Family Effort Recreates Charming Vintage Avion Trailer

Remodeling an RV is always a good idea. You can take an old trailer, covered in dust from sitting around for years, and give it a whole new life to fit your own needs and personality.

Or, you can just fix up the same ole camper that you’ve already grown used to over time, and make it feel like an all-new home-on-wheels. Either way, it’s always pretty awesome to rebuild everything just the way you like.

Looking for some inspiration to start your next project? Check out the inside of this charming remodeled trailer by Under The Sycamore.

They found the perfect vintage Avion trailer on craigslist:

It was an ideal size for their family, and within their price range. But like with most used trailers, there are always some improvements you can do to really make it feel like home.

Here are a couple of their before-and-after shots:

To start, they painted the inside a glossy white, and put in fabrics and durable laminate flooring:

They also added in some curtains, so their light can stay on at night even after the kids have gone to bed:

On the other side of the curtains, they have a bathroom, dining area that folds down into a bed for the adults, and a full-size fridge near the middle of the trailer.

There’s built-in storage space above and below the beds, which is especially helpful for staying organized.

For the little ones, they have a board that slides between two beds, with a mattress on top and underneath on the ground. It comfortably sleeps four up top, and one below.

Their new window curtains are just exquisite:

The inside was mostly furnished with things already on hand at home. Luckily, the owner happened to be a collector of vintage tablecloths.

If you’re looking to remodel, but don’t already have quirky things to fill your camper with, there’s no need to go over-budget. You can pick up all kinds of inexpensive (but still great quality) items from places like: yard/garage sales, thrift stores like Goodwill, or even online from eBay or Etsy.

There’s no place quite like inside a remodeled trailer you’ve worked hard to improve:

All in all, the work is always well worth it. Under The Sycamore is lucky to now have such a unique place for their family to call home!

What do you think? Are you looking into remodeling a camper of your own soon?
