Couple Build Cargo Trailer Tiny House While Living in a Truck!

This is the story of a couple (and their dog) who built their own stealthy cargo trailer tiny house while living in the back of their truck.

The most amazing part is that they built it while they were moving around usually on public land!

    I really like this! Using a cargo trailer is a great idea ! Just a couple of thoughts like where do you do your cooking? And with cargo trailers , the doors usually lock from the outside, so is it possible for a bad person to lock you in?

    Thanks for posting the video, it was enjoyable. I liked how practical their setup is. Using a favorite book for wallpaper was a hoot. This also shows that most anyone with the desire (and extra$) can build a usable living space. Great!

    I’m impressed at how livable they’ve made it, with just simple carpentry and not a lot of money. The video did not address the toilet issue. Do they keep something inside? Or set up an outhouse? Did they insulate? Nice to see a home like this–nothing fancy, but plenty of comfort.

    I like it a lot ! It remind me of my truck camping days in the Western U.S. !
