Couple with Two Dogs Traveling in a Stealth Tiny House

This is the story of a couple with two dogs who are living and traveling in a stealth tiny house.

From the outside, you’ll notice a standard utility trailer with a fold-down ramp in the back.

When you go inside, you’ll find a couch that turns into a bed, plenty of hooks for hiking gear, a kitchenette, and a desk.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    I love seeing how small/tiny living can be done with dogs! I will definitely check out their blog.

    Nice, I like the futon on the dresser, other storage features to cut down on dead space. I think some thing like this is a good way to go, at least for a starter home.

    They remodeled their trailer in February so the pics on this post are old. They took out the shower and bathroom walls because they found they weren’t really using them since they have been able to shower pretty much where they end up parking, at either a friends or a campground. — Here is the post with the new pics. http://paygasnotrent.com/2016/02/we-remodeled/

      Hi Kathleen,

      Kelly here–co-creator of the unit. Thank you for sharing the updated link!

    Yeah, real stealthy, with that ramp down. Not really happy with a good part of the interior design. But what really, really, stand out to me is that the door has the original


    Stupid computer, lost the top half of my post.
    Real stealthy, with that ramp down. I’m not thrilled with most of the inside design. But what really, really, gets me is that the original locking hasp is still on the outside. If someone came along, and wanted to be funny, they could just lock that door closed from the outside. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, stop the video just before she opens the door, and it should be clear to you.

      Hi Theo,

      Kelly here–the co-creator of this unit. We can actually undo the outside handle by opening the window and reaching through. We purposefully left it on there so if we park on the side of the street (which we have done), we can reach through the window and clasp the outside handle so it looks like no one is sleeping in there. “Stealth mode” was important to us! No worries–we are safe! 🙂

        Until you get someone who slaps a padlock on it.

          Well, I’m sure anything is possible, but of all the things to go wrong, people walking around with padlocks in their pockets randomly locking other people’s trailer isn’t one of our concerns. We feel the benefit to the outdoor lock outweighs the off chance something like that would happen. Thanks for your thoughts! We love questions or thoughts so please feel free to ask any other questions.

          Trust, it’s nice. However, I used to know people who would go FIND a padlock. Me, I go with ‘just in case’. and ‘better safe than sorry’. Makes me sleep easier. But your choice, not mine.

    North America is a huge continent. Five stars for explorers!

    And it connects to Central America and South America… and a slow ferry to everyplace else. Why stay home! Why stay ‘safe’! Travel is learning first-hand, not second-hand out of a book…

    PS: Gotta have a dog!

      Are, Why stay home! Why stay ‘safe’! statements? Or questions? Because if they are questions they should have question marks.
      Why stay home indeed, travel can be fun, and educational. But, “why stay ‘safe’? Try going to a place or three where you are ‘not’ safe. Then you will understand ‘stay’ safe. Too many idiots out there who are in a dangerous place and want to gawk and/or take photos, don’t know enough to move out of the area. And that ain’t staying safe.

      LOL I’m pretty sure that was directed at me. Wasn’t the first time someone took umbrage at what I wrote. Well, I’m probably a bit more experienced at it than most. I’ve gone thru one war, two revolutions, and about seven terrorist incidents. Last time I got back to the US was in ’79, and the world’s gotten less safe since then. I’ll travel, but only in the US now, I look at the rest of the world as too unstable for me to risk it. What I was ‘trying’ to get across, and apparently failed, is that it is always possible to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Best is not be there, next is leave the area, or if you can’t leave then make yourself as inconspicuous as possible. A LOT of people in the world will harm you for no other reason than the fact that you are American. In the ’70s, two Americans were gunned down about a block from where I lived. They were simply walking home after work, and were targeted simply because they were American, and they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Travel where you want, just use caution in some places. Remember, the people in the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the airplanes, all thought they were safe, but they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

      Dang, I stopped getting the newsletter because I wasn’t getting anything out of it, but still get these comments every once in awhile. Now I subscribe to a couple of other newsletters, with a lot of how it’s done info, getting quite a bit from them. Have a nice day.

        Hey, we all gotta go sometime! I’ve been through a lot also, but that doesn’t keep me from bussing all over Mexico or backpacking in Asia, alone, after retirement. And living out of my Vanagon all over the states. If someone wants to off me, I’ve had a good run and don’t waste time on paranoia. Except for crazy drivers.
