HOLLYWOOD, Calif. and MOSES LAKE, Wash., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- While Virginia Woolf had a room of her own, today's woman also needs her own space – but nowadays, it's in "camper form."

At least that's the way Camper Chicks (http://camperchicks.com) Emilee Moeller and Becky Crowther see it.  On the heels of their appearance on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters, the chicks are taking their latest camper renovation to Washington State for The Piper Barn Show in Moses Lake.

"Women may have bigger homes than they used to, but a sacred personal space of their own seem to be, in comparison, in much higher demand these days," said Moeller.  The Los Angeles-based environmental attorney-turned-actor doubles as producer and show host to combine her love of the big city with her roots in a small farming town in Washington. 

Crowther, whose life path led her in a completely different direction in Utah as a dietitian and mother of four, added, "Glamping up a trailer is a chance to let your creative juices fly in a space that is purposeful yet fun.  I think women, especially, need that," she said.

A little more than a week ago, Moeller and Crowther were featured on a show called Tiny House Hunters, which showcased for the first time, a tiny living option known as "glamping" ("glamorous camping"). 

On November 4th, the Camper Chicks will reveal their next vintage camper renovation "Lu Lu", a 1970 Serro Scotty Trailer.  The Piper Barn Show boasts over 60 vendors of vintage accessories, Christmas decor, upcycled and painted furniture, handmade treasures, and children's items.

"I am excited to see how the Camper Chicks have transformed Lu Lu," says Barn Show director Julie Phipps, who runs the event on her family farm. "Vintage Trailers are timeless and an inspiration for shoppers who like upcycled treasures."

Obsessed with vintage trailers, best friends Becky Crowther and Emilee Moeller became self-professed "camper hoarders" and started renovating their own and other people's trailers. "Camper Chicks" was born, which consists of a blog, YouTube channel and upcoming book devoted to sharing their experiences and tips about camper decorating, renovating, and all things "glamper."
