Escape to Austin and stay in a newly renovated 60s Camper in the heart of all the hip East ATX action. One mile from downtown, even closer to the legendary East-side food trucks and eateries like Franklin BBQ, Qui, LaV, Contigo & East Side King.
NOTE: If dates are shown as available, don't hesitate to instant book. I keep my calendar up to date. If the dates are not available, message me because I have several other listings.
Stay for a long weekend while you visit Austin, or make this your landing spot while you get permanently settled in Austin.
This newly remodeled 60's trailer is the perfect escape to the quintessential Austin experience but will all the modern amenities. The trailer has a full bed, internet, air conditioning/heat, mini-fridge, and 3-in-1 breakfast center (coffee, griddle, toaster oven). Next to the trailer is a shed that is being converted to bathroom with a private outdoor shower with hot water.
The trailer is on a lot with a house that is also available as an Airbnb rental. If you only rent the trailer you will have access to the trailer, bathroom, patio, and free parking in the back of the house. I also have bikes that are available for use. Prior to your arrival, I will provide you with the location to retrieve keys to the camper.

I have lived in East Austin for 12 years and love the thriving artist, urban gardening, DIY community. The neighborhood is within close proximity to downtown, South Austin, UT and all the other hip central places to visit.
East Austin is where you will find amazing food, all kinds of art, music, DIY house shows, loose chickens and wylie and friendly neighbors to talk to. Airbnb has a great East Austin neighborhood guide. Check it out: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/austin/east-downtown

Leave the camper as you found it. Respect the neighbors and guest renting house. If you smoke, do it outside.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and Angel made it a pleasant one. She was very accommodating and the description of the place was spot on. I was in town for a conference and this was super convenient to get to, easy to find, park, etc.
Tucked away behind the main house, this happy little camper provided just the perfect stay in Austin! Exactly as the listing mentions, Angel provides everything you need to enjoy the camper - towels, sheets, coffee, and a really sweet record player with a great selection of records to enjoy. The AC unit works (email hidden)d there is an excellent supply of hot water in the outdoor shower!
If you can, I would recommend getting there with some daylight to spare so that you can turn a light on to come home to. (There is light outside the shed with the toilet and sink.)
Angel was very quick to respond and a delightful host! We will definitely be back!
quirky property, everything you will need for a pleasant overnight stay.
My boyfriend and I loved staying in the Happy Camper over Presidents Day weekend. It was adorable, clean, exactly as pictured, and a great place to stay in Austin.
Check in/out was super easy even with our weird arrival and departure times (late evening and very early morning). The camper is pretty small, but we put our suitcases in the bathroom/shed which made a great storage and changing area.
We loved listening to the Rolling Stones record on the record player. We spent a lot of time on East 6th St - eating, going to bars, exploring the farmer's market, going to thrift stores, drinking coffee - and the camper was a convenient 1 mile from that area. We also took the bus a couple times and you can catch the 2 or the 6 within blocks from the camper.
There is a nice metal fence around the whole property so it feels very secure. We had a great time, Angel was a great host, and we can't wait to return to Austin!
Great location. So close to downtown! After staying in several AirBNB airstreams, this is, by far, the coolest one. Great backyard area for hanging out. The outdoor shower was a great addition. I definitely recommend staying here to anyone interested in a unique, fun experience!
Angel was able to accommodate us on very short notice, and provided a lovely little escape for our impromptu visit to Austin. The camper was lovely and well outfitted. I officially want both her 3-in-1 breakfast appliance, and her tiny heater. Very efficient. Thanks so much!

I love sharing my home with friends and strangers alike. I've lived in Austin for 13 years and am happy to point you to spots off the beaten path (Cathedral of Junk) to the sparkling jewels in the middle of the city (Barton Springs). I'm a User-Experience Designer for a Clean Tech/Energy Management start-up. I love the challenge and rewards of conserving in all aspects of life. I enjoy bike riding, brewing and drinking craft beer, gardening, petting my chickens, sewing and DIY projects, seeing live music, traveling, and eating great food. I've only been to 13 countries and 25 states. I most recently spent a few months in Hawaii living off grid on a living farm that is doing reforestation on the Big Island.
