trailer design to aspire to


Umm… I think my jaw might have dropped when I came across the images of this trailer. Certainly a little *gasp!* escaped my lips.  How incredibly cool, modern and PRETTY is this?!  I don’t know much about the company that made it because their website is in spanish, but Caravanolic has clearly created a trailer living space like no other (at least no other I’ve seen).  SOOOO pretty!

I really can’t imagine walking into this trailer after splashing around in farm mud and chicken poop, but I do love what they’ve been able to do with the space.  For anyone who appreciates interior (and exterior!) design, and particularly for people like me who are intrigued about design possibilities for trailer living (which may be more of you now that the average price of a Vancouver home has reached the 1 million dollar mark), I thought these photos might be fun and inspiring to drool over.

See more photos of this beautiful little trailer home on Caravanolic’s website (click on ‘caravanas’).  Interior photos of my own little trailer home coming soon!

sitting area almost complete!


The eating, board-game playing, wine-drinking, hang-out zone in the back end of my motorhome is almost done!  The only thing missing is the table (coming soon).  My mom stopped by today and dropped off the cushions she has beautifully upholstered for me (in Italian wool I scored at the Bensen/ Inform Warehouse Sale), as well as the curtains she made out of some old IKEA curtains I had in my last place.  She also contributed some unused throw cushions she had at home, as well as some new cushion covers she made me out of left-over wool to make the space inviting.  I’m SO happy with how it all looks – fresh and clean and comfortable – exactly what I was going for.  Thanks mom – I love it all!

I’ve also started decorating the space.  My ‘centerpiece’ is the antelope head hanging above the table (bought it at Front & Company a few months ago specifically for the motorhome).  I also used a painting (picked up from Value Village a few months ago), a brass horse (that I’ve had since I was a kid) and my journals to fill the shelf above the bench that used to house a flat screen tv (that I removed and recycled – who needs a tv?).  Photos of everything above.

Getting excited to finish this project so that I can invite some friends over to toast the new space!

building the trailer bedframe


So, my parent’s came out to the farm a couple days ago and my dad built my bedframe into the trailer. So exciting! We decided to build my bed up at the front of the trailer in order to keep the back as the sitting/ eating area. We removed the driver’s seat (the passenger seat was gone before I got the trailer), and my dad built a platform for my mattress up on the elevated driving area. It’s not quite done yet – it needs some more wood slats put in, but you’ll get the idea from the photos. We’re going to add foam at the foot of the mattress and to the side to make it a bit bigger and to fill out the space. I’m downsizing from a queen mattress to a twin so I’m taking every little bit of extra that I can.

There’s room for storage space underneath the bed and the dashboard will become a kind of ‘trailer chic’ bedside table. Oh – and we can’t take the steering wheel out (at least not very easily), so that will also be a fun little piece of built-in trailer decor too. So funny. 

Now that the bedframe is mostly in, it’s a lot easier for me to visualize the whole front area.  Can’t wait for the decorating part!
