18ft Stealth Tiny House Built out of a Cargo Trailer


This is an 18ft stealth travel trailer tiny house that’s for sale out of Elmhurts Beach, Ontario, Canada for $39,900 CAD which is approximately $30,324 USD.

It started out as a brand new cargo trailer and then it was converted into a stealth tiny house on wheels so you could live tiny and adventurously without all of the attention of a tiny home on a trailer!

What do you think of cargo trailer conversions? Are they something that you’d consider for yourself? Let us know in the comments after you check this one out below. Thanks!

Our Interview with Mark (The Builder & Seller)

What are your name(s)?

Mark Jezierzanski

Where are you from?

Belle Ewart, Ontario, Canada

How did you first become seriously interested in tiny houses?

We were first introduced to the tiny home movement through TV shows on HGTV in Canada back 4-5 years ago. Newsletters such as yours in the past couple of years have further provided inspiration and a wealth of ideas for our first build.

As my wife and I become more interested in the lifestyle and simplicity of tiny homes, we set forth a plan to join the community.

What type of tiny house do you have or are you working on?

We bought a new 18′ NEO Cargo trailer from a dealer in Ontario and converted it into an off grid micro home on wheels.

Why did you go tiny? What are you hoping to get out of it for yourself?

We went tiny in order to focus on the elements of our lives that were most important to us at this stage in our life. We wanted something small, simple and easy to look after that also allowed us to set up our home anywhere required to further the business we were developing. An educational program that helped students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 enjoy Math and Physical Movement together in a fun way never experienced before. We travel with this program all over the province of Ontario and use our tiny home as a home and office. In spare time we park the trailer anywhere we want and enjoy all the beauty Ontario’s wilderness offers.

How long did it take you to finish your tiny house?

From start to not quite finish but to a usable home it took about 20 months in my spare time.

Did you do it yourself? Who helped? How much did it end up costing you to build it?

Most of the work was performed by myself with the exception of an amazing welder that specialized in aluminum work. His structural as well as creative experience helped tremendously with this one off project. I have over $70,000 Canadian in receipts including the purchase of this trailer.

How did you figure out where to put it?

Most of the time this home has been mobile but the rest of the time it was parked at friends and families properties around Ontario as well as Provincial Parks and the odd RV Park.

What’s been the most challenging part about going tiny so far?

Well, we made it so tiny that we did not have room for a shower, so using a health club for our showers has been the most challenging part of living in our tiny home.

What benefits are you experiencing after going tiny?

Purging all of the things you don’t need in life has been very rewarding, uplifting and very freeing.

We sold everything that did not fit or we did not need in the trailer and it was wonderful.

Everyone of course knows the cost savings of not having a mortgage, paying rent along with the never ending utility bills. The freedom to go anywhere you want is also a very attractive benefit of having a mobile tiny / micro home.

What helpful piece of advice would you give to others who are interested in going tiny?

Do your research. Talk to lots of people who have done the transition from conventional living to tiny.

Decide whether you want to stay in one place, or you want the mobility of an RV ( without the limitations of RV’s ) Set a budget only after you have figured out what you need and how small you are willing to go.

If you are not handy ( can’t build it yourself ) find artisans and trades that are experienced in building tiny and that you can trust to build it for you.

Do you have a website, blog, or social media pages where we can connect with you and follow along?

As we are selling this micro / tiny home so we can build a slightly larger tiny home here is the link to our Kijiji ad which talks in greater detail about what was done to customize our trailer as well as a couple of links to our Youtube videos.
