I honestly believe I could live happily in a cozy vintage trailer under the right circumstance. I am seriously considering buy one to refurbish and use in my work, maybe even rent out. This one above is owned by a cupcake maker and they rent it out for events. I am thinking as a mobile photo studio... with character. Anyway I have searched the web high and low and posted some of my favorite saucy finds on Pie today.

The Bolers are really sweet. I love how small and well fitted they are. There was one on Craigslist in our area last summer that had been refitted with mid-century fabrics and light fixtures.

We've got a couple businesses that use them as a mobile craft store and vintage clothing store. I love this trend.

Where are you and do you happen to remember how much they were asking for that boler?

We're in Austin and it was almost ten thousand dollars. It had been completely renovated and was really cool. I had no bench mark for what a fair price would be.

Me neither but that does not sound too bad. I am sure it would be easy to sink that much into fixing one up.

Thanks!

My husband and I were thinking about doing something similar for our recording studio/guitar repair businesses. They just seem so fun! We have a neighbor with a big silver Airstream, and though I can't see needing something that big, it sure is nice to look at.

I absolutely love them too! I wouldn't want to live in one though. I live in a pretty cold country.

Have you seen the book My Cool Caravan? It's full of gorgeous photos and short articles about various peoples' vintage caravans and trailers.

I love these, also the smaller tuna can ones. Picture shows a Saarinen table example, made for Knoll. Just picked up a 48" table and chairs set at an estate sale Friday. Too slow however, and missed the $49 apiece barcellona chairs. Whoops! Always happy with mid century design. I'd like to see more trailer pics and info.
