Convert Old Horse Trailers Into Rustic Campers For Yourself

Convert Old Horse Trailers Into Rustic Campers For Yourself

I came across this story on Facebook and I must admit - the idea of repurposing an old horse trailer had never occured to me. When I saw how beautiful the inside was I was in shock. I never imagined it could be so spacious and offer so much.

A man named Fred Cote from Keremeos, British Columbia, purchased this 1970 horse trailer and set about transforming it into a livable space. Wow, what a project.

The walls are lined with birch and there is 1.5" of insulation.

The trailer was gutted, insulated, repainted a cheery yellow, and had a kitchen, on-demand water heater, and dining area added. The dining section can also be transformed into a queen-sized sleeping area as needed!

Are you ready for the big reveal? You know what the outside looks like!

The table folds down to make a 59" Queen bed.

Fred says he "loved the lines of it" and decided to make it his new camping retreat. There is a front man door for access.

Many happy years of enjoyment Fred! It looks amazing.
