Small RV Trailer Bathrooms

I’ve got a little bit of a fascination with RV bathrooms. Especially small RV/trailers bathrooms, because I’m intrigued with how to fit in all the things that make a bathroom doable for me… without taking up half the RV. So in this post I’m going to explore some of the options I’ve seen for a …

RV love is like the first sweet blushes of romantic love. It’s all-consuming, its nonsensical, it’s overwhelming. And it’s fickle. But you can’t ignore it and you can’t deny it. There is a sweet little baby that I have been trying to ignore since I started this site. But nobody puts baby in the corner.  Warning: I …

Travel Trailer Renovations - much as I'd love to buy this caravan that's available for sale here in New Zealand, I know that I just don't have the space, money or skills to renovate her. But I still love looking at renovations and dreaming about what can be done.

The idea of renovating or remodeling a travel trailer is less frightening to me because generally a travel trailer is not as expensive as an RV / motorhome. Because I’m not mechanically minded, I have visions of renovating an RV and then finding that the engine has some huge (and expensive) part that needs replacing …

Vintage Trailer Restorations help us to remember a little piece of our history. Check out these lovely restorations of classic old travel trailers. Do you love these too?

Okay, time for something a leetle bit different… this time I’m going to take a look at vintage trailer restorations. I have my reservations about restorations… I only like them when they’re done well. I’m not such a fan of those restorations that just give the interior a sparkling clean, but then don’t improve the …

School bus conversions - when they're done right, they can look oh-so-right! These school bus conversions have taken what is often old, rickety and very much used, and turned it into a beautiful, comfortable and quite large (!) home on wheels.

Some people are born with design flair. They take a rickety old school bus and, somehow, turn it into a beautiful, spacious and even elegant looking home on wheels. I would LOVE to do a school bus conversion, but I know that it is currently out of my skill set and I’m far too afraid …

Airstream Renovations - Renovating a used airstream delivers that perfect RV that has all the features that are most important to you. With some design flair, these homes on wheels are both beautiful and functional.

We don’t have Airstreams here in New Zealand, I’m sad to say. I love the look of the Airstream and it seems like they never lose their style or go out of fashion. And that’s why Airstream renovations are so popular. You can take an used Airstream, totally renovate it with a mind to great …

One of the ideas that my husband and I are toying with, is buying a used van and converting it into a campervan ourselves. I’ve seen lots of sprinter van conversions as well as VWs and even the little minivan conversions; that just get me so excited. It would be a more affordable option for …

I think this post will be the most helpful to all my non-US friends out there; since most of the information and online content seems to come from the USA, there are terms and expressions used all the time, that I’ve never heard in real life here in New Zealand or Australia. So hopefully this will shed …
