Welcome! This is an ongoing blog about our journey as owners of a vintage coach camping trailer.
We purchased a 1973 Avion LaGrande model “luxury travel coach ” in September 2016. We are the fourth owners of this vintage trailer. The rig is 28′ total feet long including the awesome vintage bumper, tongue and hitch. Our actual living space is 8′ wide by approx. 24 feet long! We currently enjoy long weekend camping and a few extended trips each year but have a plan to go “full time” and live in our Pewter Palace when we semi-retire (we plan to do Workamping around the USA!).
This blog will chronicle our story, her layout and our personal touches and required maintenance to ensure another four decades of camping heritage…as well as of course, our travel journeys with The Pewter Palace herself. We have included separate categories of pages for various projects to be easier to find topics and for us to keep things somewhat organized by chronological date. Hope you enjoy our blog. Please let us know!
We hope you enjoy our blog! Please follow us and our journeys!
