This couple purchased the travel trailer so that they could completely re-do it. It was pretty banged up as you could see (especially the inside). But just shows what you could do with something that already exists. Just takes time, patience, a little bit of money, and lots of labor.

They completely gutted it and rebuilt it from scratch and I think they did an amazing job. They even rented a garage just so they can do this. Read the complete and original story with even more photos here. It was later put up for sale as you can see here.

Simple Living in a Tiny Travel Trailer

simple-living-in-a-tiny-travel-trailer-reno

I’m not sure I could live all year long in a travel trailer this small, but I can definitely do it for a short period of time. Like a few weeks or a month or two while enjoying someplace new and different. And this tiny travel trailer seems like it was renovated really nicely. It looks so homey!

If I were living alone and wanted it to remain that way I would consider living simply in something like this because it’s so cost effective and easy to maintain. It’s also a really great way to start living tiny while possibly designing and building your future tiny or small home. See this book if this sparks your interest.

I thought you’d also enjoy this wonderful Airstream “tiny house” setup right on the beach in Australia. I wouldn’t just want to vacation here, I’d want to stay… How about you?

For me there’s nothing better than living simply with Andrea and doing that oceanside. And here’s one way to do that.

1956 Vintage Yellowstone Travel Trailer

Vintage 1956 Yellowstone Travel Trailer

Stick Built Tiny Houses on Trailers vs. Lightweight Travel Trailers

Once in a while I like to mention that travel trailers especially vintage ones like this 1956 Yellowstone are great options if you want to live tiny in a mobile and lighter way. We all love the look and feel of stick built houses and of course would love to build on a trailer because it looks and feels like a real home. But if you’re seriously considering lots of travel and moving around something like this that’s more aerodynamic and lightweight is a lot more realistic, practical and affordable to move around with. And something like this attracts less attention on the road and the campgrounds, too. Unless, of course, you want the attention.
