"I have been towing trailers since I was 16," she said. "My dad taught me how to tow and park a horse trailer. We had a three-horse angle load that was max-width for the road, so my travel trailer is pretty simple in comparison."

Living near Calgary, Alberta, at that time, Colleen focused on three-day eventing. "I road a 16.2 hand Thoroughbred gelding named Dancing Bert," she said.
"I spent my summers touring around Alberta for competitions and training camps." She retired from riding when she moved away from home for university. "But I miss it a lot."

"The main benefit to owning my trailer is that we can pull in and go to bed with zero prep or set up. It is warm and dry in any weather conditions and always provides a comfortable place to hang out."
The Jayco Jayflight has a fridge, freezer, oven, stove, furnace, and a small tub with shower. It can sleep up to seven people, "but it is quite close quarters with that many people," said Colleen.
