What's Better Than A Hotel Room? Renting A Vintage Trailer

All pictures courtesy Goodness Travels.
Little inspires us more than the thought of a cross-country road trip, especially in one of these vintage beauties. But the problem is owning a trailer isn't always practical, especially if you need to put a lot of elbow grease into fixing it up only to use it once or twice. Enter Goodness Travels, a small, new company that has revamped a 1960s "canned ham" trailer above, and is renting it out so travelers can fulfill their dreams of making road trips look and feel even more cool. A pair of beds inside can sleep two adults or, as the website puts it, "four very close friends" - begging the question, why hasn't anyone thought of this sooner?

The camper, which Goodness Travels has named Honey, can be rented for $104 a night. Maybe not the best accommodation deal out there, especially when compared to Airbnb, but when you factor in the price of traveling in style and not having to worry about where to settle in for the night, it makes sense. Plus, Honey comes with a propane stove, a classic icebox and a sink, meaning guests can save on making meals inside their tiny home on wheels. Right now, the trailer can only be rented close to New Jersey, but here's to hoping more companies around the country catch on.

Check out the cute, cozy inside of the trailer after the jump.
