See Our Bunkhouses in Action!
Our bunkhouses started right here among the tassels of Iowa as a solution for Bikes To You's RAGBRAI In-Style Charter Service. Now known under the name Iowa's Own, the charter still relies on Iowa-Built Bunkhouses year after year for this incredible ride.
Our drop deck trailer conversions use the multi-level structure and higher ceilings to accommodate your conversion needs better. Taking a drop deck van trailer, we assess and address any structural or environmental condition issues on the trailer before going to work inside to create an Iowa-Built space.
Our dry van conversions are our most popular model to date. Taking a standard dry van, we assess and address any structural or environmental condition issues on the trailer before going to work inside to create an Iowa-Built space.
We select our new gooseneck trailers with low-ride height and tall ceilings as a top priority. These trailers come to us straight off the factory line. However, we still do a full inspection before any interior construction begins.
We offer various options for our bunkhouse remodel and renovations, and we will work on any brand of bunkhouse! Please use the link above to find out what we can do to help your bunkhouses continue to serve you.
We have a variety of plumbed amenities available for our trailer conversions and our new build trailers. These amenities include showers, sinks, washers and dryers, small dishwashers, and water heaters, among most other amenities one could want.
Here at Iowa-Built, any idea for an option, feature, or function can be a reality on your trailer. Can't find the kind of custom-built trailer you're looking for? Our people will go straight to the drawing board to make your dream a reality.
What sets Iowa-Built bunkhouses apart is our origins in what became our Conventional Construction Techniques. Iowa-Built's commercial and residential construction background influenced both the techniques and materials used in our bunkhouses. When we set about converting our first dry van, we recognized that the materials used in many bunkhouses were borrowed from the RV and Camper industry and didn't stack up to our standards for longevity and structure. While on the opposite end of the spectrum, we found that the more robust and durable offerings present a more industrial and desolate space behind a steep price tag. Finding a middle ground in the market, we applied our background in construction. We built our bunkhouses using sensible, homier livable touches that can be easily refurbished and continually updated throughout the lifespan of your bunkhouse.
The Iowa-Built Recepe
All Iowa-Built bunkhouses are built right here in Grinnell, Iowa using real treated 2x4s and solid wood finishing and trim. We use these materials because of their tried and true legacy in almost every home and business in America.
The Iowa-Built Conventional Construction Techniques center around natural materials and take shape with our proprietary Solid Shell assembly system, which ensures consistent and robust structure as a foundational feature of Iowa-Built bunkhouses.
The reliable solid structure of Iowa-Built bunkhouses receives an interior boost as the wall frames are electrified, insulated, and finally sealed behind solid wood panels and finishing trim. The solid wood walls, shelves, and bedframes allow for an easy two-step refinishing process on all surfaces.
Comfortable, Liveable Touches
The functional features of our bunkhouses culminate to create some of the most comfortable bunkhouses on the market today. We understand that our bunkhouses will provide a home away from home for so many people, which is why we emphasize using more comfortable materials and surfaces to establish a sense of comfort while the bunk is your home.
