step inside, won't you? {our tent trailer}

Hooray! Our tent trailer makeover is finally (well, just about) complete. "Trailer Sue" has had some serious work done since we first bought her on Craigslist a few months back. Here's what went down: bamboo flooring, freshly painted cabinets & walls, all new upholstery, new counter tops (Ikea), fancy hardware, new tires, and new ceiling lighting. We're all set for the big road trip down the coast, I just have to stock all the cabinets and plan a menu. It's very cozy inside and folds down (just like a puzzle) into a neat 8'x8' square. It's pretty tiny, so it was hard to get a good angle with the camera, but hopefully you get the idea. Come on in, have a looksie!

This is the lovely trailer before the makeover...
notice the icky fabric and funky cabinets

So, so awesome! I love that you redid it yourselves. Was it hard?? I need to talk hubby into this now. An Airstream is just too pricey.
