Welcome! This is an ongoing blog about our journey as owners of a vintage coach camping trailer.

Our journey first started with a 1973 Avion, 28 foot LaGrande model. But in April 2020 we purchased a 1987 Avion 32S model which features a front kitchen, mid coach salon, side bath and rear bedroom with two twin beds. This is THE ultimate floor plan and size of Avion in our opinion- since we plan to live full time on our 32S beginning in 2023. We plan to travel the USA and become somewhat of “snowbirds” since we have children and grandchildren in AZ and VT.
OUR SECOND CHAPTER….
Below is a photo of our 1987 32S. We are the fourth owners (again!). This coach has been very well taken care of and the previous owner to us did a lot of the upgrades we would have planned to do! The coach was originally sold and used in Florida until 8 years ago. These are quite rare because this floor plan strangely enough was only manufactured for a limited number of years by the Avion Corporation.
OUR FIRST CHAPTER…..
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.
