Superb Elevated Trailer for Unique Vacation in San Bernardino County, California
"Great experience! Yes, it's small but that's certainly expected in a trailer. Very cozy, with all the confort needed. Absolutely recommended!"
This getaway is perfect for appreciators of historical artifacts and permaculture lifestyles.
The incredible caravan rental is situated near Joshua Tree National Park in San Bernardino County, California, and boasts superb views of east Copper Mountain, making for a unique vacation for up to four guests. The trailer is elevated and guests will need to walk up a short staircase to reach the front door, however, inside, it showcases a charming wooden interior and a delightful vintage décor throughout. There is a cozy bedroom with a double bed and a cool bathroom that has a toilet, a sink, and a tub and shower combo. Linens and towels are kindly provided by the host.
In the living area, glampers will find a comfortable sleeper sofa that can sleep two guests, a television with a VCR and old movies, and a collection of retro items. The kitchen is equipped with an array of cooking and serving utensils and all of the appliances guests might need, such as an oven, a stove, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a coffeemaker. Other amenities include an evaporative cooler, free parking on the premises, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Outside, glampers will have their own private deck, where they can admire the Joshua Tree National Park views, as well as lounge chairs for watching the sunrise or observing the bright night sky. The property features a 35-by-40-foot horseshoe pit with eight horseshoes where glampers can engage in a little friendly competition and there is a nice playground on site for children.
Glampers will be fully immersed in the tranquility of the desert landscape surroundings while still enjoying access to modern amenities and conveniences during their stay. Each of the four vintage trailer retreats are fully furnished and equipped inside and out.
Two of the vintage trailers have an outdoor antique claw foot bathtub to cool off in and all the trailer properties are private with a private patio or a deck. Each trailer has a movie library, a TV, and a sleeper sofa in the living area, while each also has a bedroom with a full bed. Two of the trailers each have a full bathroom with a bathtub and the other two each have a three-quarters size bathroom with a shower.
Each trailer kitchen is equipped with all the comforts of a traditional kitchen so guests can cook meals as they so choose. The trailer decor fits the theme of each trailer with an abundance of local flavor and antiques fitting the original vintage trailer style. The property purposefully features only solar pathway lights to reduce light pollution so glampers can better view the bright night sky.
Other amenities include free parking in a private parking space, complimentary Wi-Fi, heating, and air conditioning/evaporative cooler. The communal area within the grouping of the vintage trailer retreats features a playground for kids and coming soon in the communal area is a Jacuzzi. Guests can book all four trailers if they would like to hold a family reunion or a retreat for up to 16 registered guests or they can book one based on which one is their favorite theme.

Guests should understand that the hosts prefer not to have to impose these charges, so should not ask for early or late arrival/departure and make this an issue.
This is important as the insurance provided only covers guest from their time of check-in and check-out time, so the hosts must insist that guests do not arrive on property early or leave late.
These rules ensure a safe and quiet experience for all guests on the permaculture ranch and also allow ample time for a thorough and complete cleaning and time for any needed maintenance.
