Quirky Micro Shelters in this Rotterdam Campsite
Des Res is a beautiful and colorful little building that can be enjoyed from the inside or outside. It’s like a shining rainbow!
The colors of the building are illuminated by the sun during the day, and at night the interior lights can give it a beautiful glow.
There are 11 other interesting object conversions to consider camping in while in Rotterdam. What’s your favorite one? Next is the High Rise.
It is considered the lowest tower in Rotterdam and was inspired by the Rotterdam harbor. It features a rooftop area where you can oversee the campsite.
This one-of-a-kind structure is made from an old mast section of a tower crane, and its translucent facade is made from reused materials.
Inside, it can accommodate up to four guests with two queen-size bunk beds accessorized with recycled ropes and nets.
Next is the Lemon Loft, a high-legged tiny yellow cabin that resembles some sort of DIY space capsule.
The interior is beautifully finished with wood, making it a cozy and unique space to stay in.
The large window at the top of this yellow cabin offers a panoramic view over the campsite.
This vintage electric van has been turned into a stationary micro cabin campsite in Rotterdam with its own entrance and private outdoor area.
The van was originally built as an electric steel agricultural wagon. In the 50s, it was used as a delivery van, and in the 70s it was a mobile shop vehicle. Who else knew there were EVs then?
Today, it’s a really fun campsite for 1-2 people!
The Trash Inn at Culture Campsite is a garbage container turned shelter.
The interior is outfitted with window coverings, shelving, and a double bed.
The outdoor area features an awning and seating.
This is Sweet Potato, a vintage electric delivery van turned into a micro shelter at a campsite in Rotterdam.
It is also known as Spijkstaal, which is a derivative of the Dutch village Spijkernisse where a blacksmith initially built electric steel agricultural wagons.
In the 50s they were used as delivery vans and in the 70s they were used as mobile street shops.
This is Little Pea, it’s a tiny house built using a combination of recycled animal silos.
Different parts of the silos were formed together to fit in the back of a pick-up truck for use as a mobile tiny house.
The Little Pea features a king-size bed. What do you think?
Sleeping Pod is a shelter made from upcycled calf igloos.
Raised on a steel frame, it offers views of the rest of the campsite.
The Sleepwalker tent cabin. It’s a two-person cabin designed for sleeping. It has a wooden floor, cupboards, and a canvas covering to give you that tent feeling.
The tiny cabin has two doors that open completely and a wide window in the back that pretty much acts as your headboard.
Val Ross, the recycled animal silo spaceship shelter.
It houses a comfortable double bed inside.
On their website, it is described as “the architectural sleeping phenomenon”.

This was a wonderful article! I loved each and every one of the tiny shelters for camping! I don’t know if I could pick one over the others, they were all great! If I ever get to Rotterdam, you know where I’m heading!
Well,THAT was fun! favorites? Well, all of them for ingenuity and creativity, but my personal fave is the Little Pea! I could drive that one away to a boat to America in a flash. The woodwork is darned incredible and I could look at and stroke its curviness it all day. My other favorite is the Val Ross….it looks like a cement mixer with projections for telescopes and view ports, and I love it. It would be a wonderful vacation to just go there fora week, and stay in as many of these crazy gorgeous creations as possible. Thanks for sharing them!!
So they found anything you could fit a bed into! Nice Job!
The E vans were so cool. I’d never heard of those as they are larger versions of my E trike van. Hate to see them as stationary houses since likely be cheap, easy to get it running again and with lithium battery, get 200 mile range and stop using FFs.
I’ve been driving this style 30 yrs and saw my first EVs, 4, a factory Henney KiloWatt and 3 conversions, all under 1500lb cars in 67 at a McDonald’s show and tell when I was 14. It taught me young EVs can work.
There has always been EVs especially in industrial, delivery, commuter, shopping areas where they are hard to beat. We’ve had whole communities for 7 decades now driving very light EV cars around here in Florida. Though any after 1980 were restricted to 35 mph or less roads. Vs one made before that were MCs or cars, trucks legally.
Big oil and auto have spent over $1B of propaganda trying to keep EVs off the market over 60 yrs with one lie after another. Vs I drive my EV trike pickup for $1/day and so simple I built it in 34 hrs, something neither want as kills their business which is finally happening.
