Giving up your home to live in a 1972 Aistream Overlander trailer isn't for everyone, but Gabi and Brandon Fox aren't exactly a typical couple.

The pair roam the Pacific Northwest working as wedding photographers, and they travel in style in their aluminium trailer, which they renovated themselves.

The project started back in 2015, when the couple picked up the trailer for just $6,500. With a little over $13,000 spent on renovations, the entire cost of their tiny home was around $20,000.

But it took a lot of elbow grease to turn the Airstream from a rusty mess to a genuine tiny home.

The couple say they learned how to do plumbing and electrical work from online articles, YouTube videos, and "a lot of trial and error."

The trailer's design itself (which was also done by Gabi and Brandon) includes all the amenities of a regular home, and lots of storage space to make up for the cramped quarters.

I never thought I would say this, but after seeing the finished product I'd gladly swap my home for theirs.
