We are sure you have heard, camping and “glamping” are hot right now. Booking sites reported that they saw a 400% increase last year over previous years. So of course we had to see what kind of cool retro trailers you can find on sites like Airbnb. From Airstreams to tiny trailers we found plenty of choices for your next camping adventure!
Our first Airbnb find is located right outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and wow is it a beauty! Lovingly known as “The Blueberry”, the Spartan is a step back in time with a touch of luxury added in.
Our second Airbnb isn’t quite as luxurious, but if you are looking to get away from the hustle of the city and are a fan of cool retro trailers, this spot in the Catskills outside of NYC is just for you! It is fully restored inside and sleeps 4. The surroundings look pretty rustic but sometimes that’s just what you need to unwind.
Our next Airbnb find is fondly known as Clementine and is located in Arizona and is perfect if you are looking for a more “roughing it” kind of trip but aren’t interested in sleeping on the ground. Restored and decorated in typical 60s decor this small camper is a step back in time to when campers held just the basics.
Tiny houses are popular on airbnb too. They come in all shapes and sizes and can be found all across the country.
Tucked away in a small mobile home park just two miles from the beach, this 1960’s custom trailer has it all. This one bedroom mobile home comes fully stocked and even includes a chef’s garden full of herbs and vegetables and bicycles for that ride to the beach!
This 28′ foot vintage camper is located right outside of Charleston, South Carolina, only 6 miles from Folly Beach. So if you are looking for privacy and a place that is a little more laid back but still close to the action than this vintage beauty will do the trick!
This 1953 Spartan Imperial Mansion certainly has the WOW factor! The owner did a wonderful job of remodeling the space while keeping the essentials such as the birch walls and ceilings. The addition of a modern kitchen and bath makes this a great find. Located in Austin Texas we could definitely see ourselves staying there!
Our next retro trailers find is located in the Yucca Valley of California and is totally solar-powered. Known as the Joshua Tree Hideaway, this 1951 Spartanette trailer is a beautiful step back in time. The decor is mid-century charming with tons of natural light, the whole space is just charming!
If your travels are taking you to Canada and you are a fan of retro trailers this 35 foot 1951 Spartan caravan in British Columbia is perfect for you. The owners went to great lengths to bring this vintage home back to its original glory and they did a great job.
Our most original Airbnb find comes to us from Terlingua Texas, has been featured on Nat Geo’s documentary show “Badlands, Texas”, and boy is it cool. We will let the pictures speak for themselves!
Our final Airbnb find was featured in Vintage Trailer and Camper magazine as well as Mobile Traveler. Located in Santa Fe New Mexico, this posh 1948 Spartan feels more like a resort than a vintage trailer. Decked out in all white, we aren’t sure this would be a kid-friendly spot but would be perfect for a romantic getaway.
These were just a few of the awesome retro trailers that we came across on Airbnb. As you can tell there is no shortage of cool places to stay.
No matter what part of the country you are in there is no doubt that the options are endless! Have you stayed somewhere cool? Tell us about it in the comments, we would love to hear about your experience.
As always we thank you for reading Mobile Home Living.
