    Why not camp out or road trip this summer in one of the coolest vintage campers around? Airstream camper vans are hot and can still be found for a good bargain if you’re willing to put in a little work — and even add some stylish camper van decor.

    An Airstream looks like a silver bullet and was first introduced in 1936. But it took a good 20 to 30 years before it reached its peak of popularity in the late ’50s and ’60s.

    Enthusiasts have been collecting these vintage campers for some time now and refurbishing the interiors to function for the 21st century. Nowadays, camper vans are used for “glamping,” as mobile offices, a guest house in the backyard or even an Airbnb rental. Those who love the tiny house movement will appreciate the vibe of these tiny homes on wheels.

    Here are some of the coolest camper van interior remodels that transform vintage campers into the ultimate contemporary road trip trailer.
