Wish You Were Here Custom Dollhouse Trailer

"Wish You Were Here" is a trailer dollhouse I made from scratch. It's 1/12 scale(1 inch scale).
Overall length is 22" with the hitch post(trailer housing is 18 1/2") x 10" wide x 12 1/2" tall.
The colors are white and aqua on the exterior. The photos are not picking up the accurate color of the aqua. It has a touch more green in the blue than on the pictures.
I made a template for the form of the camper. And the front and back roofs are very thin veneer woods. This is how you can achieve a curve.
It has a coin cell battery and switch hidden under the birdhouse on the roof.
The little bike comes from Hobby Lobby. I primed it and painted it.

Happy Trails!


  1. Oh, my goodness! This is the kind of miniaturing I love. Creative, imaginative. Who would have ever imagined a luxury camper!

  2. ¿Quién no querría vivir en un sitio tan encantador? Estupendo diseño.

  3. Oh Caroline!!! Wish i was small enough to live into this trailer!! It s soo beautiful, it was yur fingerprint indeed.

  4. Oh I love these. We had a little camper once. A friend has it now. I'd love to have it back and hire you to shabby chic it. Wouldn't it be cute. Hubby is hunting now is his 26 footer; I should give it a make over this winter! These trailers are so cute. I have two more house projects to do and then perhaps a trailer. Love them. Best part: the sign
