Restoration vs Renovation
Vintage Restorations of campers centers around taking an old travel trailer, in relatively mint condition and restoring it to the factory original.

Sometimes working with campers that go all the way back to 1928, Flyte Camp have helped countless aficionados and collectors across the world.
Nevertheless, the more commonly requested thing to do in the camper industry is to complete a vintage renovation of a trailer: the process of taking an original vintage coach and customizing both the interiors and exteriors to a customer's specific needs.
Flyte Camp uses their extensive knowledge to create travel trailers that not only still maintains that beloved vintage appeal but that also provides a modern twist.
Mobile Living Room

Flyte Camp does this and more at their studio, taking advantage of the host of the modern materials available to their team. In one prime example of this, Flyte combined old with new in the Spartan Royal Mansion, a mid-sized 1950 travel home.
