Trailermade.co – stay, play, park it… Airstream rentals and more

Love this idea!!! Two cousins tired of rising house prices ditch their corporate life to live out of an airstream and start Trailermade, a peer to peer trailer rental company empowering others to rent their trailers out to make extra money and become part of the new mobile community. Trailermade brings you adventure by renting an RV, Travel Trailer, Camper Van, or Destination Spot through community.
