Couple Built Micro Camper, Turned Into Builders, And Ended Up in a Tiny House on Wheels


This is the story of Hansen Adventure Works, a small company that built and sold around 42 micro campers with prices usually ranging from just $2,500 to $3,000.

It all started when Zach and Tessa built a micro camper for themselves and people started offering them money for it at gas stations. That’s when they decided to turn the idea into a business.

Recently, they sold their little micro house construction company and built a tiny home on wheels to live in. This story is brought to you by Faircompanies. Thank you!

    I’d love to have some contact information on Zach. I travel a lot for my job and I’ve been looking for something like this for a while.

      Since they sold the business, it doesn’t look like he’ll be making more of these and they didn’t say who they sold the business to or whether they will continue making the same kind of products.

      However, these are basically modeled after conventional micro-campers. So those may be a option for you… Unless you’re specifically looking for something custom made and more in the style of a Tiny House, then just check for a custom builder, as many of them will literally build you anything you want.

      Companies like Incredible Tiny Homes will custom make anything you want but can still offer reasonable prices, for example… There’s also a number of companies that specifically make custom campers…

    Fascinating! Love the campers. IT’s a great idea!

    Who did they sell to?! I need to purchase one of these asap!

    • James D. April 29, 2018, 12:39 am

      They didn’t say but many custom builders can build you a micro-camper style tiny house…
