Have you seen my step-by-step trailer restoration photos on my International Glamping Weekend website? If not, here’s a little peek of Lily, my ’68 Airstream trailer …

Complete with clawfoot bathtub, stove, and treadle sewing machine.

And my boudoir … my get-away-from-it-all sanctuary!

The floors are reclaimed wood from an old basketball court. The vintage painting of lilies on the wall is the reason she’s named Lily officially.

    Lily looks awesome & inviting. I love the floor. (And I bet it is easy to care for!) I’m still dreaming of my glamper!

    OMG! Lily is gorgeous! It makes me want to do something with my old trailer/temporary shed!

    Just looked through & read your step-by-step trailer restoration pictorial & am quite dazzled; what a remarkable transformation! The details you provided are wonderful & every bit as good as what one would see watching, ‘This Old House’…actually even better because you accomplished the entire project in one audience viewing. How long did that Airstream restoration take (from start to finish)? And you have another~similar project in the works? Wow, when do you find time to sleep MaryJane?

    Yet again, your details are superb & the pictures make me feel like I am there watching the transformation in real time. Love the “Decorative Thermoplastic Backsplash Panels” which you lined the curved ceiling with. Now your Glamper truly looks like a place I could vacation in while visiting a National Park or several…sure beats a bogged down Station Wagon with no throne:-) Not that I have ever tried that either but I’m starting to get the Glamping idea/theme. The inside of your little home away from home looks exactly my style. Will share your pictorial with hubby this w/e (pretty sure he will be impressed too) & also w/ a friend that lives out of her trailer year round. Thank you for sharing all of your hard work & knowledge with us. You should be so proud of that little Glamper!

      Thank you Elizabeth! Lily took 5 months on and off. Yes, I’m working on a Shasta rebuild but right now she’s parked in the barn for the winter. Don’t plan to start on her until spring. I have a book due May 1 (Milk Cow Kitchen) so after that I’ll be ready to roll. I pulled Lily through MT, WY, and SD late last summer. Piece of cake. You need to get yourself a glamper!

    Mary Jane- you are just so creative and your trailers are like works of art! This interior is so beautiful and practical too!!

    I love Airstreams. I have a 2007 27-footer and it is so fun to decorate. While mine is not nearly as glammed up as yours, They are such easy trailers to work with (and live in!).

      I’ve been looking at Airstreams. We are a family of 5. I’m thinking something like a 23′ with the bunk. Are they able to withstand a northern winter, without adding insulation?

    What model is your 1968 Airsrtream?

    • MaryJane says:

      Guess I don’t know. Where would I look for that? The title?

      • Mollie says:

        Yes it should be there. What length.
        It looks like a land yacht but not sure.

        If you ever sell let me know. I have 1968 Caravel for sale. Ground up restoration.

        • MaryJane says:

          Ah, yes, a Land Yacht. The sign is still on it. Send me photos of your Caravel! I have the skin off a 1958 Yellowstone right now. I love that a Yellowstone isn’t riveted together but screwed together, even the windows. Easier to work on.
