Vagabond Gypsy trailer before & after!

Howdy kittens! So many of you know we pulled this lil gem out of the snow in Utah a few months ago & It was such a whirl-wind to get her campable for my fist sisters on the fly trip that I didn't post before and after pictures! I've gotten some emails askin me to do here I go!!! Thank you to all of ya for givin a rooten tooten!;)
Oh my I forgot how bad it was! But I loved her from the moment I saw her! So much damage and lots of weird wall paper...wires everywhere! But the amazing molding just took my breath away!!!!!
Adding in the new wood was thankfully just ply wood! A lot less work than my pink trailer! 
Gutted the front and daddy-o built in a couch with lots of storage! See the shutters !!!!! Omg!!!!! I thought I have them everywhere in my house why not in my Gypsy trailer! So I was on the hunt for them to fit! I have to be honest daddy-o didn't see my vision but did them any way! Now it's one of his favorite parts!
This was the day when the paint dried & doors got put back on...I hung that vintage picture frame with her name right away! Inspiration each time I worked on her:)
Ok so once more before...
My junkie kitchen:) which I collected all that cute junkie stuff for this trailer for years! All the vintage silver & metal mirrors
My side table:) an old vintage vanity...& my junkie oven...actually came that way...the lil old lady who owned her I truly think had my same vision...she had tubs of junkie gody metal goods waiting to be installed:) it found me I truly believe!
To my front couch ...
My vintage wings I bought at the urban barn in sconce chandlers I bought there as well...table from the vintage market place...but I have since found another coffee table at the Salvation Army:)
This end table was from my mother gifted to my daughter and then found its home in my trailer with a fresh coat of paint:)
Now the vanity I've had for years I actually put it by my trash can curbside a few months ago then thought bring it back in...couldn't believe daddy-o got it to fit right in!!
My oven!
So that's my girl I'm still working on the bathroom & I still have the tin to put on the roof which I think will be amazing! I'm looking for copper:)
Oh I forgot take a look at this...So above the beds is a door & it has a fan...thought it was so cool! Pull Down the door and cool off!
Any way thanks for all the interest and wonderful comments & emails...she truly is special:) til next time happy trails!!

Omg that looks frikkin amazing!! Great job u guys done with her! Not really MY style, but it really looks great. Fits u well :)
The american trailers really is something special. We have a 1070s norwegian BjĂžlseth wich is in perfect original condition, but ofcourse our dream is to import a streamline, if u find obe here in norway it costs around 50000$

This is so much better than the airstream I spent summers in a kid. I would easily live here!
