Boyd’s DIY Micro Camper on Wheels

This is Boyd’s DIY micro camper on wheels.

He wanted to build a tiny home on wheels, but decided to build a tiny camper on a trailer first to practice. I think that’s a fantastic idea. Have you ever thought of building a tinier version of a THOW before designing/building your final version of one?

    We received similar advice before building our first boat == build the dinghy first.

    I have a car with a hitch and most large size tiny homes are too big for my little car and it’s hitch. Just wondering what size is that trailer and what is the weight of the camper?

      That was our problem as well. I have a prius, and although they say it is not built to tow anything (according to Toyota) most of the info I found online indicated that it would have no problem with 2000 pounds. I have not weighed the camper yet, but I don’t think it is over that amount. We have actually been towing it with a Nissan Rogue. Absolutely no problem with it. I have towed a travel trailer in the past, and it was always exciting when it started occillating back and forth… This works great for camping especially since it is so easy to tow around to music festivals, and it does not matter if they have electrical hookups given the solar power.

    What’s the wall construction? 2×4, 2×3, or something else? Looks great. Do you have the actual interior L&W?

      The trailer was 5 ft by 8 ft. Most of the walls were made of 2×3’s but the corners I did with 4×4’s to give them extra support. the length and width inside would essentially be about 6 inches less due to the wall and studs, so it is about 4’6″ by about 7’6″. Works perfectly for the full size bed (futon).

      I have a lot of pix of the build if you are interested in seeing them. Email me at [email protected], or if you are on FB, send me a request and I will send a link to the video and pix. Thansk!

    I have a trailer just like the one you used and would like to build one like yours. Anything you could share would be great and helpful
