You might remember Le’shaun’s hit rap single “Doin’ It” which she recorded with LL Cool J. Her first taste of tiny living was on the tour bus she lived on while traveling around the country. But eventually, she became the owner of a 2700 square foot house where she and her daughter lived during her daughter’s pregnancy.
When her daughter moved out, Le’shaun was interested in doing something different — so she DIYed a tiny house from a toy hauler/cargo trailer! But the self-proclaimed “undercover treehugger” didn’t sacrifice her style to go tiny. You’ll find a mini chandelier, a velvet love seat, and all kinds of glamorous special touches which reflect her personality and make her little space a home.
Cargo trailers make a great blank canvas for tiny home conversions. Unlike vans, they feature straight sides which are usually easier to insulate/frame. This couple did an awesome job making their trailer a true home, including a bathroom.
They hang out on a futon from Amazon that turns into a comfortable Queen-sized bed. When it’s all folded up, they have desk space and a living room. The wife paints, and her art is the stunning focal point of the trailer.
Jim is a professional carpenter who is taking his skills to the road in his DIY cargo trailer camper he now calls home. After selling his big house of 25 years, Jim spent two months working and living in his cargo trailer, making it into a stealthy rig with room for all of his wood-working tools!
He used five different types of wood in the build, including some veneer he’d been saving for the right project for about 15 years. During the past year, he’s kept asking himself why on earth he didn’t make the move to nomadic, tiny living sooner! Check out the Tiny Home Tours interview below.
This is a stealthy and RV-certified 28-ft. cargo trailer tiny house. Well, I call it stealth but at this point it’s pretty obvious that it’s an RV since it has added windows. But other than that, one could very well assume it is still some sort of work trailer. Sometimes these are built out with skylight windows for added stealthiness.
I don’t think I have ever come across a cargo-trailer build that is stated to be RV-certified. For some, that may not even matter, but if one ever plans on staying in a campground an RV certification may help increase the odds to be allowed to park and camp onsite with a tiny house like this. So take a look and let us know what you think! Is this a style that you would ever consider?
I love the way people use all kinds of tiny spaces to create homes, and toy hauler conversions are no exception. This industrial tiny house on wheels fits in all the necessary amenities and there’s no loft! Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living space all on one floor. Plus the vehicle is street legal in all 50 states, and easily towed by a 1/2 ton truck.
A small couch could easily fit in the living space for a nice area to relax, and the kitchen has a cooktop and convection oven that can be stored during transit. The bathroom has a large metal shower and a flush toilet, and there’s a downstairs Murphy bed you can push up to allow room for bikes and other small toys.
It’s currently for sale in North Carolina for $27,500, and you can contact the seller over at Tiny House Marketplace.

This is the story of one couple’s beautiful, cozy, and stealthy cargo trailer tiny house conversion named Minnie. It’s a 112-sq.-ft. trailer turned into a very nice camper!
Why is it so exciting? Well, when you see it you’ll understand. But it features a king bed, full bath with toilet and shower, and a flip-up table. It’s really cool what you can do with one of these trailers, don’t you think? With this one, they used the area over the trailer hitch to create a spacious shower.
