    I’m pretty sure I could live in this one

    Very nice unit! Inviting, well appointed and looks like a lot of fun. Camper appears to be in wonderful condition. guessing it to be 17 or 18′ long including the tongue.

    Love the “walk in” movie theatre. Might be a bit nicer if the toilet had some kind of enclosure or at least a curtain though.

    Although I like the style of old RV trailers, they are not the same thing as tinyhouses. They’re not built to home standards and won’t stand up to full time living. I am just now repairing some damage on our RV from a fender-bender, and I’ve found worse damage unrelated to the accident during the repair process. They ain’t water tight, and a leak can go undetected for years while it does critical damage to lightly constructed and weak material

    Love vintage caravans. That’s really cosy lovely. Except, the waste unit needs to be contained in a separate area to the kitchenette if a modest curtain surely……!!

    I have a cute small Astral Scout 900 which I am fixing right now. I lived in it for 9 Months in 2014, and it was very cosy. It’s where to park it next ….! I now have some Land to park it on and after repairs I am planning to travel in it.

    Innovation is a perception of a bright discernment mind! Well done!

  • Kathy June 4, 2016, 3:04 pm

    Davi Rodrigues is absolutely on the mark. I own a 63 vintage trailer and while I LOVE it, it is sorta like a boat, you know the hole in the (water) driveway where you throw your money. They are very subject to water damage and need mini overhauls on the seams at least once every 4-5 years to prevent irreversible rot. Don’t even get me started about replacing the floor! That said, this trailer is decked out to the 9’s – kudos to the owner- and would be a great way to try out camping style living if you are thinking about taking the plunge into ownership. Which I recommend!

    Nice Arnb rental, it’s not intended to be lived in as a tiny home so longevity isn’t a problem. It would give someone an upscale experience in old style trailer camping. I like the outdoor TV, as long as the neighbors don’t mind the noise.

  • Brandi June 4, 2016, 4:45 pm

    Adorable! Well done. Thank you for sharing this one Alex.

  • Larry Schoenemann June 5, 2016, 11:28 pm

    Very cool!

    This trailer looks like a vintage Shasta. It needs a set of wings!

    super cute and lovely job. but i would definitely put a shower where that closet is and enclose the toilet while i am at it. plenty of room for a closet elsewhere by the looks of it. and while you are plumbing the shower you can put in a plumbed toilet instead of the cassette. the curve is ok if you get a call of the wild in the middle of the night but i would not want to have to deal with its clean up for Everything.

    Messy and cluttered, or vice versa. Not a good example from my perspective… which may, or may not, be warped.
