Situated in sunny Santa Barbara, California, AutoCamp, an outdoorsy outpost of restored trailers in a former RV park near downtown offers a mobile home away from home.
Designed by local architect Matthew Hofmann, AutoCamp's five (soon to be 10!) revitalized Airstreams provide a spot to bunk just 3 miles from West Beach. You'll find all the conveniences you could need within each trailer's compact, roughly 200-square-foot quarters, including cable television, bathrooms with recycled glass tile, a fully equipped kitchen, and sleeping accommodations for up to four. Of course, you'll likely be spending most of your time outside, lounging in an Adirondack chair, cooking dinner over the electric grill or taking advantage of the complimentary bikes for carefree beach cruisin'.
Take a peek inside one of these modern luxury trailers, for which rates start at $144 per night:
The thoughtfully designed kitchen in the Deluxe Queen Suite — a 31-foot-long 1964 trailer — features just enough nooks and crannies to tuck away essentials. And yes, that sofa pulls out into a double bed.)
Fresh, clean-lined design with high-impact accents is the name of the game in the Deluxe Queen Suite's bedroom, with all-white walls, understated lighting and preppy pillows.
