Vintage Trailer Rentals from Goodness Travels

Clear your calendars, New Yorkers—the weekend road trip just got a heck of a lot cooler. While vintage trailer rentals have been a thing on the west coast for years, one small new company is bringing the joy of trailer camping to adventure-seekers on the east coast starting this summer. Goodness Travels, which currently rents a small “canned ham” trailer by the night, was founded by a husband/wife team hoping to spread their love of “tiny homes-on-wheels.” While their flagship trailer, Honey, is understandably minimal, it packs quite a lot of charm and utility into such a small space. Outfitted with two beds, a retro-style icebox, working kitchen, and an electrical hookup, this little guy is also souped up with fresh paint and some lovely midcentury-appropriate touches. According to the company’s website, Honey sleeps two adults (or “four very close friends”) comfortably, and starts at just $104 a night. For those looking to get away with friends from the city’s hustle, bustle, and sweltering heat this summer, Goodness Travels seems like the perfect option.

  1. I love this! I’ve been fantasizing about a vintage Airstream for awhile now, but of course have nowhere to put one, let alone all the costs. This is a great solution. Very cool, indeed.

  2. Bekah says:

    I can’t contain my excitement. What an amazing idea! Love it.

  3. I know a couple who did this for their honeymoon exploring New Zealand – such an awesome way to travel!!

  4. What a great idea. It looks surprisingly roomy and comfortable inside!

  5. Anni says:

    I’m going to be honest, while I love this idea, I think my husband, at 6’1″, would kill me. I feel like he’d be constantly stooped over in there.

  6. Amanda says:

    Ohhhhh, this is seriously rad. I want a tiny trailer so very much.

  7. Amber says:

    My husband and I are taking a 3-week road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway this summer, from San Diego, CA to Port Townsend, WA. Can you suggest a vintage trailer rental vendor on the West Coast please? Thanks!

  8. Janice says:

    Umm where can I find this on the West coast? This is my dream come true!

  9. Jess says:

    There’s a place like this in far west Texas… El Cosmico – Marfa, TX

  10. sammi says:

    I wish they are on the west coast. It will be much more fun to camp in CA.

  11. susan says:

    Oh wow…such an awesome concept! When they add a larger one that could accomodate my family of four (preferably a vintage Airstream land yacht), I’ll be there in a skinny minute!

  12. My husband and I love to camp with our girls. This would make it so much fun!

  13. Mrs. Vallejos says:

    On the west coast, try http://vacations-in-a-can.com/ They have some lovely teardrop trailers (sleeping quarters inside, kitchen outside), as well as vintage models. I’m having trouble convincing the hubby to give this a try. One of these days he’s gonna lose a bet, then BAM!

  14. Cindy Tedesco says:

    Does anyone know of a place in Western North Carolina that rents vintage trailers?

  15. Debbie Clinger says:

    Would absolutely love this…one I could actually handle myself..???
