Ever since renting a teardrop camper a few years ago, we have been in love with the idea of restoring and renovating a vintage camper. When Covid hit, we finally decided to make the purchase and begin renovation. After many hours of work, Lil Miss North is now ready to hit the road and be enjoyed by families all over Minnesota.
1968 Forester 17-t. Our 'up north' themed restored vintage camper has plenty of her original charm but has been updated with modern updates to keep her comfortable!

About the host, Nic and Steph
We had a wonderful time with lil miss North at a camping wedding! She was the perfect size!
Our family of 5 (2 grownups, 6 and 3 yr old daughters and dog) had a blast in Lil Miss North! We took her to William Obrien State Park and used her to the full extent. Drizzly and chilly weather kept us inside enjoying her to her fullest with many games, laughs, meals and fun. She is a perfectly imperfect cutie...everything works you need (heat, stove top, fridge, coffee pot, toaster) and slept us all great. The top bunk was handy for kids sleeping and also storing our things we didn't want to trip over. This was our first go at an actual camper (we usually tent) and Steph and Nik were great at explaining everything so we knew how to use it. We have a Ford Edge without the tow package and it pulled it just fine (did drive another car to be safe and carry the heavy gear). If someone is looking for the fancy camper with a working toilet and not having to work a little with old joints/quirks then you'll need to look elsewhere. If you are looking for adorable charm and memories with some character (and a camper that naturally makes for fun conversation with neighbor campers), then this is for you! We will remember this family adventure forever!

Lil Miss North was everything we hoped for, and Steph and Nic were great. This 50 year old trailer has a few quirks, but that adds to the charm. There was plenty of room for us and our 15 yr old. We took the trailer out in October and the heater kept us toasty during a snow day. The beds were comfy after long hikes. Steph checked in with us to make sure everything was okay, and was very easy to work with when our travel plans changed. I highly recommend Lil Miss North.
So great to hear that you and your family had a great Up-North adventure in Lil Miss North! Thank you for the great review - we hope to see you again in the future!

We had a great time with Little Miss North. It has a cute up north vintage style and is really homey inside. Plenty of nice little touches. The main bed is small (full size) but really comfy. There are pots, pans etc, but all the silverware was disposable plastic, and the plates were also disposable. Yes, it saves on water because the sink isn’t hooked up (which we knew) but I didn’t like throwing all that stuff in the trash. We had booked a campsite a while back and then realized the weather would be really cold, so we rented this trailer to stay warm, which I communicated to the host. But, when my husband picked it up they said they have never used the heat all night so my husband was worried about turning it on and the first night we froze. The second night I insisted on heat and it was fine and toasty in there. In all, this is a great little camper!
Thank you for your review, Laura! We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Lil Miss North and are happy to hear that the furnace kept you toasty all night long - we will definitely communicate that to future renters :) We will also provide non-disposable silverware in the future. We appreciate your input and are so glad you enjoyed your time!
