Mandi, the founder of Vintage Revivals, has tackled tons of projects over the years, each one better than the last. One of her most recent projects was giving a 1973 Bell travel trailer named “The Nugget” a new life.

This cute little 1973 Bell travel trailer, aptly named “The Nugget,” is a great vintage travel trailer restoration story. The interior may have started with a typical 1970’s dark and depressing decor, it sure didn’t end that way.

Mandi managed to snag this cutie by keeping tight watch online and looking locally till she finally found her little nugget on Craigslist.

As with any vintage travel trailer restoration, there was some slight structural damage that had to be repaired first.

Mandi goes into detail about the entire restoration process at Vintage Revivals.

After Mandi’s Vintage Travel Trailer Restoration

All of the changes that Mandi made during her vintage travel trailer restoration really paid off.

The finished vintage travel trailer restoration is something you have got to see to believe. She took an outdated 1970’s trailer decor and made it into a mobile piece of art.
