The Jolly Trolly Adventure Continues...

Jolly Allotment On The Road

The Jolly Trolly Adventure Continues...

I've made some really great progress with my vintage trailer in the last couple of weeks. Its been so satisfying I can't believe how much fun I've had demolishing it. Most of the wood was rotten and the framework needs some love and care so I've removed all the bolts with an angle grinder so I could remove the wood to reveal the metal work. The floor needs to be replaced so I've pulled that up too. Removed the interior partition and set it aside to find a use for it later. She is a huge trailer and looks so different with the partition removed. I am growing ever fonder of her, she has such a good vibe! It's been a great way to kick start the new year. I bought the trailer last February and its been sitting in a field waiting for some love and attention so it's great to finally get started. 

I've enlisted some help from master mechanic Dave so I actually got the first proper inspection of the mechanics and the roof.  Although the brakes and electrics need replacing there really isn't a lot of rust on the framework and the wheels and the roof are sound, so my impulse purchase was a good one - phew! 

We are making steady progress in-between work commitments, it's so exciting every day I get to work on her seeing the small changes. I can't wait to get her on the road, it's hard work but I'll get there!

I'd be grateful for your help. Please check out what my 'Jolly Trolly' is all about in this video, read more on my 'on the move page'.

Thank you for reading the Jolly Journal - I really appreciate your interest and hope it's of value to you. I am dyslexic and for years this stopped me writing because of the fear of getting it wrong. Now I am embracing my fear so I appreciate your understanding if you see a mistake I have missed. Thank you! - Polly x
