WHAT IF WE SOLD EVERYTHING, BOUGHT A BUS, AND TRAVELED?
Founders Kate Oliver and Ellen Prasse of Austin, TX based The Modern Caravan left their full-time jobs to remodel Airstreams.
In their own words (www.themoderncaravan.com)
What we do.
We offer full design and renovation services for Airstreams and other alternative mobile dwellings, placing emphasis on human connection and relationships, reshaping the concept of home and life. We work hard to embrace imperfection in life while perfecting our craft.
Who we are.
We are a 100% women-owned and run renovation business specializing in full and completely custom renovation services for Airstreams and other timeless caravans. The work, from metal fabrication to delicate linen upholstery, is done with our two sets of hands.
MODERN: of or relating to the present or recent times as opposed to the remote past.
Our chosen aesthetic. Clean, simple, minimal, but more so, we take something dated, often neglected, worn, and broken and transform it into a functional, current, lovely space.
CARAVAN: a vehicle equipped for living in, typically towed by a car and used for vacations.
While our first love will always be the classic vintage Airstream, we’ve never wanted to limit ourselves. We intially wanted to buy a school bus or vintage motorhome. We’ve toyed with the idea of renovating a van! Moving forward, the sky is the limit as we pursue projects that feed our creative souls and push our physical limitations.
