The first photo featured a dark green antique trailer inside a warehouse. It had rust and chipping wood throughout the design. You could also see the white curtains in the windows. In the next photo, Mike shot a photo of the inside of the camper, which was renovated into a lovely little room.

There was a long white curtain, which offers privacy while sleeping. There was a bed next to the window that looked outside. The quaint bedroom also had a closet with a lamp on top of it. The next few shots showed the other areas inside the camper. There was a place to read and cook a meal.
