I just stumbled on to a website for an antique dealer who seems to specialize in military campaign furniture. If you go through the "Stock Pages" I thought it might inspire some ideas, for portable camping items, and maybe even display ideas for booths

I have recently been tempted by the 12' x 20' Bell Wedge tent from Tentsmiths. There's a canopy bed that breaks down for easy transport that I really want, also...

It's a possibility that I could work them into my budget this year... maybe...  (sigh)

If you really want a double bell wedge at a really affordable price try Midwest Tents.  Here is the link: http://midwesttent.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=46

Nice, although it's a bit shorter than the one I was looking at. My canopy bed probably wouldn't fit in it. Still for that much cheaper it's at least worth checking to see if I could make it work! Thanks!!!

I just want to furnish mine in the Gypsy "style"... you know, rich colors, furs on the bed, candle lanterns, tapestries... I mean, really, who wouldn't want to hang out in there???

I have the feeling the party would just come to me...  LOL

Care to officially decorate my rollin' party bus? Methinks you'd be rather well suited for the challenge of putting something together! ;)

Negotiations are underway, so get ready darling Rani! The task is officially yours if you want it!

I'm buyin', is that enough? I've got plenty of plans, and will be doing Scarby, so if the deal goes through, I've got a starter of two(triple stuffed) futon pads to work with. The rest I'm sure will come as directed by an official decorator. There is no doubt about you'll do something special on an official party wagon!

Now I'm just thinking about the paint scheme.....I hate yellow! At least, that much of it!!

Well, if you're going for the "Gypsy vardo" look then there are some traditional colors, but really anything in green with gold trim is classic for the Gypsy look...

Inside, of course, you need plenty of wood, lots of plush earth tones and muted jewel tones, and all the little touches that really say "Gypsy vagabond"...

Will you be doing all the interior construction yourself? I've actually done something like this before, and I have to admit the results were pretty spectacular. I wish I had pictures, but it was many years ago, and digital cameras were few and far between, and I've since lost contact with the bus owner.

Well a huge RV would be the dream.  You know one of those you see on the travel channel that cost a million dollars.  But since I will NEVER have one of those, I'll talk about my dreams for what I DO have.

We are buying a pop-up from a friend of ours.  For really cheap and it's in pretty good shape.

So.....

I can't decide between doing it up gypsy wagon like, something that nobility would travel in or something with scottish flare.  Either way I am putting pergo flooring in it.  In a nice rich rosewood. 

If I go gypsy wagon, I'm thinking exotic with bright exciting colors.  Middle Easten inspired decor.  Stuff like that.

If I go noble.  Then I was thinking tapestries, jewel tones and filagree.

Scottish.  Well plaid and sheep I guess.  hehehehe  But lots of thistle-y stuff, celtic knot work, anything from Gaelsong.

What do you all think?

I would go with the mystical gypsy/noble look.  It is easier for you to find items to decorate with and will be more versitile.
