Hello friends! I am so excited about this post! I have put a couple teases out there on social media about my camp trailer make-over (HERE and HERE) and today is the day you get to see the whole thing! First, I must tell you, this was not an effort to turn our camper into a ‘glamper.’ Although camping in a nice trailer is pretty ‘glampy, ‘ I still needed it to be totally functional, and durable. We pull this trailer into the mountains and get it dirty. Sticky marshmallow hands come in and out. We make hot chocolate, eat chips, and play games. I didn’t want to make it so nice and cute that I would stress about using it. I wanted it to look like a trailer still, but without the touristy- bad-shirt- tropical leaf fabric. And so, this is my super practical camp trailer make-over!

We had a tent trailer previous to this, but were ready for a little more space as our girls are getting bigger and there are 6 of us. We have loved it! It has bunk beds in the back so each kid has their own bed without any need for dissembling and reassembling for sleep. It is dreamy. My husband added a solar panel to the roof that keeps our battery charged constantly. Um, solar power is awesome! It’s no wonder we are seeing more and more solar panels on homes and businesses.
Here’s the bunk beds. This is exactly how it came when we bought it. The lady included the cute red bedding which partly helped inspire the whole color scheme I chose. The girls each have a sleeping bag under the duvet, and they are so cozy and warm. I can’t even tell you how amazing it is that all four girls have their own bed!
Okay, so we left the bunk zone AS-IS. Here’s a few pictures of what the rest of the trailer looked like when we bought it.
The “master bedroom” which is on the opposite end from the bunk beds.The only thing I changed was the fabric-anything covered with that typical floral, leafy trailer fabric. Although this fabric really isn’t all that bad compared to others I’ve seen. Still, I wanted to make this our own, and a place I really love to be. If I left it AS-IS, the chance of me obsessing over how I wanted to change it the whole time we were in it is like 100%.
I didn’t get a good before picture of the kitchen side, but the window had an upholstered valance and mini blinds just like the other windows. It came with white cabinets-Yahoo! It’s one of the few models out there that comes with white cabinets. Another HUGE bonus to me!
Last, some shots of the details. I found these cute party cup party lights at the Dollar Store and hung a couple strands using Command hooks. I love them!I put together a few cute wood crafts from the Wood Connection and picked up the adorable white lantern from Target. The pillows are also from Target.
There you have it. This is where we have spent many weekends this summer and plan to spend many more. I am in love with how it all came together, which is a relief because there were plenty of times I was kicking myself for messing with an already good thing-haha!
I live for our weekends away! The mountains, hikes, waterfalls, Jeep rides, camp fires, games, kick ball, and just being unplugged for a few days at a time. We laugh and play together and oh how I love it!
