A Wisconsin trailer waves goodbye to the 1970s and sets off for modern territory.

Always up for a challenge, Aaron and Amy Carman went on the hunt for a vintage Airstream trailer to put their design and woodworking skills to the test. After scoring a 1971 Airstream Caravel on eBay, this Wisconsin couple spent four summers refashioning its outdated avocado-hued interior into a bright and modern space. Lightweight materials for easy towing — and a TV and Xbox — helped turn this Airstream into their perfect portable getaway. “I always saw it as a fort for grown-ups,” says Amy.
