1947 Refurbished Robin Hood Travel Trailer
See how a vintage 1947 Robin Hood camper was gutted and completely restored, inside and out.
The camper was stripped down to the frame for a complete makeover.
The camper was outfitted with new axels, wheels and tires as well as a brand new shine.
The kitchen cubby was mostly intact, but was looking more than a little worn and weathered.
To save money and time, the cabinets' frame was left intact.
Anna and Justin restored the original sink and ice box but added a new countertop, cabinet doors, water-holding tank and a pump.
Anna and Justin incorporated their client’s vintage light fixture above the sink. It helps reflect the refreshed chrome shine.
The door was falling apart and in need of refinishing.
The new Marmoleum floor and resurfaced doors bring this camper into the 21st century, but with a classic retro style.
Before: Dining Area
The dining area was non-existent. Justin and Anna had to rebuild the sofa/convertible bed.
After: Dining Area
The new booth provides plenty of seating and room to kick back. The wall sconces give an amibient glow for dining or task lighting for reading. The dining table is covered in stainless-steel to match to the kitchen.
When the dining table is folded down and cushions spread out, there is plenty of room for a good night's rest.
The old window and walls look worn and layered with soot.
The walls have been resurfaced with Douglas fir and a new window will provide natural air flow.
To make this space more functional, Anna and Justin planned for some vertical storage.
Wall shelves provide extra storage.
The exterior of the camper was dull and boring before Anna and Justin polished it to a mirror shine.
Custom window awnings with fabricated hardware add character and charm to the 1947 camper.
