How we turned a vintage camper into a resource on wheels

We bought this 1969 Coachmen Middy Camper in late August of last year. Over the last five months we have completely transformed this 9ft travel trailer into the Humble Treasures mobile store.

The camper was clearly in rough shape when we got it. With it being over 40 years old, it had seen better days. The camper required a complete overhaul which included: gutting the entire interior, removing the interior walls, insulation, new sub-floor & flooring, full electrical wiring, extensive body work, and exterior paint, new roof, new door, and much more.

Below are a few before/after pictures, just before we put the finishing touches on it for the big reveal.

We ran into quite a few delays and major bumps along the way, but that's just part of the story! The mobile store was a definitely a labor of love and it's was all worth it, because we can serve people at community partner locations and eliminate the barriers of transportation and accessibility for those in need.

This was probably one of the most challenging projects ever!  However, we didn't give up on it; even though....there were times it ran through our minds. Ultimately, we saw the potential, and with lots of hard work, patience, persistence, and the help of some awesome people we were able to completely transform it into our mobile Treasure Market. 

We revealed the camper during our Humble Treasures Launch Party a few weeks ago where guests had the chance to tour the camper and learn about the process from start to finish.

 

We are grateful to the friends that helped us complete this project. We could not have done it without you!
