A Closer Look At This Beautifully Renovated 1964 Kenskill Camper

Reinventing yourself once you’re fifty years old isn’t easy. This vintage camper makes it look like a snap.

A previous owner used the 1964 Kenskill camper as a food truck for selling muffins. A trailer who’s survived five decades as a camper and a food truck has probably been through some rough times. And you’d think that would be the end of that.

Not so fast.

Ginger and Lewis, a couple who live in Oakland, California’s East Bay, snapped up the lovely trailer and gave it a third act: a rental hostel on their property.

Tired travelers will love the fact that the trailer is located only 7 blocks from the Bay Area Rapid Transit station.

Just wear sunglasses when you approach your new temporary home. The dazzling colors can be blinding!

Creatively named the Muffin Mansion, this cozy camper comfortably sleeps 2.
