Before & After: 10 Unbelievable Trailer Transformations

Share It

There’s little that gives us wanderlust more than the allure of an open road calling our name — for us, and our fur-babies in tow, with an adorable trailer bringing up the back. When it comes to renovations, a trailer isn’t easy per se, but due to its relative small size it seems somehow more manageable. The other thing that makes trailer renovations so impressive is that, for the most part, the interior of a trailer is not for the design-minded. Over the years we have shared several impressive trailers that have become homes, businesses, and vacation spots. We’ve rounded up some of our D*S favorites, as well as some of our favorites from around the web. Do you feel like us, that seeing a newly refreshed trailer makes you want to break out your chisel and a bucket of paint to see what awaits you? —Rebekah

    It sure does. Even to the point of renovating a business space that’s inviting and innovative. This is exactly what I did with the invention of The Finance Bar. Free free to visit for images of our mobile hub. Great article!

  2. Amazing! I can’t even fathom how such a tiny space could look so light and airy. And I just love the modern retro look with the fresher, cheerier color palette. I just love it!

  3. So much more relaxing now. Like a mini home, instead of a waiting room.

  4. Such an amazing post! I find it amazing on how those trailers transformed into such an awesome trailer! Thanks for sharing this compilation!

    Remodeling–an idea to consider for our vintage rv. Thanks for the inspiration.

    When I made cheese on a farm in washington state, I lived in an airstream from the 1970s. It was actually quite comfortable and spacious because of its ability to pull couches into beds, and fold tables up into the wall. It would have been a dream to renovate it, so that it could have become a more permanent mainstay.

  7. So much more relaxing now. This is a great article. Thanks for sharing
