Ron and Shayna used to live in an RV full-time, so they know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to renovating trailers. The couple now owns a business — Darlin Trailers — where they’re commissioned to renovate all kinds of RVs into beautiful homes for their customers.
Their latest project is this breathtaking 1963 Airstream Overlander, renovated in an airy Scandinavian style with a spacious luxury bathroom. It started out as a truly dilapidated old trailer, but now it looks like a perfect summer oasis. What do you think?
Today, we’re super excited to let you read Allison & James’ super-detailed story — there’s no need for my commentary! Grab yourself a cup of coffee, and I’ll let Allison take it from here…
We are a couple from opposite sides of the world (Newfoundland and Australia) building a life together in a teeny-tiny 160 square feet.
Our current tiny home is a vintage 1968 Airstream Overlander nestled in the woods here in the Canadian Pacific Northwest! We’ve been living in and restoring our tiny home on wheels for the past 15 months.
We purchased the Airstream for $8,000 knowing that it would need a complete overhaul. And we converted it into our dream modern tiny home with our own two hands, in just 60 days, without prior building experience. It’s been a huge project!!
Val and Josh left Portland and moved into a home, hoping to get closer to nature — but they discovered they spent even less time outdoors than before! So they started travelling in a renovated 5th wheel.
Soon they realized it was too big and bulky for the amount of travel they wanted to do, so they sold the 5th wheel and bought a 2014 Airstream, which they turned into their house on wheels. After decking it out with an amazing solar system, they were able to renovate the interior to match their style and needed functionality.
Jenna over at Tiny House Giant Journey did a great video interview with the awesome couple, which you can watch at the end of the post.
This family of 6 first downsized from a typical American home into a 5th wheel trailer some five years ago, and then downsized (again!) into their Tiny Shiny Home: A renovated, off-grid-friendly, Airstream! Because dad Jonathan works from home already, and the kids were homeschooled, they had what they needed to transition to full-time travel. They’ve spent the last 5 years on the road exploring the country from their tiny home.
Tiny House Giant Journey did an amazing video tour with the family, which you can watch below! The video was taken before the family announced last month that they purchased land in Arizona, and are building a tiny dome home (how cool) and creating an off-grid homestead. Be sure to follow them on Instagram at @tinyshinyhome for updates on their new adventure!
This is the story of a man who renovated his 70s Airstream into an awesome tiny home on wheels that he now lives in with his daughter.
It’s a 1976 Airstream Ambassador. It measures 30′ from the rear to the hitch and offers about 28′ of space inside. From the outside, it still looks like a classic Airstream travel trailer. When you go inside, you’ll find a unique living area with a kitchen, daybed, dining table that converts into a bed, a bathroom, and plenty of storage throughout.
If you’re an Airstream travel trailer lover like I am, I think you’ll really enjoy this renovation. It’s a story about a family of four who partnered with Anthropologie to transform an old Airstream trailer into a beautiful tiny home on wheels.
This little home has been named the Wandering Star. I think you might agree that you’ve never seen an Airstream that probably looks and feels like a cozy home more than this one. It’s just awesome, isn’t it?
Oh wait, you probably haven’t even seen it yet! Just wait until you see inside. I think you’ll be pretty amazed. Not only is it awesome, but it serves as a reminder that you can live tiny in a renovated travel trailer too! Especially if you desire to travel often. Remember, there are many ways to live tiny (and stick-built tiny homes on trailers aren’t the only way). So please enjoy the tour, visit Sarah Schneider, and re-share this with your other Airstream-loving friends below. 🙂
