I’m going to let you all in on a little dream of mine. I want to makeover a vintage camper SO badly! I’m a little more concerned with buying a house right now (ugh), but one day, I would love nothing more than to purchase a rundown vintage trailer and make it over into the cutest, coziest trailer to take on adventures and camping trips. Since I’m more interested in “glamping” than actual camping, these camper makeovers seemed like the perfect inspiration for me. To get inspired, I put together 12 camper makeovers that are sure to amaze you and make you want to run out and buy a camper/trailer/RV tomorrow to make all of your glamping dreams come true!

1. Mandi’s 1972 Bell Travel Trailer makeover, dubbed The Nugget, (top photo) will always be my favorite. Every extremely detailed DIY from inside and out came together to create a completely adorable, custom trailer!

2. Even just a little white paint completely made over this RV! Now it looks sleek, modern and bright.

4. Go rustic with lots of reclaimed wood, like this beautifully re-done Airstream trailer

5. An edge-glued pine tabletop and countertops are a centerpiece of this updated pop-up camper with lots of color and flea market finds.

6. Little upgrades like paint and drawer handles make a big difference, like this couple found when they updated a camper to take around the country.

7. Comfortable pieces make this family-friendly Airstream trailer truly feel like a home away from home. 

8. Is it a house or a trailer?! This 5th wheel makeover shows what a difference some bright decor choices can make.

10. Not only is this 5th wheel renovation gorgeous and full of color (those yellow cabinets!), but the owners live in their 188-square-foot camper full-time in order to downsize and travel the country.

12. Mavis the Airstream is another vintage camper of my dreams, and you can tell every piece of the Airstream was methodically planned with all the boho vibes you could dream of.

OK, is anyone else ready to makeover a vintage camper with me?
