I’m sure some of you grew up RVing in a 1950s Shasta camper during the summer months. Well, now your neighborhood birds can camp in the same style. Etsy shop owner jumahl created this birdhouse using retro turquoise accents and corrugated aluminum. Aside from its design aesthetic, the aluminum door is a squirrel deterrent so the birds can eat in peace. I love all the details — including the curved awning, wheels and trailer hitch.

Now if you could only teach the birds how to make S’mores and sing popular camping songs — that would be a sight to see!

    Saw these last year and they were expensive. Was just on vacation in KY and bought one that looked like this for $29. Instead of metal, it was all painted wood. Still pretty cute.

    By the way, they sell these on Etsy for $30-40.
