mentioned that we’re on a very tight budget/set income here? Even so, we’ve got a roof over our heads, a decent running vehicle, and aren’t starving. We even manage to feed our cat and dog and also enjoy a 1/2 price Sonic milkshake now and then…but boy are we gonna be sad when that summer shake special ends!
So anyhoo, the interior pics we’re posting today were mostly taken before we moved in…we’re choosing to not highlight all our organized clutter, but perhaps one day we’ll have something to show off. Until then, it’s all good in the trailerhood! Let the slideshow begin…
Up first, we present to you Porter’s floor plan, this will allow you to put the other pics into perspective:
Let’s start with the bedroom, shall we? Yeah, that’d be the blue one…who does that?! And please, do take note of the luxurious paper-thin draperies.Head of the bed…
…and if there’s a head, there’s gotta be a foot.
As we move on to the dining/living/sometimes bedroom area, remember to look away from those infamous green curtains to avoid retinal damage!
Magic trick…wait for it…the dinette becomes a bed!
I must mention that the above pic was def taken before we moved in, we don’t even own a hitch and Bob’s housekeeping is much better than that dirty floor.
Before we leave this area we’ve got to point out the spacious entertainment center across from the dinette, look for it labeled on the diagram to the right of the entry door.
We prefer to call it our junk corner.
Now if you’ll turn 90° to your right, then take 3 steps, you’ll find yourself in the kitchen. This is Bob’s favorite “room” in the joint, he’s a great cook!
Double sink, high faucet, and a paper plate holder attached under the overhead cabinet (can you spot it above the left sink?)…what more could you ask for?! Bob took the paper towel holder down though, he said it was in his way.
Also, a microwave, 3-burner stove (underneath the cloth covered cutting board), oven, and a plenty big for us fridge with separate freezer to the right of the stove.
Across from the stove is a decent sized closet that we use as a food pantry and misc items storage area.
Next to the closet, across from the fridge, and partially behind the bathroom, are the bunkbeds. Ginger sleeps on the bottom bunk and we use the top bunk for storage.
The only room left on our tour is the privy. For more info on that click here , but this is what it looks like.
This (⬆) is one of the pics taken before we moved in…we don’t use the bathroom sink to store ugly green curtains!
Apologies for the overuse of “next to,” “across from,” “to the right of,” etc, but when talking about Porter there is no “down the hall, first door on your left” or “just around the corner,” type descriptions. We downsized before making the move to fulltime camper trailer living, so between the indoor cabinets and cubby holes, outdoor “basement” and cargo rack, and our mini-van, we’ve found a place for all our belongings.
All silliness aside (I can’t seem to help myself), we love Porter and we love all our campsite blog visitors. Life is good, we are blessed!
