What One Man Did With This Boring Little Trailer Is Absolutely Amazing!

I absolutely love anything related to camping or any kind of alternative living, like tiny homes.

I remember that when I was young my father had a extra large passenger van that we would take on ┬ámulti-state driving trips to visit family. He had the back half of the van arranged like it was a small camper with beds and a small bathroom. Still can’t remember how he did that one.

Anyway, he ran that van like that for years until literally it just fell apart one day…This hunk of junk wasn’t serving much of a purpose as an old trailer, but once a clever crafter put some work into it, the trailer got a brand new lease on life.

When it came time for Instructables user Dustman0042 to upgrade his trailer, he really went all out. Just in time for some summer fun, he turned the run-down trailer into something any lover of the outdoors would appreciate. If you’d like to know how to pull off a similar makeover, check this out!

This is what he started with.

First, he totally gutted it.

That’s when the real makeover began. With a shiny tin roof and a bright red coat of paint, this little trailer was ready to hit the road (and look gorgeous doing it)!
