The Long Yellow Trailer - at the Terlingua Ghost Town

Bedrooms 1
Property type mobile home
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

The Long Yellow Trailer is a vibrantly decorated and fully remodeled mid-century modern caravan located on the edge of the famous Terlingua Ghost Town. Close enough to enjoy all the excitement, entertainment, art, atmosphere, dining, and drinking opportunities of the Ghost Town. Just far enough away for privacy and solitude.

Decorated with bright colors, local art, and stylish furnishings, the Long Yellow Trailer is a happy home away from home for travelers from Texas, across the continent, or across the oceans. It’s a great home base when visiting the Ghost Town, the River, the Big Bend parks, or other local attractions. Unlike a cheap hotel, or run down rental, the Long Yellow Trailer will be a big hit on your favorite social media site or personal blog.

With a cozy full size bed nook plus a folding couch in the sitting area the Long Yellow Trailer can comfortably sleep two or three people. Brand new modern bathroom with large shower, basin sink, and unlimited hot water. Elegant kitchenette with ample counter space, toaster oven, microwave, coffeemaker, electric kettle, hot plate and more. Convenient and comfortable place to rest and relax after adventurous days or crazy nights. Fabulous views of the Chisos Mountains and Mule Ears Peaks.

Plenty of privacy while just an easy five-minute walk to heart of the Terlingua Ghost Town. A short drive to Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, the Rio Grande River, or Lajitas.

You’ll want to come back again and again. We’ll be delighted to have you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Janet was a great host. She was very quick to respond right at arrival. The place is nice and isolated. It is a trailer so there weren't any doors for the restroom, so plan your travel buddy accordingly. The shower was small but adequate providing a warm shower most of the time which was very doable. The bed was very comfy which was extremely important after exploring Big Bend. The AC unit by the bed was perfect during our stay. The best parts were the layers upon layers of stars you're able to see from the place, how close it was to the main sights of Terlingua and how easy it was to visit Big Bend. It was a great experience staying here and I would stay here again.

Amazing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the Long Yellow Trailer was memorable to say the least - we got engaged while we were there! The space is big enough for two people and the AC is amazing after a long, hot hike at Big Bend. We loved the proximity not only to the park, but to Starlight Theatre, the Cottonwood grocery store and more. We arrived at 10:30 at night so it was a little difficult to find, so definitely bring a flashlight. The little fridge and stove top were perfect for cooking what we needed without taking up too much space. We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at the long yellow trailer.

  • 5 of 5

It is very clean, good location, and just a home away from home type feel to it. We would defiantly stay there again next trip.

Clean Comfortable Cozy Camping

  • 5 of 5

This was such a pleasant experience. The place was clean and appeared just as advertised. It was quiet, comfortable, close to the attractions in Terlingua and perfect for 2 days exploring Big Bend. Special thanks to the owner for making sure we were comfortable and well cared for.
