Vintage Camper Makeovers

I am definitely NOT a camper. Okay, so I was a camper when I was little and my parents did all the work. We’re talking tent setup and take-down, scrambled eggs and pancakes on the Coleman stove, dishes done in separate buckets of soapy and clean water and chaperoning us via flashlight to and from the bathroom.

That so isn’t my thing as a grownup. We have yet to take our four kids camping—and I’m sure it has something to do with my aversion to dirt, bugs, campfire smoke, more dirt and more bugs. But I could be seriously tempted to head up the canyon if we were towing on of these beauties.

I believe these vintage camper makeovers are what many are calling “glamping,” and I think I could totally do the glamping thing…as long as the campsite were free from dirt.

  1. I am just putting the finishing touches on my glamper (the Pink Paradise) and I have fallen completely head over heels for these little beauties. I’m already thinking about restoring another one. It’s so nice to be able to see how everyone transforms their campers into glampers. You’ve picked some great designs!
