Get your dream caravan renovation.


We’re pretty in love with our little caravan. It took a lot of planning, hard work, and a lot of long weekends. The final product is beyond what we imagined, and we want to share the caravan love!

Ed Martin, Co-Founder of The Palmetto, is a carpenter by trade. Before opening the food truck, Ed had his own carpentry business called Drift Carpentry Co. However, he is now offering up his carpentry skills for caravan renovations for anyone who is interested. The possibilities are endless! Here are some cool ideas for a renovated caravan:

  • Food truck or mobile bar for weddings & events

  • Mobile Hair Salon or Mobile Barber Shop - Pull up to your clients’ homes or post yourself up at markets & events.

  • Mobile Clothing Boutique - You can even have a dressing room and mirror. Perfect for bringing to markets and festivals.

  • Mobile Mani/Pedi Bar - Bring your nail salon service straight to your clients. Perfect for parties & events!

  • Unique Airbnb - Perfect for making extra profit

So, how does it work?

Getting your concept down

First, we’ll have an initial conversation to get your concept down. We can decide on what you’ll need installed from electricity, water, style and everything else in between. We can even add on marketing services from logos, website creation & more from other Palmetto Co-Founder, Lindsay Russell.

Finding the perfect caravan

Either you can have a caravan in mind, we can guide you on what type of caravan to purchase, or we can source the caravan for you.


The renovation

We’ll send drafted plans for your caravan with measurements and design scopes. Once the design is agreed upon, Ed will provide a full quote. Once the quote is approved, Ed and his network of tradesmen will get to work on your caravan.


We’ll update you along the way with images. If you ever have questions or adjustments to make, we’ll be here for you!


Pricing completely varies on your business type, amount of work needed on the caravan, and a ton of other factors. We do offer payment plans and may accept credit card payments too. A caravan reno can range anywhere from $5,000 for a renovated “shell” to $15,000+.


We are based in the Coffs Coast region of Australia. We also offer caravan renovations for those living in NSW, Queensland and Victoria with availability for pick-up or delivery.
