A artistic couple who adore the outdoor remade a cattle trailer into a oppulance campervan so they could enjoy romantic weekends away.

Product engineer Sam and his partner Jessica, who live in Yorkshire, bought the automobile once used to ride up to 4 cows at a time for £4,000 at auction.

They set aside a £10,000 bill to compensate for a high-end refit of the 4m by 2m space, but finished up striking out an additional £5,000 over the 3 months it took to finish their work of adore project.

The couple’s tour was followed by George Clarke in the return of his Amazing Spaces series, which suggested the finished results of their design; including a pizza oven, a kitchenette, a double bed and dining list all squeezed in to the tiny space.

Originally means to ride up to 4 cows, the trailer was the ideal structure to lift the weight of a oppulance – despite petite – home-on-wheels.  

Sam propitious the trailer accurately to his own pattern with the help of his father Colin, adding in dear custom-made windows in the slats that once supposing air holes for travelling cattle.

It was a dear pursuit as Jessica suggested the windows alone done a poignant hole in the couple’s £10,000 bill before they’d scrupulously started.

The back opening was propitious with a doorway and a covering that folds down to act as a decking area when the weather is fine. 

The cattle trailer was creatively used to ride cows, but the couple saw it had intensity to be a campervan

The steel trailer valid clever adequate to hold a record burner with a pizza oven, as good as an extended cantilever bed that sits above 3 shifting straight drawers; any of which serves an critical purpose.

Sam’s nifty, space-saving pattern incorporates a dedicated space for food storage, one that pulls out to form a dining table, and a third propitious with a convenience battery to yield energy and some-more storage.   

Sam splashed out on fancy French ash joist herringbone flooring.
