My oh my!! This is one cutie pie pop-up camper! For anyone who finds themselves not interested in towing a fifth wheel, Airstream or other heavier travel trailer, Opera is for you, my friends! The Opera is manufactured by the Netherlands-based Your Suite in Nature (YSIN) and was designed after the Sydney Opera House. This compact beauty has it all~gorgeous design, functionality and ease of transport. Luxurious details of Opera include: stunning teak deck, two electrically adjustable beds that can turn into one, hot air heating, the boiler (8 gallon water tank) supplies warm water to the kitchen, fountain and the exterior shower, ceramic toilet, 9.5 gallon top loading refrigerator, low-energy LED lighting from awning to floor, two cupboards, and a wine storage cabinet as well as baggage and clothing storage.
The Opera is about 1,350 kg (2,973 lbs.) and is available in three color schemes. It’s being sold in Europe and Australia for approximately €27,680 ($36,152) and the company is looking for additional international sellers.

In the Airstream world, there are Airstreams and then there are SOB’s (a.k.a. Some Other Brand). It’s fun to discover new and innovative SOB’s as my niece, Meg Haywood-Sullivan shared with me on Facebook yesterday. Cricket Trailer is a lightweight, economical trailer that comes in two models ~ V-Berth and Folding Couch. The Cricket would be a copacetic weekend getaway trailer for the adventure seeker and towing is uber easy. Garrett Finney, founder of Cricket, combined his work with NASA on the International Space Station and his love for the great outdoors and came up with a flexible small trailer that he could travel with his family and explore the world. Enter, Cricket Trailer!
Just sitting here thinking about how this blog came to be. How did I become so infatuated with Airstreams? I think it started years ago with my love and yearning for travel. Years on the open sea aboard a motor yacht was one way to travel but, now I want to see this great country and all it has to offer in a land yacht (Canada too!!). So, after the RV show in January it all became very clear to me. I appreciate quality, great design and functionality and there is no travel trailer out there that compares to an Airsream. Founded in 1931, Airstreams are handmade in Jackson Center, Ohio. 65% of all Airstreams ever made are still on the road. That is my kind of trailer!
Wanted to share my dream trailer with you~ Airstream 30′ International Serenity. Ahhhh. Love this trailer!! Keeping the dream alive!
The photo of the bedroom is actually the 27′ Serenity but, we want to modify the 30′ with the wrap windows like the 27′. Sweet!!
My heart is and always will be with Airstream but, I do like to share pretty interesting design with you. I had to take a second and third look at this Glamper because it is so different than any travel trailer I have ever seen. Mehrzeller, an Austrian company, has designed and implemented a multicellular caravan to introduce a new generation of mobile living. What do you think about this uber modern design?
