A house crush on wheels

A Colorado couple renovated this 1968 Serro Scotty camper to unplug and explore hidden corners of the West. The tiny trailer (it has about 100 square feet of interior space) can fit places many others can’t — and is right at home our beloved category of iconic, retro-yet-fresh campers.

Beam me up, Scotty.

    OHH MYY!! Have you any idea of how inspiring your Retro Scotty is?! Brilliant job!!
    We since one week own a totally different Caravan (we are in the Netherlands-yes really..) and the retro coushons with the aqua caramel and brown are sooo amazing! Would you be willing to tell me were you found the fabric? I have been searching everywhere and even want it in our house and babyroom..
    The Caravan will be your same sort of style, combined with gold and silver accents (yes: Glamping is the idea..) thank you so much for sharing!

    Fabulous restore!! We have a 1967 highlander that needs a facelift but I don’t know where to begin. Did ya’ll have to tear it down to the base and start with all new plywood and work your way up? Or were you able to make it look that beautiful with cosmetic finishes?

    A whole table has 10 avid gamers, so even when you folded every hand
    in a round, it would only cost you 1. 5 times the low limit There
    was clearly a single gamer, however, who has been in fact technological regarding it.

    I have had a problem find as good of a deal on one of these, since this article was published, bummer. But thanks Aislyn for the wonderful inspiration!

    For a great resource on finding, fixing and re-imagining these classic Serro Scotty trailers, go to http://www.nationalserroscotty.org. We just purchased a 1964 Scotty Sportsman two days ago, and are prepping to begin a restoration; your article offers both ideas and inspiration! Tim V., Stockton, CA

      Thanks Tim! Good luck with the renovation – and stay tuned, we’ll have plenty more camper inspiration in the future.

    Photo’s much better here. Why did the magazine show the interior like in a fish bowl?

    Baaa! Loving this. On my running route each morning I see this vintage camper that is in need of a makeover. Since it hasn’t moved in like 2 years I think maybe I can give them a low ball offer 🙂

      Glad you liked it! If you go for it, send us pictures. 😉

    I’ve always dreamed of doing this–crossing the country slowly in a camper. What an amazing experience! The camper seems like just the right size for me on my solo travel adventures. Thanks so much for sharing this!

    • Aislyn Greene

      We’re so glad it inspired you! Think half the staff here is ready to run off into the night with one of these campers in tow. 😉

    Very cute! And this article inspired me to paint my interior when I’d been so worried about maintaining the “originality.” I own a 1967 Aristocrat LoLiner and it is very similar to the Scotty. I am having a blast fixing up the interior and my husband has been working his butt off to learn “all about wiring”. I can’t say he’s having as much fun as me. She needs a new axle too. Just remember, like with a vintage car, it’s always going to be “a project”. If you’re into that, and have time for it, great. But don’t rush into it… learn a little first. It looks awesome, but it’s not for the faint of heart!

      Very good point. We imagine these are very much labors of love! Feel free to send us photos when you’re done with the renovation, we’d love to see it.
