Mom-of-two Gubler also noted that the trailer’s interior was functional, though very “teensy”, as she put it. A small kitchen table dropped down to lay the base for a double bed. And despite the small proportions, four people could sleep inside when a further upper bunk was pulled out.

She even found a way to bring greenery into the space so that planters wouldn’t fall over and spill soil everywhere: a new shelf with individual holes securely held each leafy green that hung over the kitchen table.
