I was pacing the sidelines watching ebay and the plotting against the opposition who's ebay name ends and begins with an "l"... who I thought I may have to track down in the event they were to win this bid.
They however were the 49ers, I turned out to be the Ravens... because I won that 1974 Serro Scotty Sportsman travel trailer that I had been obsessing about, fair game.
Now she's ours. Nothing better for a marriage than a joint restoration project. Steve has been accumulating tools over the past few years, one colossal shoe rack (that's love right there), chair repair and many odd jobs later, we begin the ultimate "honey do" list... restoring Bandwagon (she has a name) back to her former glory.
Besides working on this project together, I'm going to enjoy all the adventures yet to be had with the best damn partner in crime there is. Especially the Bandwagon Tour this summer, a cross country trip for 6 weeks taking us from city to city to play music.
She's got potential, she just needs a little facelift to bring her into the 21st century... and some serious wood working skills.
Scotty's are genuine American made history, in the 1950's a recently retired car dealership owner, John Serro, built a travel trailer in his garage, that no one wanted (at first). He continued on and made a smaller teardrop trailer and than another and another... American made in Irwin, PA until a fire burned down the plant in 1997. They later re-opened, but as Scotty concepts and currently make fire safety houses, aka a fire safety mobile obstacle course.

But I digress, this is Bandwagon the ultimate vacation home...to be. We are going to pick her up in Lancaster, PA on Saturday.
