She Turned A Pop Up Camper Into A Low-Rent, New Zealand Home

This post was updated on March 19th, 2024

While not the tiniest of RVs (have you seen this motorcycle camper before?) pop up campers don’t provide a lot of living room. My family’s infatuation with pop up campers spans three generations, but none of us has ever lived in one full-time like Lily has.

22-year-old Lily Kemp calls Auckland City, New Zealand home, but she lives in a tiny pop up camper converted for full-time living.

She spent $1,000 on the retro pop up camper and $500 more to renovate it to her liking.

Bryce from Living Big In A Tiny House got a chance to catch up with Lily and ask her about what it’s like to live in a tiny RV.

Notable facts about Lily’s camper:

  • She does pay a bit of rent for a place to park her camper outside of a rental house, but it’s about 25% of what her friends pay for living indoors!
  • She bought a solar charger for less than $60 to run her radio, fan, phone, and lights.
  • She had to repair the floor of the camper as it suffered from major water damage.

An average home in Auckland City, New Zealand costs over a half a million dollars? Wow, and I thought home prices in the Midwest were getting out of hand again. Lily’s use of bright colors makes the pop up trailer seem almost roomy. Check out this other fabulous pop up camper remodel for more design inspiration.
