I‘m the kind of person who hates all things modern. Sure, I appreciate technology and convenience — but when it comes to decor, I prefer my things to have a rustic, aged look. I just enjoy being connected to the past.
That’s why I fell in love the instant I saw this beautiful little trailer. Not only does it feature amazing, modern-day luxuries, but it also captures a beautiful piece of the past. They simply don’t make things like this anymore.
And when I saw how brilliantly it was designed, I knew I had to add this caravan to my box of pipe dreams. With space-saving tricks like this, traveling or camping would be a breeze.

This little caravan may look like a delicate antique — but step inside, and you’ll learn just how practical it really is.
With its hand-hewn wood, fabricated steel, and its stretched sailcloth canopy, this trailer is 100% highway-ready.
But look within and the real magic begins. Trimmed in gorgeous 19th-century details and fixtures, this sleeper trailer is like a slice of the past.
Sunshine floods in through the canopy roof and hand-painted stained glass window. Soft pillows and cushions — upholstered in vintage stock from the 1920s — create a cozy interior.
The many types of wood, along with the copper details and gemstone handle pulls, create a rich glow.
This magical little nook is perfect for reading, napping, or just gazing out the window.
In winter, the caravan can be warmed by this lovingly restored coal-burning stove. The chimney can easily be added or removed as needed, and vents within the cabin help to air it out.
The dry sink is great for freshening up, and the cabinet below is perfect for storing toiletries.
The bed can be extended to a Queen, so it can comfortably sleep two adults. A pull-out desk is nestled below for dining or writing.
No detail has been overlooked in this exquisitely designed little trailer. After a long drive, wouldn’t it be nice to pull over and enjoy a cozy lunch in here?
But the caravan is not only trimmed with modern luxuries and conveniences; it strives to preserve the past with special little details — like these sconces taken from an old, abandoned hotel.
Its hand-painted trim work mimics the Norwegian folk style of the 1800s.
Exterior lighting is produced by reproduction coach lights, fueled by candles.
A brass letter compartment allows you to receive mail when camping or traveling.
Leaded stain glass is featured throughout the cabin, giving it an old world charm you just won’t find on modern campers.
Hand-tooled leather straps are used to secure the exterior storage compartment, also lovingly hand-painted in exquisite detail.
Unlike other trailers, this special little caravan is more than just a tool for travel…
It’s a charming spot for building memories and cozying up with the ones you love. Let us know in the comments below if you could see yourself sleeping here!
