What A Guy And His Girlfriend Did With This Dumpy Old Camper Is Brilliant. And I Want It.


Home improvement projects can be a fun way to 1.) indulge in a hobby and 2.) add something awesome to your home. Mobile home improvement projects are the very same (if not cooler). An incredible couple found a vintage 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman camper and decided to do some light tinkering (let me rephrase, they decided to do some heavy-duty tinkering that would make any carpenter weak in the knees). This is officially impressive.
