Mid-Century Design is the Star of This Unforgettable 1950’s Vintage Trailer

Mobile homes are our passion and this vintage trailer combines two of our favorite things, mid-century design and a completely restored vintage mobile home. We found this vintage gem on Curbed and it was just too great not to share.

Mid-Century Design Interior

Built in 1958, and boasting a small addition, this is one of the original tiny homes manufactured back when mobile homes were just beginning to become a popular option for full time living. The homeowners did a great job updating this vintage trailer while still leaving many of the original details of the home.

Storage, Storage, Storage

Even though this tiny home is right around 480 square feet, the manufacturer definitely didn’t skimp on the kitchen storage. An abundance of cabinets, though small, can be found in this darling kitchen.

We already know mid-century decor is very popular right now. By making the most of smaller spaces its a perfect decor trick for mobile homes. Clean lines, open floor plans and plenty of natural light are just a few ways to maximize smaller homes.
