The Trailer

We spent months converting our 1969 Cardinal Deluxe trailer into the shop of our dreams. It was gutted, re-paneled, the floor was lowered and we added clothing racks and space for merchandise. Check out Wanderlust, Portland's first traveling shop on wheels!

Interested in our experience building out our trailer? Here's an interview where we answer some questions. We're not professionals in trailer restoration, we suggest asking a local RV place or trying Craigslist if you need your trailer worked on.


  1. I just have to say how incredibly jealous I am of you! It is my dream to one day open up a mobile shop such as this in Canada! I love everything about your shop and I am SO glad I came upon your site/shop :) Keep up the great work. It's inspiring to see my dreams are actually possible!

  5. Wow! I think I've fallen in love with wanderlust.
    Eventually I'd love to convert a boler trailer into a mobile feminist library but it will just have to be a pipedream for now.
    You've done this so successfully!! I wish I could see it in person. Come to Australia!
