I mentioned earlier that my husband and I are moving to Vermont. We leave mid-week to start the cross country trip in our little Tab Trailer. With seven cats. It should be interesting. I shared a tour of our little trailer on instagram but not here so in advance of our departure I will show you how cute it is. The blog may not post daily during the trip whether due to internet access or time constraints. I do have some book reviews that will be posting but obviously I won’t have a kitchen to work in to be coming up with new recipes. I do hope to post about the trip but please bear with me as this big move takes place. If nothing else I should be able to do Insta posts so be sure to follow me on Instagram.
Traveling in a Tab Trailer
We haven’t really taken this little trailer on a trip yet – we have only brought it home from the dealer. The beauty of the Tab Trailer is that it is light and you don’t need a heavy vehicle to pull it. Our Toyota Tacoma is capable so we didn’t have to buy a truck which was nice. The downside is you have to be careful as to how much weight you carry overall. This is not a problem if you are going camping for a weekend but when you are going cross country with 7 cats and two humans the weight starts to add up.
The Inside Tour
The inside is very well laid out for such a tiny trailer and there is a lot of storage for the size of the unit. You can store things under all of the seats and there are little cabinets above. Table folds down and the cushions shuffle to make the bed.
There is a small refrigerator which holds more than I thought it would. I am also pleased with how much cabinet space there is for a trailer of this size. Our trip cross country is going to take about a week and we should be able to make it with one stop at a food store along the way. That really isn’t bad when you think about it.
There is a small sink and a two burner stove so I won’t be cooking gourmet but it’s enough to feed us as we travel. I have cooked a chicken and packed several jars of my home canned soup As I noted, it won’t be fancy but it will be enough to keep our stomachs filled.
The cats will have their kibble and food just like normal. It will just be a little erm, close in there. I think if nothing else it’s going to be an interesting trip.
I will most certainly miss Montana and the glorious views I have out the windows of the yurt. We have just decided that as we get older we need to be in a place that is a little more urban for lack of a better word. Not that we are moving to a big city by any stretch of the imagination. We are just very rural here and if anything happened that my husband couldn’t drive we would be stuck since I can’t drive due to my vision.
In addition we will be closer to my family as they are in New Jersey. So we have a big adventure ahead. First the big drive across the country in the tiny Tab trailer then renovating the new house. It’s going to be a very busy few months to say the least. Once we get get settled in Vermont the blog will post daily but for the next week or two if I miss a day here or there please forgive me.
