This familiar catch phrase is common to many. Sometimes a bathroom has his & hers sinks. Perhaps a couple has his & hers towels or pillows. I’ve seen his & hers tattoos. How about his & hers enclosed trailers? Odd, you might say? It is the new reality for the hunter and the junker in our household.
I’ve been fortunate to utilize Jon’s enclosed trailer for the past few years as my junking hobby transformed into a business. It has done the job just fine. Although, I grew accustomed to the waterfowl remnants, empty shotgun shells, and the finest mud/muck that the Dakota’s have to offer; it was a constant unloading/loading process that Jon and I both grew weary of. We both have hobbies that come with bulk. Jon’s dozens (and dozens and dozens) of decoys, layout blinds, an ATV, racks, and decoy sleds easily compare to the junking bulk I’ve accumulated.
So, with an enclosed trailer on my Junk By Jenny wish list for some time now, I took the plunge and purchased my own last week. A typical consumer would shop the trailer dealerships to see first hand their purchase, meet with the sales folks, and peek inside. Not me. I purchased my trailer sight unseen with a quick cruise online during my lunch break last week. Days later, following a few phone calls and emails, I had the purchase sealed up. As I asked myself, “Is this weird? Did I just buy a trailer over the phone?”, I was reminded this wasn’t the first time I had done this. Years back, I purchased the most adorable Volkswagen Beetle over the phone.
Luckily, Jon was able to pick up my new gem. I think he secretly thought I was crazy to make a substantial purchase such as this over the phone and felt he needed to “check this over first.” He managed to convince my awesome salesman, Bryan to pose with the trailer. Bryan tried to dodge the photo, playfully arguing the photo opp wasn’t part of the deal. Being the good Junk Hunk Jon is, he convinced the salesmen I’d appreciate the photo, which I did.
It was fun to see my shiny new purchase roll into the alley as Jon arrived home with it. It seemed only fitting that the first inhabitants of the trailer were some cool pieces of junk.
Needless to say, the “hers” of our his & hers trailer duo won’t be seeing any hunting garb or plowed fields in it’s future. And, the hunting trailer has hauled it’s last loads of junk.
