Many people dream of leaving their jobs to travel full-time, but don’t know where to start. Philadelphia couple Mark and Nives dove right into it, leaving their hectic jobs and pricey loft in the city for a more simple, nomadic lifestyle in an old army trailer they bought off Craigslist.
Their minimalistic trailer is pulled by a Chevy Silverado, which is also used for storage (in the truck bed) and as a mobile office. The trailer was made to be sustainable off-the-grid with a solar panel system, golf cart batteries with 235 amp hours of power, and a Goal Zero Yeti portable power station.
They additionally installed a rainwater collection system on the roof that recycles water into their 35 gallon tank for washing dishes, showering, and purposes other than eating/drinking.
On the side of their trailer, doors open to reveal a custom pantry system. The top door lifts up, and bottom door folds down to create counter space for cooking. In the summer, an 8-foot by 8-foot awning can be set up along with a zip-on screen to keep the bugs out.

To sustain their lifestyle, the couple combined their skills to start Camp Trend, a traveling media production company. You can see their portfolio on their website, CampTrend.com.
