Holy smokes, I have spent A LOT of time looking at updated vintage campers on the interwebz lately. Pinterest, Facebook, Youtube, google searches, the whole nine yards. I’ve been there – combing through pictures and videos and tutorials til the wee hours of the morning.

Literally, that’s why I haven’t posted a new post for like three weeks. I’ve been busy looking for all the vintage travel trailer info I could feast my eyes on. Why? Why, you ask. Well we may or may not be getting an old camper to redo ourselves!

We are!!!! Just waiting for a couple details to be taken care of on our end.

Once we get that ball rollin’ you know I will be sharing the process with you all. For now, I wanted to do a Wednesday (P)inspiration post to show you a glimpse into the world of gorgeously updated campers.

Darla 1966

From Instagram user Becki, this is probably my favorite “glamper” pic I’ve found! That green is the perfect combination of fresh and vintage.  And a camper with an ikat blacksplash? Classy!  There are a few more shots of this little gem on her Insta account.

The Yellowstone

I tracked down this beauty of a travel trailer to the There’s No Place like Homemade blog, though it was also featured by Country Living magazine! Cozy and cheery, I love that instead of painting the wood interior, she stained it. It’s very cute! I totally dig that color combo.

This camper is delish.  They packed in a lot of storage and function, while keeping a few of the original elements, like the flooring. Plus I -of course- love that exterior color; it’s so playful! That mustardy color is really working for me too.  Find more photos of this camper here.

The Little Home

Admittedly, grey and yellow are my favorite colors. So this makeover grabbed my eye. And once I read a little about it, wow! Meseidy, author of The Noshery blog along with her husband and dogs all moved into this 150 square foot camper! It’s colorful and modern, and I love it!  Since then, they’ve kept living small, but have upgraded to a larger model.  I really recommend you check their remodel process, which Meseidy beautifully documented on her blog! See all their camper projects here .

Pink Paradise

The pink! The chandelier! This lady has got glamping figured out! And isn’t that yellow stove adorable?  It was hard to choose just one photo of this glamper, because it is all-around beautiful.  You can find more photos of the Pink Paradise here, including the cedar planked bathroom. It is lovely!

Well there’s where my inspiration is coming from for this exciting project! I’m gonna show you a picture of the exterior of the our soon-to-be 1971 camper.

I don’t know if we’ll change the exterior, but I wanted to show this baby off.  I’m still looking for a name of her, so if you have any ideas let me know 🙂

My pal Cassie is also updating a vintage camper over at http://loveshack.wordpress.com so you can follow along with her, too!

Love,
