The story of how Burst Photo Booths came to be, from purchasing the trailers to the nitty gritty of getting them on the road.

Meet Blanche

We've been working nonstop since early April to get at least one booth on the road. Everyone, meet Blanche!

Welcome to 2017, where not only is #vanlife a thing, but glamping is the go-to way to experience the outdoors. We've always had a bit of a crush on vintage campers, and we're thrilled to have a few to customize into photo booths! In the 50s and 60s, when road trips became popular, travel trailers became the thing to have. Lightweight and manageable, these campers were perfect for family adventures. Blanche is a 1966 Roadrunner travel trailer, built in Utah from the info I could find.

Why "Blanche?"

Well, let's just say #GoldenGirlsGroupie. The 1957 Mercury canned ham camper is Rose and the 1953 smushed camper is a Westerner named Dorothy. (Poor Dorothy.) Someday, our goal is to get an itty bitty camper so we can round out the crew and add Sophia. We're keeping an eye out!

Blanche was purchased in Medford, Oregon, in early April 2017. The family was camping in Lake Shasta and on a whim, we decided to go for it...make the additional 2.5 hour trek to Oregon. It was worth it - she was in good shape, mostly cosmetic fixes, and a bit on the larger side for more smiling faces in the booth. Read more about that adventure!

Blanche will rock her first event on August 20, 2017, at the girl & the fig's 20th Anniversary Party. Give us a shout if you'll be there! Starting August 22, Blanche will be ready for additional events.

Props

Thank you to Jonathan Sherman of Marriage Envy for posting their adventure with their 1965 Roadrunner and all of the history they shared during the process. Another shout out goes to Misty of Ostrobogulous Cackleberries for sharing her Roadrunner restoration. These two sites were ridiculously helpful while renovating Blanche! (And still will be considering she's still got some work to be done!)
