Airstream trailers are currently enjoying their biggest boost in popularity since their heyday in the mid-20th century.
With a little time, money and elbow grease, more and more people are buying up the vintage silver trailers and bringing them back to their glory days. Matthew Reader has become an expert at restoring Airstream trailers and recently sold his latest project to a winning bidder on eBay. Once you see the inside of this beauty from 1966, you’ll wish you were the lucky winner.
As soon as you walk in the door, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time. Yellow cabinetry is accented by cushions and accessories throughout the trailer, which mixes well with the dark wood trim and cabinets. Reader uses a mixture of vintage pieces and materials with contemporary design elements to make the space appear homey without feeling too old.
In the kitchen area, the appliances have been updated to work with our modern lifestyles, but still fit perfectly with the retro vibe.
Although this cool home on wheels has already sold for $21,000, it’s a good example to reference if you want to try your hand at restoring an Airstream of your very own.
