Vintage Camper DIY Project

How do you like a little DIY ?

Personally I love all sorts of tinkering and DIY projects. I`ll make sure to share with you my next DIY gaming chair when it’s finished but until then – here’s another threat.

Check out what this couple did to this vintage camper.

The floor too, so they took it down and started by freshening up the trailer frame and repainting it.

Next up – the new walls had to be cut out and the window and door frames traced in them.

Once the walls where ready comes the time for it to start coming together. The appliances are there to measure the proper places for them and the shelves and cupboards.
