Recognizing your strength and using it to help the like-minded is not an easy thing to pull off. However, this husband-wife duo of Ron and Shayna behind Darlin’ Trailers is doing it to perfection. Drawing from their own experience of living in an RV full time, the couple’s now helping new travel trailer adaptors renovate and rework their mobile home for ‘full-time living or vacation adventures.’ Hudson being a tasteful example!
Tasked with the idea of remodeling a vintage 1948 Vagabond travel trailer – developed by Vagabond Coach Manufacturing Company, Michigan, in New Hudson – the Darlin’ Trailers has done the unfathomable! The team recently shared the images of the reworked 23-feet travel trailer – aptly called the Hudson after the original trailer’s birthplace; and if you’re into tiny homes, there is no way you are not going to sit back and appreciate the immaculate use of color, space utilization, and the brilliant overall makeover.
Designer: Darlin’ Trailers
The entire vintage travel trailer has been renovated to meet the requirements of the modern-day lifestyle, which starts with the eye-catching exterior. Graced in a striking matte black finish, the trailer now has a contrasting white roof, while the wood accents on the windows and door enhance the curb appeal. You step right into the hallway wherein your first introduction to affluence is the white interior that complements the back exterior. Walking past the seating unit and the TV on the wall, you reach the living room graced with a sofa set that conveniently transforms into a bed for when residents have a couple of guests over for a night.
The living room of the travel trailer is well lit with natural light. This is possible with the large skylight and similar windows. A curtain separates the living and kitchen – complete with wood cabinetry, countertop, induction cooktop and convection oven – from the bedroom. The bedroom with a raised bed has plenty of storage underneath and features a charging station. Storage requirement is also taken care of by the baskets in the entryway. Usually, remodeled travel trailers tend to compromise on the bathroom facilities; Darlin’ Trailers has however tossed a spa-like bathroom into the equation complete with a toilet, shower, vanity, and lots of storage shelves.
This thematic revival of the vintage travel trailer is really tastefully done reflecting a great deal on the work efficiency and design sense of Ron and Shayna. There is no information about the customer the Hudson has been reworked for, but that’s little deviation from the idea and its appreciation.
