What This Guy Did With A 1967 Airstream Will Make You Entirely Jealous
Many people dream of hitting the open road in a tricked-out camper, but few people actually do it.
But when Reddit user Jomini777 got the opportunity to go to school across the country, he decided to make one of his other dreams come true. He bought an old Airstream trailer and began taking it apart. The plan was to bring it to school with him and have it serve as his very own dorm room. After that, who knows where the road would take him.
You’re going to be so jealous when you see how it turned out.
From the outside, the 1967 Airstream didn’t look half bad, but inside was a different story.
It clearly showed its age.
The space was cramped and the furnishings were worn.
So he parked it in his yard and got to work.
He removed some walls…
Already it was looking more open.
After shifting some things around, he managed to get all the kitchen cabinets on one side. This helped the inside feel more functional.
In preparation for a new paint job, he patched up holes and covered key pieces.
Then he added new flooring! During the same day, he installed new countertops.
The windows were covered…
And everything was painted white! It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do for a space…
It’s like new!
A wine refrigerator was added to the camper and Jomini777 built a spot for a washer/dryer.
He even had room for a little desk.
Here’s the entrance…the curtains really make it welcoming.
And the remodeled futon. He picked out new fabric for the seating area.
You’d never guess this was a camper from the 1960s.
The foldout table will work well for entertaining or just eating meals.
And the kitchen looks so modern.
Jomini777 still plans to add some other things like molding and wants to replace the lighting fixtures.
What a difference!
