“The more you bring, the more you have to carry, which is why most people leave many amenities behind when they take a trip away from the beaten path. This new version of the classic teardrop trailer lets you slip a little more luxury into your travels while still exploring the unknown.”
Mariah has built herself a very place in an old trailer.
“…here are a few shots of Mariah Coz and her “Comet Camper”, which was part of the tours on our grounds up in Vermont. Basically, Mariah acquired this Avalon classic camper for very little money, and it gutting it to make it her own, AND to take it around the country, eventually, as a traveling classroom for sustainable and off-grid living. You can check out from her at www.cometcamper.wordpress.com“
Here’s an interesting example of a trailer conversion. It shows that even a horse trailer can be converted into usable space for humans. Thinking outside the box it’s not hard to imagine how a tiny home could be built inside a horse trailer.
“Smith has converted a horse trailer into a traveling pub, serving six craft beers to festival goers and urban quaffers.”
Here’s an excellent example of what can be done with an old trailer. Nice work Tiffany!
“Tiffany was given the 52-year old trailer, “Audree” as a gift from her husband, and she soon became “obsessed” with fixing her up. Rather than completely gutting Audree’s interior, Tiffany strove to keep much of the vintage interior intact, such as an enamel icebox, 1950′s grey speckled flooring and aqua counter tops. She then designed the interior in keeping with the vintage feel of the trailer, and the result is a cheerful space that looks incredibly welcoming.”
A trailer can make a nice tiny house alternative – especially if you plan to be on the move. Rebecca shares this example on trailerchicgirls.com.
“Casita trailers are a nice travel option, and they advertise to be lightweight and fuel-efficient. New ones start at $14,000, but our neighbor was able to find his for $5,000. He did a little renovating inside, mostly on the cabinets; replacing the old ones with new dark mahogany-stained ones.”
Long before the first Tumbleweed Tiny House rolled across Iowa there were folks living in converted busses and house trucks. Here’s a beauty.
“Plenty of us have dreamed of hitting the road in a sleek Airstream. Fewer have seen the potential in a 1959 Chevrolet Viking short bus. One creative owner did, and enlisted architect Will Winkelman, designer Vincent Moulton, and master woodworker Tony Jose to convert this Viking into a beautiful, travel-ready camper.”
Solar Burrito posted this on Facebook. Very cool extension for a VW camper.
“Overlander Motorhomes is presenting how it sees as the rational compliment to the pop top – it is the DoubleBack, a sliding insulated pod so extends the interior length of Volkwagen‘s T5 Transporter van.”
This is a clever creation. Like a Swiss Army Knife the SwissRoomBox provides multiple tools for living in one compact package. It’s intended to turn any vehicle with a hatchback into a camper. Lots of interesting space saving ideas here. Thanks again for the great link Dav!
Australian Off Road Campers builds some extreme camping trailers that can be taken to remote locations across very rough terrain. Be sure to watch their videos to see the kind of rough roads these little trailers can traverse.
