Tour this renovated travel trailer perfect for a family of 3
After an ugly divorce and a lot of built-up debt, Amy knew she wanted to create a life that was free of the weight of constantly owing someone. It was also important for her to take care of and be there for her young children.
Tiny living was her answer. Could it be yours?
We’re super excited to be touring their renovated travel trailer today and hope it inspires you in some way. I especially love the details she’s added to her kid’s bedroom, it feels like a magical place for imaginations to wander.
Let’s dive into the tour!

Check out the interview below to learn more about Amy’s renovation:
How long did it take you to remodel your RV/Camper?
It took me one month of almost nonstop work on the camper to renovate the space.
How much did you spend on the renovation?
Including new mattresses, furniture, and decor…. I probably spent about $3000 on renovation costs. (Flooring was definitely the most costly)
Did you do everything yourself, pay a professional or do a mix of both?
I did almost every part of the reno myself. My mom helped me with painting <3
What is your favorite project or piece of decor and why?
My favorite part of a reno is always the decorating haha making a house a home is definitely so much fun to me. My favorite part of it all is definitely my kid’s room. Its the first time that it was a space that was mine that I could do whatever I wanted to, and I’m super happy with the way it turned out.
What was your least favorite project and why?
THE BATHROOM. It took so much more work to renovate such an ittie bittie space.
What was most challenging about your renovation?
The most challenging was the painting. It took so many layers to really cover what was underneath.
What project made the most difference in the space?
The floors for sure. The yucky carpet that had been in the space before really made the space feel so much smaller. As soon as it was a consistent flooring throughout, it really opened the space up.
What do you enjoy most about your space following the transformation? Is there a specific area you spend most of your time?
I love that my kids love it. They love that its theirs. They love that they can play and do whatever they wish in their room and that its easy to clean up.
Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?
I have to pick one? haha Home Goods, Target, and Wayfair were my go to’s
What’s your favorite tiny home hack?
I don’t know if its considered a hack but making sure that every piece of furniture has more than one purpose. The couch is a sleeper, the ottoman is our toy box, the table folds out to become larger and has inner storage for plates and place mats… its always really important that you’re thinking of purpose in everything you put in your home.
What piece of advice would you give people starting an RV/Camper renovation?
It’s going to take more time and more money than you might think to complete your renovation. Expect the unexpected to pop up at some point, but keep the end goal in mind.
What’s your favorite aspect of tiny living?
It only takes about 15 minutes to deep clean the whole thing haha that is a lifesaver when you’re a single mom with two toddlers.
What is something you’ve learned in general or about yourself since going tiny?
I don’t need much to be happy. I don’t want lots of things or a big home. Even if I had a ton of money I definitely desire to live simply so I can have bigger adventures with my family.
What has been your favorite place to explore so far during your journey?
As I said, we are stationary. However, thanks to going tiny we were able to go on a cruise together for the first time.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Downsizing doesn’t always mean sacrificing things you love. In fact, I think it allows you the opportunity to focus more on what you love.
