Meet Violet — My Adventure Residence On the Road

Meet Violet!! She is named for my Mummy, who loved to picnic, camp, fish, and dove hunt. RIP Violet Christine Laymance Beaty. I am Jerri Lynne Beaty Molder.

Wow! I am so excited to have found her!
And, yes, you can find a great deal on craigslist if you just carefully weed your way through the SCAMMERS! Shame on them!!

Violet is a 25′ Aerolight bumper-pull travel trailer that is EXACTLY what I invisioned. Double bed in the back. Full bathroom. Self-contained except no generator, which is perfect because then I can put a small one in the back of my pickup and it shouldn’t be so LOUD like the Onan is in the Class C motorhome we have, which will be for sale on craigslist shortly. Full kitchen except for oven, which I don’t need, and which I will compensate for with a toaster oven. Frig and Freezer have separate doors — yay — which means it’s a real freezer and bigger and much more functional than what’s in our motorhome!!

The seller showed me how to hook it up to our pickup — already had a hitch and a towing package on the pickup. I slept there in his father and mother-in-law’s yard, and pulled out in the morning Wednesday. It pulled very easily!!

Note: Hubby has pulled a flatbed trailer with either our mini-excavator or tractor which is over 4000lbs for years. Violet is just a little over 4000lbs.

Readers may or may not understand, but I have to say that Violet is an answer to prayer. I asked my Heavenly Father if it was within His will, to please help me find a small enough, short enough, light enough, travel trailer for between $2500-$3000, and He answered that prayer “yes”. His lovingkindness is amazing, and I hope and pray that I will always bring glory to Him. Jesus died for me, and you, and is my Savior and Lord.

Happy Trails!!
