The Greenleaf Travel Trailer in 15 Days

This Travel Trailer project was so much fun! I worked on it non-stop nights and weekends for 15 straight days, and I managed to finish it by Christmas. And I learned a lot while working on it. The kit produces a finished trailer that is completely empty on the inside, so the imagination is limitless when planning and designing it. Since my daughter requested a 50's retro style design, it was easy for me to choose a color theme and the accessories. The challenge was the furniture, since afterall it's a travel trailer so typical mini furniture doesn't work. The balance to that was it wasn't a lot of space to fill. I've posted a few photos below, and I'm working on making a short video. Enjoy!

Here are a few photos of the Interior. I added walls to separate the bedroom and bathroom, added upper and lower cabinets in the kitchen area, and built in a couch in the lounge area.

The video I'm making has close up photos of the interior and exterior. There's so many cute little details inside. As with any mini project though, photos can never due it justice. You appreciate them much more seeing it in person.

Now that this project is done, I'll finally be starting The Arthur by Greenleaf. I got a new Dremel tool for Christmas, along with a box of attachments, so the kit bashing I have planned will go much smoother now. I will also be practicing while building The Arthur, because once I'm done with that I'm planning to do The Brookwood by Greenleaf. Mine will be a beach house, of course. I've already started collecting items for it :-)


Thank you for looking!

  1. I LOVE YOUR TRAILER!!! I just uploaded mine (https://youtu.be/3abcy0cvIhE) and wish I had viewed yours first for video tips. Your attention to detail made my heart smile as I so get it! Love the way you reconfigured the layout, your 'vanity', the wastebin, pet food, cracker jacks oh too many to list but all noted. So glad this popped up when I published and your blog looks extremely interesting (now in my Favorites) Happy New Year and on to the next!
