Converting an old, retro vehicle into a new, modern home isn't necessarily something new, yet Matthew Hofmann has managed to do just that with a beat-up 1970's Airstream trailer. Instead of letting this vintage vehicle dictate how he was going to update and re-design it, he let his contemporary tastes take hold in order to create a clean, minimalist space that ended up complementing the outer metal walls beautifully.

Matthew Hofmann downgraded from a big house a couple of years ago to this small trailer in order to begin leading a simpler life. Matthew Hofmann spent just under $20,000 to renovate his trailer, but it is a fully functional living space that is mobile as well. Stats for Vintage Trailer Homes Trending: Older & Buzzing
