If you would like to experience what it might be like to live in a tiny house or trailer. Check out Cowgirl Cabins located in one of my favorite places in the country Bend, Oregon. Make a vacation out of this experience and stay in one of their vintage trailers.

Cowgirl Cabins Grand Opening

Each trailer has been carefully selected and given a unique personality by using western decor, paint, and special touches throughout. Also noted is that each trailer has been named after a strong, independent and adventurous historic women.

The experience is a unique camping experience. Being compact you will also camp without power or “boondocks” as most still have their original propane light and icebox. Step back in time and enjoy a simpler life.

As their website states: “Get ready to settle into a simpler time when the coffee actually percolated, books had time to be read, and your surroundings have a chance to bring you a renewed sense of calm and joy.”

    I could live in one of these little doll houses with NO problem! Cozy and inviting!

  2. Great job with making the trailers inviting! It looks as though one could settle into living a good life in one of those! :-)

  3. Wow! These are so cute! Great idea for a wonderful experience :) What a shame it’s on the other side of the ocean…

    Gorgeous. I have a 13-foot Scamp myself that I’ve been working on for the last couple of years (and finally got new bedding and curtains for this summer). I love to see how other people have reimagined their trailers, given them unique personalities. Makes me sad that I had to winterize the Scamp this weekend.

  5. Awesome charming work y’all! I just did my first restoration of a 10′ trailer this spring. Easy to get a soft spot for these little things…

    Fabulous!! I love these little vintage trailers. What a great business idea! I adore my 13′ trailer. I’m also sad that it is time to winterize.

    That’s one good thing about the Gulf Islands, no need to shut down your trailer for the winter, just stock up on the dehumidifying crystals. My old Boler isn’t as cute as these little trailers. What marvellous little works of art.

  8. Here in harrison county,oh. people use trailers for cabins during hunting season.

  9. MJ says:

    Brilliant idea with such a gorgeous use of the trailers. Nice work!

  10. adam says:

    I don’t think they are vintage.

  11. adam says:

    yes, I know. Travel trailers don’t have doorknobs, and a few other things seemed odd. Maybe just practical considerations during restoration, I don’t know. Nice trailers for sure.

  12. These are indeed ‘vintage’ trailers. We purchased them from around the NW and they are all from the 1960′s. They are also my photographs and most of my original script in the article. We enjoyed the process of taking trailers that would easily be passed over and making them into uniquely special little get-aways.

    I would love to own one or more of these to use for Farm Stays on my fiber farm. Are there people who refurbish these trailers and then sell them to others? I’m not handy when it comes to building things. Thanks.

  14. Tracy says:

    These are so cute! They look retro and fresh at the same time. Love the idea. Would love to bring my 7 kids out and rent a few someday.

  15. eileen says:

    thanks so much for sharing this sweeet special way to camp and spend time with family. Maybe someday I will join in on the fun.

  16. Tim says:

    Great job! They look so nicely done.

  17. So inviting! would love a weekend or maybe a week in one of those precious campers with my handwork,
    book and magazine!

    Excellent. I use to own one of these trailers, tear drop shaped, in 1990s. I travelled from North Carolina to North Dakota, and on to the state of Washington with it hitched to my 1976 Cadillac, solo. I loved this small trailer, which I purchased for $200.00 CASH at that time! it was so cozy!!!

  19. Wow those are beautiful! I can live there forever! I like the green one so clean and relaxed. I think I’m gonna save for that!

  20. Jody says:

    Adorable! A friend of mine has rented a couple of these for a family reunion this summer in Sisters! She got them from She is super excited. I might just have to rent the Calamity Jane myself for the Sisters Folk Festival this summer.

    Just love these little gems. My husband and I refurbish vintage trailers. It is a labor of love but so worth it.
