Couple’s Cargo Trailer Camper Conversion


This is the story of one couple’s utility trailer to camper conversion.

They took a used 6 x 10 cargo trailer and turned it into a mini-camper with lots of amenities. I’m pretty sure you will find it impressive. It not only has loads of amenities, but it can also still function as a very useful cargo trailer. Take a look below!

    Congrats on a lot of work well done. Unfortunate truth is, you can buy a similar, used travel trailer cheaper than a used Haulmark.

      It’s practical. Maybe they didn’t pay much for the trailer. I lived in a travel trailer for 2 years and was going to turn it into a tiny home, but things changed and I sold it for half of what I paid for it. If I were to do it again, I’d opt for starting from scratch on a used trailer frame. : )

        I’d build a small houseboat on boat trailer travels better and a lot of places to live free on the water. Or live cheaply in expensive downtowns.
        This is a nice one though I’m more for the couch-bed/settee, storage under on each side so you don’t have to move stuff to sleep and a full lounge chair for each using cushions or a hinged bed board to make the couch-bed into a lounge chair.
        A seat back can fill the in between to make full size if wanted.
        Alex can you cut the number of photos to enough to show well as more often I just click away to somewhere else instead of going through so many. I only did all these so I could write this note as was ready to leave before 1/3 way through.

    Not bad at all! Looks like you touched all the bases and made it work. I would change two things for your own needs down the road. I can see you are not an electrician. Make a common box for power distribution including the main 120/240v breaker and branches (I see a 120v two breaker box near the floor and an outlet), solar, and 12V. Now, all that cannot go into one box or pipe. Create a panel with terminals fused for 12v would be nice and run power to type and voltage in one direction for in and the other for out. I would encourage using EMT and stranded wire like THHN instead of Romex. If you have an electrical issue you can pull and replace it with one pull without additional wall damage. Plumbing the same, run the plastic pipe through EMT into a duel manifold – hot and cold, each has its own stop valve. If something breaks or freezes causing an issue just pull it out and slip another in the pipe. Two things that are not thought about in a build. Keep it simple, neet and easily repairable. I still like the trailer, a great idea!

    The main thing I do not like about this cargo trailer is the fact that it is not sitting in my driveway ready for me to use to go camping & fishing.

    What a sweet setup; I love the on demand water heater.

    Beautiful build. I loved every picture until I saw the fuse block under the water hoses and my heart stopped. Water goes under electricity not over it. It could cause a tragedy.
