Well we are finally done with the mini-redo. Which, when we began the project, I thought was going to be mini-er than it turned out to be. He also replaced the window sills which were damaged after 40 years in the sun.
Randy is a lifelong lover of the outdoors and especially camping. His articles are intended to help the RVer save money and time on repairs. Fortunately for us DIY types, there are many used or classic travel trailers and other types of campers for sale that merely need a little fixing up and modernizing to make them comfortable and safe for our families to enjoy.
A travel trailer seems like a safer bet for a newbie like me. I may have mentioned on this blog before, that RVs in New Zealand are horribly expensive. Even second hand used trailers will run you into thousands of dollars.
Well we are finally done with the mini-redo. Which, when we began the project, I thought was going to be mini-er than it turned out to be. He also replaced the window sills which were damaged after 40 years in the sun. Then we had an unexpected and unpleasant surprise.
We began my vintage camper trailer remodel in September of At the time, I shared updates and pictures on my travel blog Oh! I will share that series of blog posts with you all here.
We are Flyte Camp. As a child, Justin found himself fascinated not only with vintage travel trailers, but especially ones manufactured by aircraft companies. She instantly fell in love with the cool lines and mid-century styling of the Shasta Airflyte that inevitably became their first baby.
Rather than buying new and ready to use, some campers love to dig into DIY remodels. She DIYed funky geometric wood flooring to go with muted but warm paint choices. Mandi sets the bar high with this vintage trailer makeover, even painted the exterior with a cool geometric pattern, laid an exposed wood door, painted a fun design on the tabletop, added open shelving, and lots of potted plants.
This means I get to link you to awesome stuff, and I will make a little commission to help keep MiaT up and running! We swept out the camper and pulled out the old propane stove which Daddy will try to restore for me. I want to build up a toilet box in the little bathroom that will house a Number 1 only camp toilet.
If you are just tuning in, you are in for a treat. All of the projects in The Nugget have been linked at the bottom of this post! If you want to follow the series from the beginning, start here!
Before you dive right in on a camper that you plan to make a project out of, be sure to speak to those you know that own one in order to determine whether this is truly the right fit for you. This little number is a Jayco Eagle which was found on Craigslist. With a few dollars and a little elbow grease, their tent trailer has a touch of class that they love.
