Vardo - The Bones

When getting started on any project a good foundation is critical.  These are the bones of our vardo.

Just as many of our other projects we decided to go the recycle/re-purpose route with the vardo wagon. The bones of the wagon is the frame from an old RV trailer.  The previous owner a dear friend of ours who passed away, modified it from the rv trailer and used it to haul his race car back and forth to the track.

The first thing we had to do was get it home.  So we went over on a chilly morning in February to pick it up.  One of the tires was completely blown out and the other three were in horrible shape.  We took the tires off and went to a local shop to have some tires put on that would at least get us home.

The frame was a bit rusty and in need of a repaint.

Eli got to work immediately getting measurements for the planning phase of the project.
