Many people dream of hitting the open road in a tricked-out camper, but few people actually do it.

But when Reddit user Jomini777 got the opportunity to go to school across the country, he decided to make one of his other dreams come true. He bought an old Airstream trailer and began taking it apart. The plan was to bring it to school with him and have it serve as his very own dorm room. After that, who knows where the road would take him.

You're going to be so jealous when you see how it turned out.

From the outside, the 1967 Airstream didn't look half bad, but inside was a different story.

You can go super modern with camper remodels…or you can do what this couple did with theirs. They took an old, boring van and turned it into a colorful, fun space!
